Graduation Mass for VIII and XI grades

On May 8th, 2022, at the SSCM Parish in Lemont, a Holy Mass was held on the occasion of the graduation of the Polish School of St. John Paul II by students of the eighth and eleventh grades. Students with their families, teachers, and guests thanked God for the possibility of education in our Polish school.

We would like to thank the Principle Halina Szyrzyna, teachers, and all parents.

We are proud of high school graduates and graduates of the VIII Grade of the Polish School of St. John Paul II.

Prom 2022

Graduation students dressed in evening clothes had fun at the prom.

The prom was the only and unique fun,
which is remembered for a lifetime. It was a night full of fun, good humor,
delicious cuisine, and incredible creations.
And this ball will certainly be remembered
by the eleventh grade from our school.

May 3rd Parade

After a two-year break, the May 3rd Polish Parade has returned to the streets of Chicago. Students from our school dressed in Polish national colors proudly celebrated the 231st anniversary of the adoption of the May 3rd Constitution.

The Polish Constitution Day on May 3 commemorates the establishment of the first Polish law regulating the political system of the Republic of Poland. It was the second such document in Europe and the third in the world. The act changed the state system into a hereditary monarchy and led to the political equalization of townspeople and nobility. It also introduced state protection over peasants, which was supposed to mitigate the abuses in the levying of serfdom. Pursuant to the Constitution, there was a division of powers into legislative, executive, and judicial.
