Queen of Peace High School Annual Report 2005 - 2006

Hi! My name is Nicole Paprocki, and just three years ago I was deciding what high school to attend. I looked forward to graduation from my grammar school and to time with my friends. Still, I worried about choosing the high school that best fit me. Looking back, I recognize that I made the best decision because I love my friends, my teachers, and the welcoming all-girls environment at Queen of Peace. I never imagined how much I would achieve in just three years. My main goals were to get good grades and make new friends. However, Peace is teaching me that I also have the potential to do so much more. My teachers have opened up amazing opportunities for me to discover who I am and to understand my purpose as a Christian. What I love most about Peace is that you can be anyone you want to be here. You can be a dancer, a chess player, a varsity softball player, the President of your class, and a straight-A student. You are challenged academically every day, and you learn so much about yourself and about life outside the classroom. Thank you so much for your help and support. Because of your contributions, my classmates and I have been able to attend Peace, learn the newest technology out there, and take part in the most rewarding leadership and service programs available. Thank you. Love and Peace, Nicole Paprocki '07

Dear Alumnae, Parents, and Friends of Peace,

Blessings on you during this Advent season. I take a great deal of comfort given the promises of change and renewal the season offers. Advent is a wonderful time of contemplation that offers us opportunities for focused reflection and prayer. We wait in hope-filled anticipation of the birth of Christ, the gift of new life, and the renewal of our relationships and commitments to our ministry, our families, and our communities. This is a "life-giving" time that opens our hearts and fills us with new hope and promises for future peace, future growth and future challenge. The Queen of Peace Community extends its heart-felt gratitude to you for your continuing support of our mission and ministry and your personal demonstration of the Dominican values of Partnership and Compassion. It is because of your generous commitment of time, energy, service, and resources that we have been able to create and maintain a rich, innovative, faithcentered, service orientated learning environment in which the young Women of Peace thrive. A new initiative has brought excitement to all vested in securing "new life" and future prosperity for our school. A Peace alumna, who wishes to remain anonymous, has opened her heart and given us a $100,000 matching gift challenge to move our technology plan ahead of schedule. Peace would be the first all-women, Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Chicago to create a dynamic, 21st century learning environment which would give every student, at all levels, 24/7 access to their own personal wireless computer. This will initiate dramatic change in the teaching and learning experience. As you read this, we are delighted to inform you that we did meet the match and have successfully garnered the $200,000 which is 50% of our $400,000 goal to make this happen in 2007, nine months from now! The Peace Community is excited for the future possibilities that this 1:1 Tech 4 Learning Initiative has created. This is a "life-giving" time and one alumna has made a huge difference by investing so generously in our future mission. I hope you experience the same sense of excitement and possibility for the growth of this community and elect to continue in our shared ministry; I encourage you to support this rich investment opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the Women of Peace. May we experience peace in our hearts, in our families, in our communities, and in our world.

Kathleen M. Hanlon, Ph.D., Chief Administrator


Much gratitude to our Board of Directors whose leadership and guidance make possible our mission of a Dominican education. Barbara Schindler Allelujka '70, Donald Biernacki, Julie Burke-Concannon (Chair) '80, Barbara Dannhausen O.P.*, Christine Dannhausen-Brun*, Kathryn Emmerson*, Sister Helen Glynn O.P., Trudi Goggin, Dr. Kathleen Hanlon, Tina Kuska '89, Sister Mark O'Loughlin O.P., Genevie Labuda-Prangle '82, Ellen Jordan Reidy '76, Honorable Jesse Reyes*, Patricia Sonnenschein '80, Sister Janet Welsh OP (*not in picture)

Dear Queen of Peace Community, The 2005-2006 school year was filled with difficulty as all of us who love and are committed to Queen of Peace struggled to resolve the confusion and hurt that accompanied the Board's decision to make administrative changes. The Sinsinawa Dominicans are grateful to all in the Peace community, board members, parents, administration, faculty and staff, and students for their commitment to reconciliation. Such a commitment to reconciliation is the foundation of the peace that has come to characterize students as Women of Peace and the community as a Community of Peace. Our prayer has been and continues to be for God's blessing on all that have been and will be part of such a grace-filled school community. Sincerely,

Sister Patricia Mulcahey, OP Chairperson, Queen of Peace, Inc.


Living the Values of Justice and Compassion

Queen of Peace High School is sponsored by the Sinsinawa Dominican Congregation. Founded in 1847 by Venerable Father Samuel Mazzuchelli, O.P., the congregation currently sponsors eleven institutions. Through sponsorship, the Sinsinawa Dominicans carry out their mission to preach and teach. Queen of Peace celebrates the Dominican values of truth, compassion, justice, community, and partnership. We live these values through speech and action, and we dedicate the 2006-2007 school year to justice and compassion. To understand just how Peace students put these values into action, take a moment to read how some devote themselves to a cause: The week of October 23, 2006 began National Red Ribbon week. Peace's Students Against Substance Abuse (SASA) demonstrated not only their pledge to remain drug free but also their commitment to help others see unavoidable truths and the need for justice. As part of the activities for National Red Ribbon Week, SASA sponsored bracelet and sucker sales. These items were laden with anti-drug messages. SASA moderator Michele Nowak noted that the bracelet sales were intended to serve as a demonstration of a student's pledge to live a drug-free life. Some of these proceeds were donated to Catholic Charities' substance abuse treatment programs. Perhaps the most powerful message came without words. On Thursday, October 26, select students remained quiet for the entire day. They did not speak in classes nor did they speak at lunch. They dressed completely in black and painted their faces white. This impact activity was intended to symbolize the deaths caused by alcohol-related crashes. Twelve students participated in order to show that every 31 minutes a life is lost. "Although it was uncomfortable and some people were shocked by my appearance, I knew I was doing and saying something important without speaking at all," explained frosh student Kristen O'Dwyer. The United States Congress first declared Red Ribbon Week in 1988 in honor of Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Enrique Camarena. Agent Camarena was kidnapped and killed in Mexico in 1985 when he uncovered a multi-billion dollar drug scam involving members of the Mexican government. The purpose of the


week was to increase awareness of the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, to educate people about the devastating effects of these substances, to remember those who have lost their lives to these substances, and to challenge everyone to lead drug-free lives. National Red Ribbon week is only one example of how our students demonstrate their commitment to truth, compassion, justice, community, and partnership. With your generous gifts, we have been able to provide the facilities, technologies, and services that enable our students to grow into strong-minded and, above all, better people. Whether it be through service projects, the opportunity to attend leadership programs, hosting special guest speakers that bring unique perspectives to our students, or expanding our student activities, know that your kindness and compassion is justly served.

Changing The World With Community Service

Peace's Environmental Task Force continues to visit the Chicago Portage Site monthly to clean up polluted forests, clear brush, and restore the biodiversity. Peace's Poverty and Hunger Task Force raised over $1,000 during Hunger Awareness Week this November. Proceeds were donated to the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Oxfam. Student Council kicked off its work with St. James Parish this November. All faculty, staff, and students were eager to continue helping those in need, especially during this holiday season. This marks the 33rd consecutive year that Peace has worked to provide a Christmas for St. James' families. Peace students make monthly visits to the Greater Chicago Food Depository to re-package food for various food pantries and shelters in the Chicagoland area.
