You are not alone! For many Saints Peter and Paul parents, their greatest concern is where their child will stay after school. Parents at Saints Peter and Paul school have a unique alternative to solve that problem – the school’s Extended Day Program. Extended Day offers a safe and secure environment for children in grades K – 8. For the students, after school time in the Extended Day Program is fun and educational. Extended Day provides gym/play time, homework time, a snack and a variety of enrichment activities each afternoon. The uniqueness of the program lies in the fact that it is a self-supporting program. Cost for the program is $20/day/child with a yearly registration fee of $25 per family. Acceptance into the program is on a first-come, first-served basis while offering a choice of daily/weekly or monthly registration.
There is a hot lunch program available every Monday and Friday. We offer a daily milk program. You can order these online at the school website.
Please report the absence by 8am by calling the main school number (630-355-0113) and listen for the prompt for the school absentee line.
There is a classroom teacher and an aide in kindergarten through 4th grade classes. There is also an aide who helps out in our Jr. High LA/Reading classes
