Dear Parents and Friends,
Welcome to St. Isidore Catholic School ~ Home of the Cyclones!
As the mother of two and a veteran educator, I know and appreciate the value of a Catholic education. A good education begins when a child’s school experience is a positive one; filled with engaging teachers, friendly peers, bright classrooms, a rigorous curriculum, and an atmosphere in which God’s beauty, truth, and goodness are embedded in all we do. Academic excellence and spiritual growth truly go hand in hand at St. Isidore. Our school indeed challenges our students with a strong academic curriculum, while at the same time, offers resource and enrichment to allow all students to learn and grow at their own pace. St. Isidore School works collaboratively with our families to create a strong partnership between home and school. We are proud to partner with you, our parents, in the education of your child/ren.
Parents, teachers, clergy, and administration at St. Isidore all have an important role in encouraging our children to become active and engaged learners. Working together, we link the curriculum and weekly liturgies to previous knowledge and experience, while promoting further exploration of new ideas and inquiry based learning through our STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) programming.
St. Isidore School is accredited and recognized by the Illinois State Board of Education and AdvancEd. We offer many services to our families such as full day and half day preschool, full day kindergarten, before and after-school care, and a hot lunch program. Resources and programs for our students include school social work, a speech and language pathologist, a resource team, Spanish instruction, choir, band, athletics, STREAM, Geography Bee, chess club, liturgy participation and so much more!
St. Isidore students, families, and staff actively participate in community events and are proud to represent SIS! Our active Home and School Association supports various activities that enrich the education and lives of our children. They also organize school wide social events for our students and our families. Our athletic board works diligently to oversee the extra-curricular sports program at SIS. The group ensures that our sports programs are an enjoyable physical, emotional and spiritual experience for our student athletes while promoting SIS school spirit.
Cyclone spirit is alive and well at St. Isidore School! We are happy that you have chosen to be a part of our family where we motivate our students to become the best faith-filled individuals they can be!
In Christ’s Peace,
Mrs. Corie Alimento
