Did you know?
The month of June is dedicated to The Sacred Heart of Jesus. Would you like to draw closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus? Try Eucharistic Adoration this month or pray aspirations (short prayers) which can be said anytime!

Sacred Heart of Jesus, protect our families.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, you are loved.

We are still in need of volunteers for this year's planning committee, specifically in the areas of Finance, Silent Auction, and Live Auction. Committee members do not have to be school families to help...planning is already underway so it would be great to fill these roles as soon as possible! Can you help? Email Andrea Wojcinski.

From the Desk of Ellen Knippel, Principal

Dear Parents,
The year is quickly coming to a close! We will be ending the school year on Thursday with Mass at 7:45am followed by donuts on the playground! You will be free to take you children home with you when they have said their good byes!

This time of year is always reflective for me as a Principal. I look back on the year and celebrate the successes, of which there were many! I also look back on the areas that we need to improve as a school and as individual teachers and administrator. The survey results have been tallied and your comments are being addressed. In your child's report card, there will be a letter highlighting specific topics and how we will be addressing them in the year ahead. I appreciate the positive nature of your comments - even when they voiced a concern. This tells me we ALL want what is best for our school and our children! I believe we have an excellent school in so many ways! We will continue to strive to make it better!

As we close the year, I take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for the support and work you have done this past year! To playground and lunch helpers, classroom volunteers and sick room helpers! Thank you to our school committee members - especially Kate Mitts as she finishes her term as chairperson - to our Athletic Committee - especially Darcy Dampier as she completes her term as chair! Finally, to our teachers and staff - especially Mrs. Ziegler! What would we do without her?!? We send those teachers leaving us Godspeed and many thanks!
 
Blessings on a safe and relaxing summer!

See you at Mass on Thursday!

Mrs. Ellen Knippel

We will end the school year with Mass at 7:45am and donuts to follow out on the back playground. Students should be sent to school as usual for attendance, no need for backpacks to be brought.

Students may leave with parents as they finish their treats and goodbyes!
