Dear St. Anastasia School Supporter,
As the year 2018 winds down, it gives us reason to look back and see the blessings we have received. Our students and their families continue to be a blessing to us at St. Anastasia, and with our enrollment being up 20% this year, we have more to be thankful for! Due to the new Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship program, we have been able to offer more outside tuition assistance to both new and existing families. We also continue to enhance the education of these students because or your gifts. Thank you for your continued support.
Our Annual Appeal has made it possible to update our math and social studies curriculums in the last year, provide longevity incentives and stipends for extra duties to our teachers who work tirelessly, tuition assistance scholarships, and also continue to provide other upgrades in the school. These programs and enhancements would not be possible without the generosity of donors like you.
In addition we continue to help families with extraordinary needs with our Echar una Mano program. This year we have six families who are recipients of scholarships. Your continued support of this program is very helpful to these families, and they are extremely grateful.
Click here for information from the Archdiocese of Chicago on the Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship program. If you are interested in making a donation and getting a credit on your Illinois income tax, this is a great option, as you can designate the donation to go specifically to St. Anastasia Catholic School.
If you have any questions, please contact Cathie Brolley in the parish office at 847-623-2875, ext. 240, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your commitment is important to the ongoing success of St. Anastasia. On behalf of the teachers and staff of St. Anastasia, warmest regards to you and your family during this blessed holiday season.
