Quote of the Week:

  “Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good... Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.”‚Äč

The Totus Tuus Summer Catechetical Youth Program will be hosted by Visitation Parish, July 24-29.

 

Totus Tuus is a diocesan program whereby seminarians and college students travel throughout the summer to various parishes, leading week-long Vacation Bible schools.  A team of four seminarians and college students (male and female) will be coming to Visitation the week of July 24-29.

 

The program is open to children entering 1st-12th grade.  The grade 1-6 program takes place Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 2:30pm with a special mass each day at 11:15am, followed by lunch.   The grade 7-12 program takes place Sunday through Thursday from 7:00 to 9:00pm.

 

There will also be opportunities for 7th and 8th graders to help with the children's program, which is a good way to earn service hours.  The diocese requires that these teen helpers for the children's program also participate in the evening Totus Tuus youth program.

 

Information and registration forms for Totus Tuus are available on the parish website at:

Vis Math Club Excels in Year One!

Junior high math teacher, Mary Lou Vainisi, moderated an after-school math club for interested junior high students this past year. The club met weekly and engaged in a variety of math-related activities. In addition, the club participated in activities for a National organization called Mathcounts. Mathcounts was founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and CNA Foundation, a financial corporation based in Chicago.

  

The National Math Club sponsored by Mathcounts helps build confidence in students of all ability and interest levels by giving them the opportunity to engage in unique math activities in a relaxed, social setting.

 

Our math club achieved gold status in the Mathcounts National Math Club organization. Visitation was one of only 12 schools in Illinois and about 175 nationwide to achieve this highest status among all schools that have math clubs. Congratulations to all those who worked on the survey project that contributed to the award, as well as all math club members throughout the year participated in this after-school commitment.

Congratulations to State Science Fair Participants
Twelve students recently represented Visitation at the State Science Fair competition at Milliken University.  We are proud of these students for their great effort, level of learning and how well they represented Visitation!
