SADD-Students Against Destructive Decisions/Students Making Smart Choices

Moderator:  Mrs. Cate Majka (Ext. 289)

Students help to organize activities that educate and encourage all students to make good decisions. Club activities include: Red Ribbon Week, distracted driving awareness, safe driving and safe prom activities. Every year students participate in programs to help increase awareness of good decisions, including the IDOT’s Operation Safe Driving program, the International Save-a-Life Tour, our own Grimm Reaper day, Allstate’s X the Text program and AT&T’s It Can Wait program. In addition, SADD sponsors outreach programs including: the Walter Payton Toy drive and the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. New club members and ideas are always welcome.

  • 2014 Walter Payton Toy Drive: For the past five years, Saint Viator has won first place honors as the school that collected the most toys for underprivileged children in the State of Illinois. The toy collection is held November 1 through December 1 each year.
  • 2014 Celebrate My Drive Campaign: In October, Saint Viator participated State Farm’s Celebrate My Drive campaign to increase awareness of safe driving techniques.
  • 2014 American Cancer Society Relay for Life: In June, nearly 90 Saint Viator students, as well as faculty and staff, walked in Arlington Heights’ Relay for Life. Our team raised nearly $12,000 for cancer research and honored teachers and family members who have battled cancer at a midnight prayer service.

The Justice League is a social justice club that encourages students to be committed to the Viatorian value of caring for the least accounted for. The group incorporates service, awareness projects and reflection to develop student leaders with the desire to create positive social change. Throughout the past few years we have: traveled to the border of Mexico with Cristo Rey Saint Martin students to learn about immigration, sent interfaith delegates to the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City, visited with refugees at the Marie Joseph House of Hospitality in downtown Chicago and sponsored a SVHS student Trivia Night that raised enough money for a high school scholarship for a student from Dago, Kenya.
