Good morning to all St. Edward Jaguar families,

A couple of things:

Our Spelling Bee will be held next Friday the 21st. Times TBA

Please check the OptionC email I sent to everyone yesterday. I attached the latest CDC guidelines as it relates to COVID, quarantining and returning to school.

I called a number of families yesterday with information about the Empower Illinois program. I left messages with several of you. At your convenience please call me for an explanation of the program. This program has great benefits for everyone at St. Edward. Those of you that tried to apply last night may continue to apply. I looked at the site this morning and it is open.

We were informed late yesterday afternoon that IVC has an early release tomorrow, Friday the 14th. So……there is no bus service after school tomorrow. I apologize for the late notice. There is bus service in the morning. There is no school on Monday, January 17th. It is Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Now the big news; Our application to present at the National Catholic Education Association national conference was accepted. Fr. Matt and I will be attending the conference in April. Very exciting. I’ll keep you posted. The topic of our presentation is the successful transition to a Microschool (Multiage) classroom setting.


everyone. This is a big honor for our St. Edward Parish, School and families.

Take care.and God Bless!
