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!

Cheerleaders are very special people!  For football teams it is absolutely vital to have a strong and enthusiastic group of cheerleaders.  Cheerleaders affirm the team when it is doing well and encourages them to continue to put their heart in the game and not "drop the ball" to success.  When the team is doing poorly the cheerleaders continue to believe in them and to encourage them to fight hard and not give up. 

Cheerleaders are selfless givers and persons with deep hope and resilience and they bring out the best in the team they cheer on. 

We are all called to be cheerleaders for one another!  We are called to affirm others when they
do well and called to believe in and encourage others when things are not going well. 
Thank you Res/Notre Dame cheerleaders for showing us how to cheer others on!  Congratulations to the 25 young ladies from Resurrection who are part of the Junior Varsity Notre Dame Cheer and the Varsity Notre Dame Cheers:

Legacy Walk

As promised, today we will view the second new addition to the campus:  the "Brick Legacy Walk." This lovely path leads from front road of the school campus to the flag poll.  Thank you to Alisa Martorano for the months of hard work she put into planning the walk, working with donors on the details of their bricks, and finally working with Steve Sutter and his staff in planning and directing the layout of the bricks and the positioning of the memorial benches.  Congratulations Alisa, Steve and staff!

Besides being a beautiful feature on our campus the path is a wonderful way of recognizing and remembering people and raising additional funds for the school's scholarship and tuition assistance programs.

Please feel free to meander down the Legacy Walk and make sure to pause and rest on one of the lovely and comfortable benches!

On Sunday, September 16th there will be a blessing and dedication of this special new addition.

Res Cafe

Welcome back to Resurrection College Prep High School!  I hope everyone had a wonderful summer with a balance of relaxation and fun!  Those of us who were working at school during the summer preparing for the 2018-19 school year, want you to know that we really, really missed you!

While you were gone we made, what we think, are some exciting and fun changes in the school and on the campus!

First, there is a new look to the cafeteria!  The owners of a beautiful office building in Schaumburg made a donation of some lovely high tables and chairs which we have put in the cafeteria.  With the new look comes a new name, so now please note the sign over the door which reads: Res Cafe

Watch the blog over the next few days for the second new feature on campus!

May God bless and guide you throughout the coming year!

After a two and a half month break our faculty and staff returned for two days of inservice sessions, planning and time to prepare their classrooms.  At 11:20 a.m. we had Mass and a commissioning service.

We prayed in a special way for our students!  We hope that this will be an outstanding year in everyway and a year of great achievement and many blessings!
