We started some more focused work on a special virtual Advent Service for this year. It is hard to celebrate and prepare for Christmas when we have so many stresses, but we hope to present a gift to our school, families, and communities through an Advent celebration to put our focus back on God with Advent.
We know Thanksgiving is going to be difficult this year, but celebrate and be thankful for those closest to you, and maybe have students write a nice note or draw a picture for those not able to attend your traditional celebration!

CURRENT COVID SITUATION
Gov Pritzker has moved IL into Phase 4, Tier 3. He has left the school closure decision to each District. We are under the Diocese of Belleville, and as of now, we will continue in the Hybrid mode. If you have a student in-school, and you feel it safer to go remote, please contact the office, so we can make the transition smooth. If a change in school Hybrid mode happens, you will receive a notice from the Principal.
Our school week ends Tuesday with Mass at 2:15, then we are off until Monday, Nov 30. Be Safe; Be Thankful!
