Act of Spiritual Communion
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.

From the Principal's Desk
Dear Parents and Teachers,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. These past few months, we have experienced e-learning, the COVID-19 Pandemic, & protests in many of our cities, states, and country. It has been tough times, but we will get through it.
SCB is a wonderful place for your child to learn and grow. We have strived for the past 90 years to provide a quality education that inspires our families to send their children to our school. I want to personally say “thank you” to all our returning families and “welcome” to all our new families. SCB takes pride in our collaboration between our parents and teachers, our high academic and behavioral standards for our students, and maintain and grow our Catholic identity. SCB is that special place in the very short time I have been here that promotes those great ideals that come to mind.
Our Catholic identity is our mission to provide a Christ-centered academic environment that empowers our students to serve God and each other. We take it very seriously and are committed to nurturing our Catholic faith through prayer, Eucharist, sacraments, and service to others. It is interwoven throughout our day-not in isolation.
Our academic excellence emphasizes education of the whole child. Our school has received recognition from the Diocese of Rockford and the Illinois State Board of Education. Our teachers are highly qualified and have taught for an average of 10 years at SCB. They regularly attend staff development in-services and workshops to keep them up to date in the latest trends in education.
Our students have enjoyed academic success at SCB, high school, and the university level. Our students are leaders in academics and leadership roles. In the next few years, our curriculum will be reviewed regularly on a rotating schedule. It is a thorough, rigorous curriculum concentrating on phonics, reading, comprehension, writing, and math. SCB emphasizes a note taking critical thinking application and study skills. This year we are truly blessed to have technology, physical education, art, and music.
Finally, I promise as your principal that all students are welcome, cared for, nurtured, and loved. We are the SCB Family as we enter our 91st year of education in Hampshire. Our hope at SCB is to have all our students reach their full potential-physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. Any questions, please don’t hesitate to call or email me. In closing, I want to personally “thank you” with a humbled heart that you have chosen SCB for your child’s Catholic education.
