Principal Letter, August 30, 2019

“The primary value of labor is the good of the human person, as it allows the person to be fully realized as such, with his attitudes and intellectual, creative and manual capacities. Therefore, it follows that labor has not only the economic objective of profit, but above all a purpose that regards man and his dignity.”  (Pope Francis addressing steelworkers and their families of Acciaierie di Terra, Italy)


Curriculum Nights

This year we will begin Curriculum Night on both September 12 and September 19 in the church at 6:30.  We will exit the church at 7:00 and return to school to start the in-class sessions.

SMART Tuition

Parents who have not yet signed yet for a SMART account will shortly receive a link via email to establish an account.  All parents must have a SMART account or have paid tuition in full.

Arrival and Dismissal

Please be vigilant when driving in the parking lot and on Division and Columbia Avenues.  When the busses are parked and are displaying their “stop” signs, motorists must stop.  Beyond the monetary consequences of receiving a ticket for passing the busses, the potential for real tragedy is always present!
