Father Williams took our 8th graders for a little walk and a short visit to LaPalme Farm, a nature preserve overseen by the Buzzards Bay Coalition and located right behind the school. Access to the preserve is now made easier because of a new path cut through the brush on the edge of our property!
We will be kicking off Catholic Schools Week by attending Mass next weekend in uniform (for a small reward of course) and opening our school doors widely to welcome new potential families to our school community.
Our re registration process is in full swing, as many families have already secured their spots in our school family for the 2020-2021 school year. You will notice during the re-enrollment process that our tuition rate and Family Fundraising Obligation have increased for the 2020-2021 school year. This small increase will not only allow us to offer our teachers a small pay raise, but will also keep us more closely aligned with the other Catholic Schools in our area. Please make note of the financial aid opportunities made available to you, namely FACE and a parish subsidy. As always, please make known to us any financial concerns and we will do our best to help you in your situation.
