Getting ready to celebrate the many blessings of our Catholic School Community!
And just like that, the last full week of January is upon us… Catholic Schools Week 2019 ! We will have numerous opportunities to celebrate our school next week, so please hang your schedule in a prominent spot in your home, so that preparations can be made for daily dress code specifications and accessories. Parents are certainly welcome to join us for any and all of the scheduled assemblies and special events during the week. A few favorites worth mentioning are our opening assembly , our Patriotic Assembly , and of course our Faculty/Parents vs. Students Basketball Game … all crowd pleasers! 

To kick off our week of faith filled fun, we are asking that students attend Holy Mass this weekend in uniform (at whichever parish they attend) in order to demonstrate our school spirit and pride! Students who participate in the CSW kickoff will receive a Spirit Wear Pass, so please follow the directions below! Also, this Sunday, our school doors will open wide to welcome any new potential families into the fold!  Families will be able to express interest in “reserving a seat” in one of our classrooms, however, their registration will not be completed until our existing families have had the opportunity to reregister their child(ren) during CSW.

Thanks so much for your continued support of our wonderful school!

By now we hope you have accessed your ParentsWeb account--our new online parent portal. Please follow the instructions in the email sent to you last week and contact the school if you have any issues
as this was the first step towards online re-enrollment.

The re-enrollment process for current families for the 2019-2020 school year will be activated within ParentsWeb this weekend, and you will receive a separate email alerting you to that. You will have until Feb 1st to complete the online process before we begin filling slots from new applicants who will visit our school during Catholic School's Week. Be sure to secure your spot by Feb 1st .

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we roll out this new process for the first time.
