Welcome Schools Open House - This Thursday, January 15, 6-8 pm

All current families are encouraged to join us this Thursday evening to meet representatives from 9 different Catholic schools in the surrounding area and learn more about what they have to offer our students and families. Each school will be situated in a different classroom and will bring materials for our current school parents and students to take and read through. There will be representatives from each school including the principal, teachers, parents and possibly even students. Since this is during dinner time, the welcoming schools are treating our families to pizza and soft drinks. Please join us in this very important first step of getting to know your options for the next school that your children will call "home."



Springtime Farewell Open House Event being Planned for Friday, April 17- Looking for Volunteers and Reunion Coordinators

As our mission sadly has moved from "rescue" to "recovery", so to speak, we now turn our attention to hosting a springtime open house event which would invite all stakeholders...current families, alumni, former teachers and staff, former clergy and sisters, volunteers, neighbors, parishioners and friends...into the school for one final farewell. The date has been chosen and we're hoping that many of the Alumni Classes will consider planning a Reunion around this Open House so that everyone has a chance to walk the Hallowed Halls one last time. Please contact Jodi Thyen at the school (773-342-7550) if you would like to help out in any way. More details about the format will be forthcoming.

UPDATES ON SOS activities

  • As Archbishop Cupich was clear after his visit on December 14 that the decision fromt he archdiocese to close our school would not be overturned, we must now press on with finding new schools for all of our students.
  • The Archbishop confirmed by letter to Mrs. Huzenis that he understood our situation and that he apreciated all of the backstory but again, the verdict stands.
  • He also confirmed that he read all of the students' letters personally and that he appreciated each one and sends his thanks to the kids.
  • While anyone is certainly free to write a personal letter to the Archbishop further explaining why we should not be closing, the letter campaign has officially come to a close.
  • Because it is clear now after much solicitation that there are no major donors that are willing/able to contribute the large sums of money needed to subsidize St. Hyacinth's school budget for the next year or more, we are ending any fundraising specifically earmarked toward
  • With roughtly $1,100 in donations made through the GoFundMe efforts and another roughly $2,000 in donations and fundraising directly to the school, these funds will be redirected, as promised, to St. Hyacinth students that will continue on in Catholic elementary schools next year through Academic Scholarships. Applications will be made available this spring and all students will be encouraged to apply.
  • Additional donations will be accepted for these scholarships but no specific fundraising efforts will be put toward funding more scholarships.
