Dear St. Constance School Families,

Happy Valentine’s Day!

You are cordially invited to join the students at the regular 8:00 am. Mass next Wednesday, February 20th. Thank you for your efforts in making sure that your child is punctual.

A few weeks ago, you received the Application for Re-Enrollment 2019-2020, along with information regarding the necessity for a slight tuition increase. Please note that the Re-Enrollment Form and the $125.00 registration fee for each child is due on or before Friday, March 1, 2019. Unfortunately, any late Re-Enrollment Forms will incur a $100.00 late fee per family. Please keep in mind our Referral Incentive for families who are named as the referring family for a new registration. You will receive a $250 credit per child registered which will be applied towards your tuition. In addition, the 1st class with 100% Re-Enrollment responses will receive a class pizza party!

We are always looking for enthusiastic individuals who would be willing to promote/market our school and assist us in our efforts of recruitment. If you would like further information as to how you can become a Parent Ambassador, please contact our Marketing and Enrollment Director, Ms. Maria Montes De Oca at 773-283-2311 or

I would like to take this opportunity and thank the entire School Board for sponsoring the recent Family Valentine’s Dinner Dance.

I would also like to acknowledge and thank the many individuals who stepped in to assist us throughout the evening as needed. In addition, I would like to thank the many individuals/businesses for their generous donations. We are truly grateful for your support. Please watch for a more specific recap in upcoming newsletters.

The following Band students participated in the National Catholic Band Association’s Solo Adjudication on Sunday, January 27, 2019 at St. Patrick High School. Each student performed a solo before a single judge, and that judge determined if that student deserved a gold medal (1), silver medal (2), or bronze medal (3). “P” stands for a perfect score in each of 6 categories and these students will receive a different gold medal. Congratulations to our Band Director, Mrs. Eileen Pavlik and the following students; Paul Biernat (1), Kamil Burzec (1), Lucas Drozd (1), Marcus Drozd (1), Brandon Erazo (1), Emily Jablonski (1), Phillip Kaczor (P), Patryk Kasprzyk (2), Sebastian Koziol (1), William Markevich (1), Alyssa Meyer (1), Natalia Novello-Sawicki (P), Jaidalynn Ortiz (1), Alexandra Pilch (1), Tabitha Shaheen (2), and Paul VanAllman (1).

Thank you to those individuals who were able to join us for our recent Spirit Night at Red Robin Restaurant. A total profit earned for the school was $99.92. In addition, we are grateful to those of you who enjoyed the School Board/Holy Name Pancake Breakfasts in October and January. A total profit earned for the school from these two dates was $545.00.

This week we would also like to thank you for the many delicious treats shared with us in honor of Valentine’s Day. They were enjoyed by all of us!

This is to remind you that per the school calendar, school will be closed on Monday, February 18th in celebration of the President’s Day holiday. Please note that Band Lessons will be held on this day.

Parents, we ask for you to please NOT park in the Rectory side driveway; especially on Mass days. We also ask that you do NOT block the driveway at any time while dropping off your child. This driveway should only be utilized by the priests and parish employees. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Finally, this is to remind you that I will be out of the office next week Tuesday-Friday, February 19-22.

Have a pleasant weekend.
