Thanks to our Call of the Heart donors, 30 chrome books have made their way to our upstairs classrooms!  Fifth grade was first class to utilize the devices, as their  Reading Street series is web based.
Very exciting!  

Some of our Class of 2016 at the first School Mass.

Welcome Back to School

 "Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14

It has been such a blessing to see all of your beautiful children return to school after a restful summer break. They are taller, tanner, and were somewhat tortured by the heat this week!
We look forward to a great year filling their minds and fostering their souls!  We have officially launched our school theme for the year, and have set high expectations for academic performance, especially in the area of mathematics. 

We are grateful to not only have our wonderful students back at school, but also their parents!  The help, support and encouragement that we receive from all of you is greatly appreciated! From assisting with the Back to School Book Fair to providing cold treats to get the kids through the heat, your efforts are appreciated!  The home/school connection is imperative to the success of your children, as well as our school!  Thank you for continuing to support our efforts!  

Have a wonderful long weekend
God bless!
