Spirit Week 2018

The week of September 23rd was filled with many activities that demonstrated the energy and pride behind Resurrection's Spirit Week!
Monday's Pep Rally was filled with fun and displays of talent from our cheer leaders, orchesis dancers, and our very own circus themes!

Tuesday started with the Seniors Annual Tailgate party in the school parking lot.  Later in the morning the entire school participated in the annual Walk-A-Thon.  This year the walk ended with the movie "The Greatest Showman."

Spreading kindness like confetti is not just a clever cliché at Resurrection but is a commitment to make a difference, to bring joy and respect into each others lives and to help begin a transformation in society where bullying is replaced by intentional and sincere kindness.

Last Friday, September 7th the entire school participated in an kindness program, that included an educational film, private reflection, sharing of thoughts and ideas and a personal commitment to specific acts of kindness.

One week later the Kindness Wall has been transformed from a pretty backdrop to a board with personal commitments.  Kindness is falling like confetti throughout the school. 

Thank you to the team of students and faculty who have taken on the leadership role for the Kindness Program.

Getting the Word Out

Resurrection College Prep High School is very fortunate to have two dynamic representatives working to "get the word out" to eight graders that "Res is the High School for them.  Christina Lampa and Kat Angelini are currently visiting area grade schools, scheduling eighth grader for shadow days and making sure there are plenty of Resurrection Lawn signs in the neighborhood.

Ms. Lampa and Ms. Angelini have a lot schools to cover and a lot of eighth grade girls and their parents to speak with, so they definitely appreciate any support you can give them.  If you know eighth grade girls from the grade school you attended, then make sure to stop and talk to them and tell them about your wonderful experience at Res! 

Kat Angelini and Christina Lampa

Revealing the Resurrection 2017 Volleyball Banner

The 2018 Resurrection Volleyball home opening game on August 29, 2018 was marked by honoring the Resurrection 2017 Volleyball team who made the school's first appearance for a State title in November, 2017.  The Resurrection 2017 Bandits Volleyball team took second place in the IHSA 3A Girls Volleyball Finals at the Redbird Arena in Bloomington, Illinois and Resurrection honored the team with last night's reveal of the Resurrection 2017 Volleyball State Championship Runner-Up Banner.

At the 2018 home opening game, all members of the 2017 Resurrection Varsity team and their coaches were honored.  Team members included Kacie Bemis '18, Taylor Besch '18, Isabella Bongiorno '20, Caitlin Coughlin '20, Christina Gatta '19, Alexandria Kalamaris '18, Natalie McDermott '18, Madison McEnaney '18, Emily Nytko '19, Gabriella O'Hehir '19, Jordyn Sprunk '18, and Brittany Welch '18.  Resurrection graduates who were unable to attend the banner reveal were represented by their parents, many of whom live-streamed the event with their daughters who are away at college.

We are proud to mark the accomplishments of these amazing student-athletes and we wish the 2018 Volleyball team the best as they follow last year's legacy!

Special thank you to Kathleen Heneghan for the marvelous photography of the revealing of the banner!
