School Anniversary

This Friday we're celebrating the 110th anniversary of our school and 125th anniversary of our parish. It's going to be a big party with ice cream and birthday cake, and there will also be lots of fun games! Everyone at school is really looking forward to it!

Partnership Grows

This morning we are skyping with our friends in Nsukka, and we here at St. Viator Elementary School in Chicago are excited to tell each other about our schools this year.

Joint Meeting on Nsukka Blog Spot set for Wednesday, September 18th at 7:30 AM at St. Viator School

Members of the joint education committee subgroup for web presence are meeting on Wednesday, September 18th at 7:30 AM to talk about how students in the Diocese of Nsukka and in the Archdiocese of Chicago can become "pen pals" in this age of "instant" communication. Educational leaders both in Nsukka and Chicago will meet over Skype to talk about how this blogspot might be utilized to allow students the opportunity to more easily (and instantly) connect to each other and enrich their learning.

At this meeting, Educational leaders will learn how to utilize the blogspot and will discuss how to safe guard students in their use of this form of communication.

Prior to the meeting, each member will attempt to post a "blog" entry in order to come to the meeting with a sense of the work that lies ahead and how students will learn new communication skills.

If you are interested in having your school join in this exciting process, please contact Carol at crfendt@hotmail.com or join us at St. Viator School, 4140 W Addison Street.
