BE THAT BEACON OF LIGHT FOR OUR STUDENTS
The theme of the Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic Schools for the 2016-2017 year is “You are the Light of the World.” With that in mind, I would like to share what I consider is the philosophy of our school. Please join me as we keep our teachers and families in prayer this year as they are certainly the “light” paving the way for this generation of students.
A Christ Our Savior Catholic School education provides doctrinal instruction, faith formation, liturgical experiences and the development of moral values. Our goal is to design and deliver a curriculum that challenges all students to reach their full potential. We recognize that each student is unique and created with dignity and special gifts, learning in different ways. Our teaching styles address individual learning needs. Our educational program aims to make each child a lifelong learner and a contributing member of society. Working along with families, we will develop a partnership that encourages academic excellence, faith formation, character development, evangelization and Christian discipleship. The message of Christ is taught and lived every day.
BOARD OF SPECIFIED JURISDICTION
If any parishioner from our six founding parishes is interested in joining our Board of Specified Jurisdiction (similar to a school board), please contact me at 708-333-8173 Ext. 24. If you have an interest in Catholic school education, this is a wonderful way to become involved in further developing Christ Our Savior Catholic School. We would like to thank Felicia Horton for the time that she has spent on our Board. Felicia now works for the Archdiocese of Chicago as a Marketing Director for our Vicariate VI as well as Vicariate III.
