Remembering the Past and Looking Forward to Our Future
By now everyone has noticed the demolition of the former convent on our school property. We realize that the tear-down is bittersweet for many who recall the beauty of the building and the religious sisters who resided there. We look forward to using the foundation that the sisters built for us in their time in the convent to continue to build and develop our new campus.
Your support of this beautiful transformation is greatly appreciated!
Upon our return to school in January, we will begin the reregistration process for our current families. Open enrollment will begin during Catholic Schools Week, and we highly encourage securing your child(ren)'s spot prior to our Open House.

More information to follow in the new year, as well as a new incentive for securing student enrollment , as we look to our future in the 2020-2021 school year!
With the Christmas craze, there will be no Extended Care statements in Friday folders this week!
We will catch up in the new year!
The winter testing session for our MAP Growth assessment will take place as soon as we return to school! . The schedule will be as follows :
