6 | January 25, 2018 | 22nd century media private school guide Welcome to St. Catherine Laboure school As each new school year brings new beginnings, we have been happy to welcome many new students in all grades, PK through 8th, from throughout Glenview and surrounding towns. St. Catherine Laboure school has been sought out due to our small, family-focused atmosphere and rigorous academic programs. SCL’s exceptional teachers continue to develop our academic program, which includes full day preschool and full day Kindergarten. Spanish classes have been expanded to include grades PK through 8th, our science lab has been updated with better resources for a more hands on science education. Google Classroom has been incorporated into technology classes, and we continue to work with area high schools to ensure that our curriculum prepares our students for success. This year again saw the success of our fourth annual SCL Golf Outing, held at the Highland Park Country Club this past June. More than $48,000 was raised, all of which directly supported the school’s Technology programs, including the purchase of new Chrome Books for the Jr. High students, and new laptops for the staff. Lastly, St. Catherine Laboure Parish was blessed to install the first shrine to honor Our Lady of Fatima. Cardinal Blasé Cupich celebrated mass with Pastor Faither Maina and many faithful to celebrate this special shrine. It is the first and only shrine in all of North America, and we are so excited to welcome all Our Lady of Perpetual Help School A Premiere Private Education in the Finest Catholic Tradition Parishioners and those who wish to visit the shrine daily. You can find this shrine on the South West corner of the Church. As Cardinal Cupich said, “You are truly a Parish of United Nations!” The SCL School community is grateful for a wonderful 2017 and we look forward to more great things ahead in 2018! We invite all families to visit our school during our upcoming Open House between 9-11 a.m. on Jan. 28. This event starts our celebration of Catholic Schools Week.
