We participate in Ohio's Step up to Quality rating system. Every other year we have an in-person, 2-day evaluation complete with teacher observations, interviews, building inspection and much more.

We were evaluated in February and I am pleased to report that have maintained our 5 stars and received our highest score ever!

A huge thank you to our faculty and staff! Our teachers are committed, hard-working and dedicated. I am honored to work with them daily.

A special thanks to Ms. Huber. So much of what we do has to be documented, gathered and organized. Without her dedication and assistance I would be lost!

If you get a chance, thank a teacher today!

Graduation/Moving up

In order to safely accommodate those who wish to attend, we will have separate mini-graduation programs for each class. Students will sing 2-3 songs, receive certificates, take pictures and dismiss from the ceremony. Each program will last approximately 15 minutes with an additional 15 minutes to socialize with other families, say goodbye to teachers and friends. We ask that you refrain from having personal parties/celebrations on the property/parking lot and reserve large gift giving for home. You certainly may bring your child balloons, flowers or small gift bag if you choose!

There will be balloons set up at the prayer garden if you wish to take additional photos.

  • Events will be held in the front of the school on the grassy area.
  • Students will assemble on the steps.
  • Please bring your own lawn chair or blankets for the grass
  • Please remain in your spaces as we dismiss students so that we can ensure that children make is safely from the stairs to you!
