Boys and Girls Club Virtual Learning at St. John's
Updated December 9, 2020
A month ago, the Boys and Girls Club of Dundee Township approached St. John's with the hopes of forming a partnership to help the students of Sunnyhill Elementary in Carpentersville. St. John's will be opening it's doors and allowing students to use our facilities beginning December 9. The three classrooms in the Education Wing have been converted to socially distanced learning spaces where students can participate in their remote learning via Zoom. Approximately 30 to 45 students will be present daily. Students will be receiving meals as well as additional support and access to WiFi as they continue to adapt to the challenges of distanced learning. We are thankful we have the opportunity to be a catalyst in our community and serve the students of Sunnyhill!

The Perry Partnership celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week, May 6 to 10, by providing the staff at Perry Elementary, Carpentersville, with several special treats.

Thursday, chair massage was available to relax and invigorate.
Friday, Noteable Events catering of Elgin provided a delicious lunch of salads, sandwiches, wraps, and cookies. We added a “Thank You Teachers” cake. Many thanks to St. John’s member Alan Pain, an employee of the catering firm, for their generosity in supplying the lunch.
