Queen of Martyrs Catholic Elementary School, in Evergreen Park, was the winner of the William Quinn & Sons Landscape Makeover Contest held for local Catholic schools.
Queen of Martyrs will receive $5,000 in landscaping and 300 square feet of paver bricks.
Queen of Martyrs Principal Kathleen Tomaszewski, her staff and many of the children created a video spoof of “It’s a Hard Knock Life–Queen of Martyrs Style!” with rewritten words and great acting. The video can be seen on the Queen of Martyrs Facebook page.
Each student also created a flower shaped like their hand and answered questions stating why the school should be chosen.
Queen of Martyrs offers half- and full-day preschool and kindergarten through eighth-grade faith-based education with options for extended day. Queen of Martyrs educates the whole child: mentally, physically and spiritually.
