Catholic, Independent Elementary Schools Serving Chicago's Children Since 1876


Faculty and Staff Appreciation

Sharing Our Heartfelt Gratitude


This year Parents of the Heart continues our tradition of celebrating Sacred Heart Schools’ faculty and staff during the holiday season.

We will once again be acknowledging all that they do from afar, surprising them with heartfelt gratitude – treats, gifts, and special wishes - over the week of December 6-10.

This initiative takes the place of individual gifts to teachers and ensures an equitable distribution of gratitude to everyone who contributes to making Sacred Heart such a special place. A cash donation is the preferred method of saying “thank you” to all the wonderful people who touch our children’s lives.

Click here to donate now. All gifts are due by December 1st, but by donating earlier you can help us plan a thoughtful and fun week.

For further details, please contact Co-Chairs: Nancy Aulis, Shannon Dorton, Debbie Kost, or Jill Fitzsimons.

Thank you for sharing your heartfelt gratitude!
