SEPTEMBER 18, 2019

Dear Parents and Guardians:

The September 11th Mass prepared by the 8th grade students was a beautiful experience. Thank you to all first responders who attended. I was so proud of our school and our families and have heard so many compliments about the Mass.

During the Mass, we collected $115 which is donated to The 100 Club of Chicago, which provides for the families of first responders who have lost their lives in the line of duty. This membership based organization offers several forms of financial assistance, access to resources and moral support. All sworn federal, state, county and local first responders stationed in Cook, Lake and McHenry Counties are included. We are happy to support them in their work with first responders and their families.

The year continues to be wonderful and the students have settled in nicely. I do want to share a few reminders now that we are used to the new routines and expectations.

  • Please take a minute to read the School handbook on uniform expectations. As we ease into fall, the number of cooler days will increase and the tendency for student to wear non-uniform sweatshirts will, as well.
  • Please also review the expectations around carbonated beverages not being allowed for lunch. Water and juice are fine, but sodas and carbonated items are not. No glass containers are allowed.
  • Please note that students who arrive to school at 7:45 AM or earlier are expected to go to Before Care. Students should not be left unattended.
  • Please help us keep our grounds fresh by keeping students off the lawn at dismissal. With over 300 children being dismissed, too much traffic on the lawn can cause a great deal of harm.
  • Please make sure the office has current phone numbers in case of an emergency or a sick child.
Thank you for the many things you do and for all of the sacrifices you make to send your child to St. Celestine School.

With Gratitude and Blessings,

Sheila M. Klich - Principal - St. Celestine School
