Assistant Principal's Letter

Information For All SPC Families Regarding The 2018-2019 School Year Re-Registration and the Illinois New Tax Credit Scholarship Program 


Christmas treeThe Home and School Association is pleased to sponsor the Christmas Faculty Gift Fund. This is a convenient way for parents to give Christmas gifts to all of their children’s teachers and the staff at our school. The SPC teachers and staff truly appreciate this gift fund! Please click here for details. 




Christmas is coming! T.R.I.P. can help you take care of some of your shopping while saving you money in the process! We will be in the UGC tomorrow morning between 8:00 - 9:00 a.m!

Gift cards make great gifts! Purchase them through the St. Paul of the Cross Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (T.R.I.P.) Service. TRIP is a fundraiser that gives participating families the opportunity to earn tuition credit and also raise funds for our school. Click here for more information.

“By just by using TRIP for groceries at the Jewel we earn over $400 a year off of our tuition. I have a reloadable card that I fill on my smartphone before I shop, usually in the parking lot. The reloadable card can be used all year round. Most of the grocery stores have reloadable cards. In addition, we purchase gift cards for kids’ birthday parties and the Parish Giving Tree at Christmas. It's very easy and convenient.” ~ Missy Meyer, SPC Parent

Stop by the TRIP table in the UGC on Friday mornings in the UGC between 8:00-9:00 a.m. We will have cards for purchase (cash or check) that can be taken home with you! Buy cards for your holiday shopping or to give as gifts!
