Peacemakers: Living MLK’s Dream

Each year, classmates choose students in their classroom who live out Doctor Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of non-violence. We are very proud of all our 2014 Peacemakers. Here is a sample of what the children say about their peers when nominating them for this award:

The recipient of the award for the Early Childhood Education program was Ian, about whom his classmates said: “Ian is quick to say ‘sorry’ when he makes a mistake. He gives hugs and always tries to be nice.”


Fourth grader Isabelle’s classmates said that she is “respectful and treats everybody equally. She not only brings peace to her classmates but also to teachers.”

Honors for St. Pius V School Staff

This year at Noche Mexicana we will celebrate the successes of two of the schools greatest assets: our principal, Nancy Nasko, and our administrative assistant, Abby Torres. Both received major awards this year recognizing their contributions to SPV School.

Abby received the Distinguished Service Award from the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Office of Catholic Schools. Abby is one of the reasons everything runs so smoothly in the school office. She does her job with grace, calm, and a wonderful sense of humor.

At Noche Mexicana, Mrs. Nasko will also be honored for receiving the Distinguished Principal Award from the National Association of Elementary School Principals last fall. Congratulations to Nancy and Abby!
