'Value of Learning' Mantra for Catholic Schools Week, All Year


Byline: Joanmarie Wermes

Preparing students to be academically, morally and socially prepared for the future is the aim of St. Hubert Catholic School, whose leadership believes in the "value of learning."

O'Connor said eighth-graders, who are trying to earn service hours, will conduct tours. Acting as a hospitality team, members of the student council, school board members and teachers also will lead tours. The school offers a quality education to children in Hoffman Estates and Schaumburg, as well as youngsters in surrounding towns, including Hanover Park, Streamwood and Bartlett. …
