The Rotary Club of Hinsdale presented Emily McLeod and Mark Lasek with the Youth Merit Award at the Rotary Club meeting on February 20th. The Youth Merit Award is presented to selected high school and middle school students. Congratulations Emily and Mark on their achievements.
St. Isaac Jogues School is proud to host the first Diocese of Joliet Catholic School’s "Here I Am Lord" Vocations and Discipleship Workshop. The goal of this event is to inspire, engage, and energize the 7th and 8th grade students about their faith and expose the young people to the idea of a vocation. The conference will consist of praise and worship music, motivating talks, discussion groups, confessions, Eucharistic adoration and some friendly competition between schools regarding knowledge of our Catholic faith. We are hoping to have 30 religious communities as part of the vocations fair. Students will be able to visit with the various religious groups, ask questions, and have a better understanding of the different ways God calls us to live our vocation. On March 4th, eight hundred 7th and 8th graders from 16 diocesan schools will meet at SIJ for a day to help them recognize the need to have a relationship with Jesus before you can respond to His personal call for your life!

Our seventh grade students were introduced to the technology of 3D printing by Ridgeway Burns from the Hinsdale Library. In conjunction with Art and Social Studies classes, the students are learning about distinctively American architectural home styles, originating in the Colonial period. Students are currently designing Cape Cod style homes and with the use of a 3D printer are creating 3D models of their designs.
St. Isaac's students currently have their artwork displayed at the Hinsdale Library in the Youth Services Department. With the diverse offering of art projects at our school, we can proudly show our students’ craftsmanship, creativity and the academic connection that our Art reflects.
