St. Viator goes to Washington D.C.

St. Viator’s seventh grade students, Aaliyah Navarro, Emma Jones, and Amlin Osiecki are among the many students who had the honor of being invited to participate in the Junior National Young Leader Conference in Washington D.C. These students, and others from all over the country, were nominated for their academic achievements and leadership abilities. They will spend a week in our nation’s capital where it will serve as their living classroom providing amazing experiences related to personal leadership, future goals, and finally, global and community service. They are particularly excited about their sleep over at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. We are very proud of our St. Viatorians!!!!

St. Viator Rallies Around Catholic Schools Week

We're hosting special events every day this week in honor of Catholic Schools Week. The National Junior Honor Society Induction ceremony took place on Monday, the Superintendent of the Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic Schools, Dr. Jim Rigg, visited and teachers enjoyed an appreciation lunch on Tuesday, and the PeaceBuilder's Talent Show (pictured) and the "Power of Play" parent speaker were today. To wind up the week, all parents who new to St. Viator this school year are invited for a continental breakfast on Friday at 7:50 a.m.

National Catholic Schools Week

A longstanding tradition at St. Viator, National Catholic Schools Week takes place this year from January 31 through February 1. A Catholic education develops and nurtures the students' faith in their family, their community and themselves. St. Viator provides an education that fosters self-esteem, promotes self-growth and academically prepares children for a future of success. During this week, we celebrate the dedication, enthusiasm and commitment of our teachers and parents as well as the success of our children. 

Please join us for the Catholic Schools Week Open House for current and prospective families on Saturday, January 30, 2-4:30 p.m. We'll provide tours of the school and gym, and faculty, staff and parents will be available to answer your questions. After the Open House, we hope you'll attend 5 p.m. mass to celebrate the beginning of Catholic Schools Week.
