Welcome to Little Flower School
At Little Flower Catholic School, we are dedicated to providing a pre-school 3 through 8th grade Catholic Education in a faith-centered environment. We believe working together, parents and faculty promote the teaching of Christian values, spiritual growth, the total development of each child, and academic excellence. We endeavor to prepare students for the commitment to their Catholic Faith, responsible citizenship, and future academic success.

Welcome, Mr. Josh Ebener

Little Flower Catholic School has a new principal. After a survey to determine the qualities most needed, the search committee selected Mr Josh Ebener to lead our school through this upcoming academic year. Mr Ebener comes to us through the public school system and was highly recommended.

Josh Ebener is a graduate of St. Bede Academy in Peru, IL and the University of Illinois, Champaign. He has a masters' degree in counseling and an administrative certificate from UIS. Josh came to this area with his first teaching job at Glenwood High School in Chatham (6 years) and he also taught at Springfield High School (13 years). After a variety of administrative jobs, Josh retired in June, 2014.

Josh and his wife, Shelley, have lived in Chatham for the past 34 years. Shelley taught at Little Flower School for a few years in the 1980s and she presently teaches at Chatham elementary. Josh and Shelley are the proud parents of two sons; Nick who lives in Broomfield, CO where he sells houses, and Luke, who lives in Davenport, IA where he is a youth minister.

Annual Fund Campaign
The Annual Fund "makes things happen" within our school building! Each year, we like to add something extra, or special, to enrich the education our students receive. In the past, this Fund has helped provide new textbooks, Promethean ActivBoards for all grade levels, the automation of daily Library operations, and new Bleachers in the gym! The focus of the 2015-2016 campaign is technology for our classrooms.
