Our school family is complete!
We've added a few more pics to the First Days album.
This week we opened our doors (and hearts) to the youngest members of our school family! Our preschoolers are adjusting quite well, and we are so pleased to have them here to complete our school family.

Thank you to those who attended our Welcome Back Parent Night, as I know our teachers were excited to meet you all and share their classroom happenings and expectations. If your schedule did not allow for you to attend, please stay well informed by frequently visiting our school website as well as teacher Google sites.

Please see the information below pertaining to the 9/11 Memorial Mass and Service taking place this Tuesday. We are hoping for a noticeable and notable school presence as we pray for the souls lost as a result of the tragic events that took place seventeen years ago.

Have a wonderful weekend and God bless,
~Mrs. Russo
