Summer time, fun time!
How will you spend your summer? We agree, there is nothing like enjoying a few of those long, lazy days hanging out in the back yards or riding our bikes to Jefferson Park for open swim hours. But really, a kid only needs so many of those days, and mom and dad need to get to work. A group St. Constance alumni along with Mrs. Mikrut and Miss Blecka are about to begin the 6th year of St. Constance Summer Camp, and you should check it out. www.scsummercamp.weebly.com.
Mrs. Mikrut and Miss Blecka hire alumni as counselors and current students as counselors-in-training. It’s a great way for young people to learn and earn, while serving their community.
Alumni Donates organ
As we begin Holy Week, we continue our Lenten journey that began on Ash Wednesday by praying, fasting, and giving alms. Lent provides a special opportunity to help others be transformed by hope. Our St. Constance School has an incredible legacy of love that transforms the lives of children with hope. Generations have been taught the value of faith through St. Constance School and our religious education programs. That faith helps to support our students throughout their lives and continues to inspire them to be the best versions of themselves.
A beautiful example of this love, faith and sacrifice is the journey that Sandy Baranski, class of 1976 has taken. Sandy is recovering from surgery after donating a kidney to an extended family member two weeks ago. Both Sandy and the recipient are healing and on the road to full recoveries.
Please keep Sandy and her family, as well as all the sick and suffering in your prayers as we move towards the celebration of Easter.
April is National Donate Life Month.

The 2019 Pre-K graduating class enters the St. constance school step up program
During the last week of February, the four-year-old students in Mrs. Krause’s pre-school class participated in the “St. Constance Step Up” program. Step Up participants spent some quality time in Miss Moore’s Kindergarten class for a taste of what life will be like next year after they graduate from pre-school.
The soon-to -be Kindergarteners visited Miss Moore’s classroom in pairs and were guided by their experienced, older friends as they explored the exciting world of higher education.
At the end of the week, both the pre-k and kindergarten classes celebrated Read Across America Day and the birthday of Dr. Seuss by reading some of the Doctor’s best loved works and wearing hats that honored everyone’s favorite feline, The Cat in the Hat.
The pre-school class of 2019 were also presented with their first ‘graduation shirt’ which lists all their classmates’ names on the back and their year of 8th grade graduation from St Constance 2028!
Fun and excitement abound at St. Constance. Please join us in supporting your alma mater.
It's a sign! Word out on the street is that St. Constance is building successful futures one child at a time. We have a sweet treat for the first member from each class that posts a photo of the new St Constance banner on Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat.
