St. Alphonsus Families!
PSA would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who supported our school during the
Fun Run. Thanks to you, we not only met our goal of raising $5,000, but we exceeded it. Our portion of the pledged amount is almost $7,000. Based on this amount, Boosterthon will donate 21 meals to a local food pantry to help families in need. We couldn’t have done it without you!
We hope that everyone had fun. We wanted to highlight some of the prizes that all of our
students earned during the pledge. We had freeze pops, crazy hat or sports cap day, dance party, bonus recess and munchkins (or allergy approved treat).
On Friday, June 2nd, we will have a dress down day.
Our grand prize for the school for reaching $5,000 was a movie and ice cream treat (or gluten free dairy free Trader Joe’s marshmallow treat).
On Thursday, June 1st, Preschool and Kindergarten will get their treat
On Friday, June 2nd, 1st-8th grade will get their treat
In addition to running the event, Boosterthon provided prizes to students based on the level of pledges received. As you know, PSA had additional prizes for the top three students with the most pledges. We would like to recognize
Ethan Suerth for raising $765
Jillian Franz for raising $645
Michael Franz for raising $555
What will we do with the money raised? As soon as the pledges are collected, we will place an order for the bottle filling water fountains. Once our parking lot is resurfaced, we will paint hop scotch, four square and basketball free throw lines as well as make other small improvements to our recess areas. The remaining amount will be earmarked toward the purchase of new text books in the upcoming year.
In order to truly make it a successful event, we need to collect all the pledges by Wednesday, May 31st. Check funrun.com for payment options. Checks can be made payable to
St. Alphonsus PSA.
Thank you again for generously supporting St. Alphonsus!

Big hearted Coaches
No one is too small to play!
Students at Saint Alphonsus Liguori constantly give back to the community. However, service this time meant cutting off their hair! Six students and one teacher donated 86 inches of hair to help children with cancer! Charge On!
Congratulations to the cast and crew of Disney's The Little Mermaid, Jr. The performances were a great success! You all did a fantastic job to nearly sell out crowds!
WAY TO GO CHARGERS!
The Charger track and field team completed both its conference and sectional meets this last weekend. At varsity conference, for the boys Ben Duenez scored in both the 100 and 200 meter dashes. The varsity girls were led by Jeneva Mercado and Destiny Marchetti in the shot put, as well as a 6th place finish for the team of Destiny, Lily Baroud, Julia Konrath, and Sam Sebastian in the 4 by 100 relay.
Sammi Sok was crowned conference champion in the long jump for the JV girls, with the relay team of Sammi, Katherine Vargas, Chloe Krier and Gaby Gross medaling as well. The JV boys took home the team trophy for third overall, with AJ Marchetti, Max Karkut, Ryan Swann all medaling individually while the relay teams of Max, Ryan, AJ, Joseph Baroud and Nick Kiefer also scored.
From the sectional meet -- we are proud to say Ben Duenez and Olivia Swann each won in the pole vault and will be representing Saint Alphonsus at the Illinois state track meet this Friday! Chase Bradford, Christian Werba, and Max Karkut also scored for the boys team, while Destiny Marchetti, Sammi Sok, Jeneva Mercado, Nicole Mercado, and Julia Konrath all scored for the girls.
Congratulations and thanks to all the track team on a great job this season, and good luck to Ben and Olivia on Friday at state!
We are so proud of the students who qualified to attend the State Science Fair this past weekend. We are proud to announce the following:
Congratulations to Amelia Maglio and Anne Nguyen for attaining Bronze medals at the Science Fair.
And Congratulations to Brenna Drabik and Mia Pistone for winning Gold medals!
This is truly a great achievement by our students!
It is with great pride that we announce that four of our 8th graders have qualified for exceptional programs going into high school. Two of the students have qualified for the Father Louis Querbes Scholars Program at Saint Viator High School. Brenna Drabik and Keely McClellan are the young ladies that have reached this very prestigious level. Destiny Marchetti and Keya Soni have been accepted into the AVID program as they journey into Wheeling High School.
Querbes Scholars are students of exceptional academic promise and are highly motivated. To qualify, they need to be in the top 7 percent nationally on the Saint Viator Entrance Exam, maintain a minimum of 97% GPA to remain in the program, and take 3-4 honors classes each year among other things.
The AVID program at Wheeling High School's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. These young ladies will be taking high school classes that will be accepted as college credits.
Saint Alphonsus Liguori has 12 graduates this year and to have 4 of them, (33%) of them, to reach these goals is exceptional. As a community, we are so very proud of them. WAY TO GO, GIRLS!!! #chargeon #catholicschool #stalchargers
