Thank you to all the parents that help with supervision, library duty and classroom volunteers who create many class projects throughout the year. Your dedication inspires children to thrive and grow spiritually, emotionally and academically. The countless hours that parents spend putting on events like the Walkathon, First Communion and Confirmation show the strength of our community.
We would also like to thank parents for the time spent supporting your children at home with their learning. Since teachers are busy preparing to communicate student learning, they have noticed and commented on how much your children have grown over the past year.
From time to time, issues may arise that require more personalized attention. Please make an appointment to discuss these matters with the teacher. In addition, if there is a social issue between students, please inform the teacher so that he or she may try to find solutions between the children. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated staff that spends incalculable hours meeting the needs of the children. Not only is the academic growth of your children important to them, but so is their emotional and spiritual growth.
Thank you for your continued commitment to Catholic education. By working together, we have the potential to bring Christ to the world through the lives of your children.
