Celebrating the New School Year!

Celebrating the start of the school year, we joined in prayer for our first all-school liturgy on Monday, August 27 with an opening Mass. Following the liturgy, our top scholars were recognized for their academic achievements. It was great to be together as a school community, reconnecting with each other and welcoming new students, faculty and staff. All the best to our students in the year ahead!

Fall Play Auditions
Good luck to all students auditioning for the fall drama production of  These Shining Lives   on  Tuesday & Wednesday, September 4 & 5, 2018. Tuesday auditions will be  from  3:15 pm  to 8 pm and  Wednesday  callbacks will be  from  3:15 to 6 pm. 

These Shining Lives  is a play written by Melanie Marnich. Based on the true story of four women who worked in a watch factory in Ottawa, Illinois, the play tells the story of the  toxic and deadly levels of radium poisoning of over 4,000 factory workers  in the 1920s, and how these 4 women  took their company to court and achieved a long-lasting victory over corporations with poor workplace conditions and worker's compensation that is still in effect today.
 Questions may be directed to Ms. Bohlander at
The play will be presented November 15-18, 2018.
