Our middle school students had a marvelous time in Atlanta. By all reports, their behavior was outstanding.
Grandparents and Special Friends Day

We had a wonderful time at Grandparents Day! We started with a prayer service and a talk from Mrs. Gomez and Fr. Paul. Our guests received a "sneak peak" of the evening's Spring Sing. Afterwards, the students enjoyed giving a tour of the school with their Grandparents and special friends. The morning culminated in a relaxing brunch.

Thank you to all the Grandparents and special friends who visited with us!
