Alumni eNews - October 2023
Day of Giving
Our annual Day of Giving is TOMORROW - help us meet and exceed our $200,000 goal! Each gift impacts everything that makes up the daily educational experience at SFHS.
New this year: Our Alumni Decade of Giving Challenge! We are challenging our alumni to give in record numbers.

There are two chances for recognition: the decade with the highest number of donors and the decade with the total amount raised win bragging rights.

We are a National Blue Ribbon School!
St. Francis High School was named an Exemplary High Performing National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education on Tuesday, September 19! 
This award is the nation's highest academic honor. 
Only 1% of schools in the nation have an active Blue Ribbon and we are the only private high school in Illinois to receive the award this year.
We are also the only school in the nation named a Blue Ribbon and Microsoft Showcase School in the same year!
Hall of Honor - Nominate today!
Do you know someone who should be named a Distinguished Alumni or in our Hall of Honor? Distinguished Alumni are recognized for their actions following graduation. The Hall of Honor recognizes alumni for their achievements while they were SFHS students.

This event is held biennially and the committee is accepting nominations for the 2024 event through March 1, 2024. Nominate today!
