Homecoming Week is over but this week ends with 11:30 a.m. dismissal on Thursday to allow for Parent Teacher Conferences.
Next week is a full, five-day week. Our original school calendar listed Friday November 3 as an in-service day - it is not. You can download and print an
updated calendar here.
Congratulations To Our King and Queen!
Congratulations to Owen Talbott and Sarah Brady, our 2017 Homecoming King and Queen. They were announced at halftime of Friday's Homecoming victory over Tolono Unity.
We Are October's "Bag 4 My Cause" Recipient at Schnucks
I moved this up because, at last report, four bags had been purchased at Schnuck's and, while we're grateful for the $4 contribution currently coming our way, I thought maybe a little reminder would be helpful: This month, visit the Schnucks at 1701 E. Empire St. purchase the special "Giving" bag and Central Catholic receives $1! Check out this flyer for more information. Thank you for your support!

We have a blood drive in our Gym on TUESDAY, October 24. Click here and search by zip code “61704” to select Central Catholic and your donation time. You can also call us at 661-7000 and sign up for a donation.

We're Hosting a Football Playoff Game SATURDAY!
We are hosting a first round playoff game against Beardstown on SATURDAY, October 28 at 2:00 p.m. This is an IHSA event so tickets are $5 for everyone, including students. All tickets will be sold at the door. If you have a Reserved Parking Spot for the season, you spot is still reserved for this game. If you'd like to reserve a spot for the playoff game,
e-mail Kevin Cook.
Oh, and since we're hosting, we're also selling concessions. If you'd like to help out (in a climate-controlled environment),
sign up here.
AND, stop by the school store during conferences or at the game. We have new crew-neck sweatshirts, long-sleeve dryfit t-shirts, "Central Catholic Alumni" and "Central Catholic Parent" hoodies, stocking hats, caps and more!
