St. Joe's Open House Set for Sunday

Parents of children ages 2 through 13 are invited to 
attend an open house, kicking off Catholic Schools Week,  beginning at 10:30 a.m. 
Sunday, January 26 at St. Joseph School, 5641 South 73rd 
Avenue, Summit (a half block west of 57th and Harlem).

The school’s principal, teachers, alumni, parents and students will be on hand to welcome all prospective students and parents, offer tours and serve complimentary refreshments.

"St. Joseph School, with its smaller class sizes and strong track record of academic success, is something we are very proud of," stated Principal Lawrence Manetti. "Our school gives children an advantage that lasts a lifetime---a firm foundation that prepares boys and girls for the rigors of high school and beyond."

"St. Joseph School also provides a safe, friendly environment for our children to learn and grow," he added.

Information packets about the 2014-15 school year, including the Caritas Scholarship Program, will be available. Registration will be accepted.

"Catholic Schools Week this year begins our registration period. We will also be hosting a number of events in February for families interested in St. Joseph School," Principal Larry Manetti said.

St. Joseph School offers a Christ-centered education for boys and girls in kindergarten through eighth grade, as well as three- and four-year-old preschool.
Before- and after-school care are offered to accommodate the needs of working parents.

Children at the school have access to a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, including basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball, band, choir, chess club, Girl Scouts and more.

The school serves children and parents in St. Joseph Parish (which includes the northern section of Summit and the western section of Chicago’s Garfield Ridge neighborhood), and also welcomes children from a number of other areas, including suburban Bedford Park, Bridgeview, Justice, Willow Springs, Lyons and other communities.

For more information, phone Principal Lawrence Manetti at (708) 458-2927.
