"If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts. Come, let us sing joyfully to the LORD."
Message from the President
Dear Parents,

I hope your students are as excited for school to begin as we are. This past week has been so busy getting ready for the start of school. Freshman and Parent Orientation were great. We are so excited to welcome all our new families. A big thank you to Nichol Bishop and her committee for a wonderful Back to School Bash.

Monday schedule begins at 7:55 am for our 7 th , 8 th and 9 th graders. Please remind them that they need to be in uniform as well. There is a 2:00 pm dismissal. Tuesday is a regular schedule for all students.

This year we continue our school theme with “Little Acts of Kindness”. It is important that our students continue to be aware of how important this is.

We focus this year academically on Math, Language Arts and Spirituality on Discipleship. We will also continue to focus on communication with our parents.

August 15 th is the Feast Day of the Assumption. Please feel free to join us in the gym at 10:20 am for Liturgy.

I look forward to another successful year with our students. Please let us know if there are questions or concerns. My door is always open. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.

God Bless,
Mrs. Hoy
