Dear SPC Families,

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! We are all so grateful for your kindness and generosity in showing your appreciation for our faculty and staff this week. We are blessed to partner with you in your child's education. We are truly blessed at St. Paul of the Cross with amazing teachers! Teaching in a Catholic school is a vocation, and our teachers answer the call to serve daily! At a recent Leadership Day, Cardinal Cupich spoke about the role of Catholic school educators with reference to a quote from St. Teresa of Avila:

"Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours."

Our teachers are truly the body of Christ on earth, and we are grateful for their service.

VIP DAY PARKING: Special Parking Instructions for VIP day Tomorrow, May 6th

Since we anticipate our parking lots to be very full tomorrow, we ask for a little help! If your child(ren)'s VIP can be dropped off, that would be extremely helpful.

The main parking lot is open; however, there is 8:30 mass along with a 10:00 and 12:00 funeral. There will be an area blocked off for the funeral parking. The small parking lot off of Ridge Terrace will be open for parking, along with street parking and the metered railroad track parking spaces. Please note that these are pay parking spots, and you will be ticketed if you do not pay.

We ask that you please be respectful of our neighbors at Ryan-Parke funeral home and FM Global across the street from the UGC. They do not allow visitors to park there on weekdays as their lots are open only for their employees. 

We know this might be a difficult situation, but we sincerely appreciate your help and cooperation.

VIP Day! (Very Important Person Day) Tomorrow, May 6th
We look forward to hosting VIP day tomorrow! Please note this is not Grandparents Day; students may choose any special person to come and share an activity together. For students inviting their grandparents, please inform them that this year's format is completely different than in years past. Please note the following:

  • Each student will be able to bring 1 VIP to school. 
  • VIPs will report to the classrooms at the assigned time for some refreshment and activity. The activities will only last about an hour.
  • It will be a full day of school; students will return to class after the VIP activities. 
  • Unfortunately, the 2nd floor of the EGC is not handicap accessible. This impacts K-2nd grade.

Final Schedule:  

8:15-9:00 Early Childhood Classroom Activity (preschool, PreK, Multiage, Kindergarten)

9:10-10:10 1st, 2nd in classrooms

10:20-11:20 3rd-4th and 5th in Gym for Bingo

Altar Serving Information from Mike Marrese
I am a long time parishioner of St. Paul of the Cross and have volunteered to assist Father Nick with the Altar Server Program.

 

If your son and/or daughter wishes to participate in this ministry, we ask that the attached application be filled out and returned to the rectory (parish office) ASAP. You can also scan and email me the completed application. Please make sure that the field pertaining to agreeing to the training is checked.

You can expect your son or daughter to serve starting this summer every month or two (this depends on the number of total servers we have). Also, your son or daughter will rotate through the entire mass schedule. For example, if your son or daughter is scheduled to serve at 7:30 am, the next time they are assigned, they will serve at 9:00 am, the next time after that at 10:30 am, etc. 

I make the schedule and will assist you with any requests to switch a date or a need for a substitute.

We have two (2) days of training that your son or daughter must attend. They are Monday, 5/16, 3:00-4:00pm and Monday, 5/23, 3:00-4:00pm. Both days are in the St. Paul of the Cross Church.

Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me by email or cell. Thank you so much for your cooperation.

God Bless,

Mike Marrese

Dear SPC Families,

Happy Easter! I pray you all had a wonderful Easter. This week we had many Easter egg hunts and an Alleluia parade. We often forget that Easter lasts 50 days, so let us continue to celebrate the joy of the Risen Christ!  

In the next 6 weeks of school, we are filling the days with many activities we have missed in the past 2 years...hold onto your hats. We have some field trips, VIP day, May Crowning, book fair, Daddy Daughter Dances, Mother Son Activities, and SPC Olympics, not to mention the events that celebrate our SPC Class of 2022. SPC is back in full swing!

Welcome Mr. Barry Garrett-New Director of Technology
Over Easter break, Mr. Joe Agostinelli left SPC for a different position. We welcome Mr. Garrett as our new Director of Technology. He comes to SPC as a parent of an SPC alum and many years in the corporate IT world. Welcome, Mr. Garrett! He can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Goose in Front of the EGC
Tiger the Goose
To add to the flurry of activity, we have a goose that seems to like to hang out in front of the EGC; I have named the goose "Tiger" since she has become a regular fixture on campus. We think that she has a nest somewhere. To be safe, please make sure the children do not approach Tiger, especially if she has a nest around.  

May Crowning May 18th
All students in grades 1-8 will attend May Crowning Mass at 1:30. Due to space considerations, only 2 guests of 2nd and 8th grade (2 only) are allowed to attend.

Dear SPC Families,

Thank you to the Week of the Young Child Committee for a week of fun for our early childhood! The committee members are Mrs. Hart, Mrs. Rabinak, Ms. Burke, Mrs. Sullivan, Mrs. Murphy, Mrs. Kusinski, Mrs.Sanfratello, Mrs.Dietz, Mrs. Kasprzyk, Mrs. Galvin, Ms. Xamplas, Mrs.Hader and Mrs. Scherer!

Early Dismissal Procedures-A Gentle Reminder

This is a gentle reminder that advance notice is required when you will be picking your child up for an early dismissal. Please email the teacher and the office staff ahead of time or call the office in the morning. It is very disruptive to the classroom teacher when no notice is given. The office staff may not always be able to take your call in a timely manner for the dismissal.
Only in an emergency situation should a parent call during the day to pick a child up early.

We are also seeing a number of forgotten items being dropped off, please try to limit those drop offs.

New Uniform Company

Per our earlier communication, we are changing the uniform supply company to Tommy Hilfiger. The uniform remains the same, and all items purchased from Lands' End will still be permitted. The Lands' End uniform website will be active until May 31, 2022. We anticipate the new Tommy Hilfiger site going live next week. Please look for a separate email blast with all the information. Beginning next school year, we will return to the normal school uniform. 

COVID - Please test your child if they have any symptoms

Please remember to test your child if they exhibit any signs before coming to school. We are seeing a slight rise in cases in the area, and I am concerned about the possibility of seeing a rise at SPC. I know we are also nearing allergy season, so symptoms look similar.
