From the Principal

Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.

Psalm 24

Hello Everyone,

I hope you enjoyed the long weekend!

Please join us for our CSW Family Mass at 9:30 am. on Sunday, January 29. Students who attend the family mass in uniform will qualify for a dress down day if they sign the sheet in the church foyer. Our Open House will follow the conclusion of the mass.The CSW Schedule is attached here.

If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the new playground on the west side of the building.  Installation occurred much quicker than we planned due to the moderate weather.

Have a great week!

Ms. Booth
