We would also like to thank Mrs. Garrigan, Miss Cannon, Father DeBlock, Father Gow, and all the teachers and staff of St. Catherine's for preparing our children to move on to high school. We are very thankful for the time and dedication you have given to our children!
Field Day and All School Picnic
We would like to thank all the volunteers who helped run all the fun, exciting, and wet games for our students during our Field Day yesterday. A very special thank you to Amy Amegasse for planning all the activities for our field day. The students and faculty had an amazing time!
We would also like to thank our Home and School Association for sponsoring the picnic lunch for tour students, faculty, and staff. It was a great way to finish off the fun activities from the morning. Thank you to all the families who supported our Home and School events this year to help fund events like this for our school. Your support is greatly appreciated! 
Summer is a great time to schedule physicals, dental, and eye appointments for your child for the 2019-2020 school year. Vision forms and physicals are due by the first day of school but can be turned in on Fee Day, August 14th. Every child entering Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 6th  grade, or school for the first time must have proof of having a health examination and immunization prior to the opening day of school. Forms are to be completed by the doctor and are due by Fee Day. Dental exams are required for students in kindergarten, second, and sixth grade and are due in May. Vision examinations by a licensed optometrist are required of students entering Kindergarten and any student enrolling for the first time in an Illinois School. State forms for this exam are due prior to the first day of school. 
Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP)
Summer is here, but you can still accumulate tuition rebates by purchasing cash and carry scrip cards from the school office. If you are a Presto Pay family, you can purchase ScripNow ecards or ReloadNow anytime 24/7 to accumulate tuition rebates. 
To create your own online TRIP and Presto Pay account, sign up at and place an order for next week to start earning money towards your tuition. The code to create an account is 2CL3966D181. The only way to continue receiving tuition rebates during the summer is through Presto Pay. If you are interested in activating the Presto Pay option for your account, simply set it up by following the prompts in your account. Once you get a 4-digit code, send it to the school office via email, to complete the process. You can also reload current scrip cards and shop for ScripNow cards online, anytime.
