This is my first year on the school board and my 17th year with at least one child at St. Cletus. As a parent of a college, high school and grammar school students, I hope to bring these perspectives to the board. Over the past 17 years, I have served a term on the school board, taught Confirmation for the Youth Ministry, served on the parish finance committee and taught the parish Pre-Cana class. The school has been a huge part of my life and that of my wife Tricia?s life. This is a school that we believe in and are proud members. We look forward to helping the school to grow and prosper.

My wife Karen and I have been parishioners at St. Cletus for the past 7 years. We have 3 boys in the school currently in 5th, 3rd and 2nd grade. This will be my 5th year on the school board. In addition to coaching the 7th grade boy?s basketball team, I have been involved in several of the fundraising efforts of the school. Most notably, Karen and I coordinated the Cardinal Royale Spring Fund Raiser in 2011. We were drawn to St. Cletus from a neighboring parish after seeing the results of the educational and faith filled guidance students from St. Cletus are so fortunate to receive. I look forward to making sure the school prospers and teachers continue to have the tools to provide the current group of Cardinals with the same results.

My husband Dan and I live in nearby Brookfield. We have been St. Cletus parishioners for 14 years, and have 2 children attending St. Cletus School. I have previously served as Vice President and President of the St. Cletus Family School Association (FSA) and have been a St. Cletus School Board member since 2010, serving as School Board Secretary since 2012. St. Cletus understands the importance of building a child?s faith and instilling a sense of service, as well as developing his or her intellect. I am proud to be a part of the St. Cletus community and enjoy volunteering my time with other talented, dedicated and energetic individuals as we build foundations for the future.

Bob Gray

My wife, Suzanne, and 4 sons, Steve '02, Chris '05, Mike '07, and Tommy '09 have been parishioners at St. Cletus for over 15 years. Having served on the School Board 2001-2003 and now in my second current term, as well as, being a member of the Board of Trustees at Nazareth Academy, I hope to use both my historical and current school board experience to help St. Cletus School fulfill its faithful mission. I have worked 30 years in the financial services industry but remain very active in the surrounding communities including: the annual Run The Ridge 5K Race in Burr Ridge, the Fathers Club at Nazareth Academy, and the Advisory Board at the UIC John Paul II Newman Center. Our entire family is proud to be a Cardinal, and we look forward to continuing our association and active involvement within the St. Cletus School and Parish.

I came to St. Cletus when my oldest child started kindergarten because of the sense of community it provided. Hailing from the South Side of Chicago, I grew up going to Catholic schools and wanted the same for my children. To this day, I love seeing my two sons and my daughter dressed in their school uniforms. Lunch supervisor, field trip chaperone, homeroom mom, picnic volunteer--I?ve done it all. But as a freelance editor and writer, this year I wanted to contribute to the board by using my writing and editing skills to highlight the accomplishments of St. Cletus. I am also co-chairing the silent auction committee for the spring auction. My husband and I have lived in LaGrange for nine years and look forward to seeing our children reach important milestones such as their First Holy Communion and Confirmation and to the future success of St. Cletus.

Ronald Skrip

My wife, Laura and I, along with our sixth and third grade children live in nearby Chicago. This is my first year on the St. Cletus School Board after being parishioners and a school family for the past nine years. We chose to enroll our children here at St. Cletus after an extensive search that included several closer Catholic schools because we knew after an initial walk through that the staff of St. Cletus was friendly, caring and committed to the education of their students. Spending time volunteering around the school and for lunch duty and Boy and Girl Scouts has enabled us to see our children and their classmates flourish. Laura and I have been involved in numerous fundraising events at St. Cletus including chairing a previous Oktoberfest and Shamrock Social. I am also the President of the newly formed St. Cletus Fathers Club which is being formed to strengthen the unity of the St. Cletus fathers.

Ann Foley

My family and I are fairly new additions to the St. Cletus family. We came from a local public school in search of a change. My children, who are now in 3rd grade, 2nd grade and kindergarten, were greeted with open arms by the teachers, staff, parents and children. The strong St. Cletus community reaches beyond the school and church walls. I have been involved on many levels with fundraisers and the Family School Association. As my background is in education, I was impressed with the full rounded education that our students receive. I look forward to working with the School Board to help our students achieve and succeed.

Rachel R. Luna

My husband Chuck and I live near Midway Airport and this is our first year as St. Cletus parishioners. We have two children starting 5th and 3rd grades this year. We transferred from another Catholic school located in Chicago. After attending last year?s open house, we realized this was the school for our children because of the curriculum, academic importance and family values that St. Cletus offers for the development of all children. This will be my first year on the St. Cletus School Board; however, I served 3 years as fundraiser coordinator (i.e. Football Mania, Mixed Bags, Worlds Finest Chocolate, etc.) for a previous school. We are excited about being part of the St. Cletus community and look forward to developing strong foundations for the future of the school and the children.
