Weekly Update - January 26, 2018
Dear Parents,

I hope you had a great week! We have been busily planning for all of our Catholic Schools week activities. This is one time of the year that I really enjoy, even though sometimes the extra activities can be overwhelming. I enjoy it because it reminds me of why I have been in Catholic education for 28 years. That we can take time to celebrate our faith, school and students is a blessing. We have a sense of community in Catholic schools that is special. Our parents are involved and value the education their children are receiving. We are able to provide our students with more enrichment because there is less focus on testing and data. I know that you make a sacrifice to send your children here, I believe wholeheartedly that they will be better off for it. Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to seeing many of you throughout the upcoming week.

Have a blessed weekend!!
Mrs. Bogataj
