In 2016, Queen of the Rosary applied for a small scale solar school installation grant through Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation that would support the installation of a 1 kW photovoltaic (PV) system for the school. After being turned down initially, the school applied again in 2017 and learned in April that the school was approved for a $6,700.00 grant. In addition to the grant, a donor provided the 10% that the school needed to begin work on our educational photovoltaic project.

Criteria for the grant included the following:

  • be a school that provides continuous educational services to K-12 students
  • have taken steps to make the facility energy efficient
  • have a suitable site for installation and operation
  • co-fund 10%  of the system installation costs
  • hold a “Solarbration” and make a commitment to teach about solar energy in the classroom
  • commit to educating the community about solar and renewable energy
  • agree to implement online monitoring of system performance via the Illinois Solar School/Illinois Wind Schools website

Working with Earth Wind & Solar Energy LLC and Mr. Ellefson, a suitable site was located.  The installation took place on a sunny day that turned into a very wet and rainy evening. The 1 kW photovoltaic (PV) system is now located just above door 7, the kitchen door, and is close to our Outdoor Early Childhood Classroom.   Data Link: https://enlighten.enphaseenergy.com/public/systems/YhyQ1329198 Our school’s Solarbration is scheduled to take place in Spring 2018.

What an incredible day we had!   The Track-a-thon was absolutely wonderful.  Cougar pride was everywhere! 

Kudos to our top-notch planning committee : Mrs. Amy Boyle, Mrs. Cheri Cage, Mrs. Jennie Podgorski and  Mrs. Jamie Villagomez.  Many thanks to  school board members,  parent volunteers, teachers/staff, Fr. Fred,  those who were able to come out and cheer/support our students ( We even had a few moms out there running!), and to all who supported this fundraiser financially.  Without all of you this event would not have happened.

A special thanks to Mrs. Jan Podgorski who answered a 7:30 a.m. call  and came in a subbed today!  Only a retired QR teacher wouldn't be scared off by a Track-a-thon.

With the support and enthusiasm of so many, we exceeded our goal of raising $20,00.00.  As of 2:30 today, we are looking at over 26,000.00 in pledges!

If you couldn't make it out today,  you can see clips and photos on our Facebook page.

Our Philosophy

We, the school family of Queen of the Rosary, committed to the spiritual and moral development of each child, believe the parish school is an integral part of the Catholic Church community.

We emphasize academic excellence, while striving continually to integrate faith and knowledge.

We believe that the purpose of education is to encourage lifelong learning and active involvement in the Christian community.

We believe the education of children is the primary responsibility of parents; we recognize that the complete education of children requires the total involvement and commitment of students, teachers, and parents.

We recognize that children learn by different means and at different levels of development; we, therefore, implement a variety of instructional strategies, while maintaining that children learn best by being actively involved in the learning process.

We recognize and accept cultural differences while embracing our similarities of faith and school community.

Finally, Queen of the Rosary utilizes all resources within the school, the Archdiocese of Chicago, and the local community to provide a quality Catholic education.
