The celebration of Thanksgiving at many schools focuses on a meal shared by Native Americans and Pilgrims hundreds of years ago. Few students in northwest suburban Chicago are aware of 21st-century life on American Indian Reservations. Sixth grade students at Holy Family Catholic Academy met with one of the Inverness school’s alums, Jack Rosenwinkel, who provided a first-hand account of the culture, joys, and challenges of living on a reservation in southwestern South Dakota.

Here is HFCA's Thanksgiving Prayer for our friends and families. Happy Thanksgiving!
This past year Holy Family Catholic Academy (Inverness) middle school students won seven awards from outside organizations. The entire community recognized and applauded these hard working students who went above and beyond to create exemplary work. What is often assumed, but not always recognized is that behind these talented students are teachers who inspire, challenge, and encourage their students to excel. Recently, HFCA was delighted to announce that Middle School Teacher, Mrs. Eileen Paparone was publicly recognized as an outstanding educator. https://bit.ly/3vpkirf
