Father's Club Service Project at Northern Illinois Food Bank

Please join us on Tuesday, April 28th from 6-8:30PM at the Northern Illinois Food Bank for our final serve of the year. A core value we have at St. Francis is to live out the gospel and serve those that are the "least of these" as Jesus calls us to do. The NIFB serves over 70,000 people each week and over 590,000 people per year! In Northern Illinois, 1 out of 5 children face hunger and need assistance. NIFB has a major need to fill volunteer slots on Tuesday nights and we are committing to fill the slot for 50 volunteers. Hope to see you there!


To sign up, contact Mark Petersen at

Kaplan is offering a free PSAT practice test on Saturday, May 9, from 10:00 AM to 1:15 PM, at the College of DuPage, Elmhurst College, North Central College, or online. To register, go to:

Senior Parents!

Senior Parents: Please do not throw out your senior student's scholarship award information!  On Monday, April 27, Mrs. Rigney and Mr. Lindley will ask all seniors to complete a survey listing details of their scholarship awards for all colleges, even if the student is not accepting the award.  The survey will ask for the following: Name of the Scholarship, Organization or College offering the award, the dollar amount of the scholarship, and if the scholarship is renewable or a one- time award.  On 4/27 the student should bring their scholarship award letters to school or bring a complete list of all scholarship awards so their survey will be accurate.
