Greetings!

We had a great Catholic Schools Week! Thank you to all the parents who took the time out of their busy schedules to celebrate with us.
 
We would also like to thank Father Drummond for his spiritual guidance. He visited every classroom to bless each and every students’ throat in memory of St. Blaze the patron saint of throat illnesses. We are so blessed to have him as our pastor.
 
Interims went home last week. I hope you have gone through your child(ren)’s scores. I encourage you to get in touch with the teachers if you have questions or concerns. As always, I am available to address your concerns as well.

Blessings!

Mrs. Fernandez
