Happy Tuesday!
 Today we celebrate our students. We are so blessed that you have chosen to share your children with us. THANK YOU for the gift of partnering with you to help your child grow not only in academics or socially, but as a future SAINT. 

As Pope Benedict said, “A good school provides a rounded education for the whole person. And a good Catholic school, over and above this, should help all its students to become saints.
We strive everyday to bring this mission to life.
