Angel Tree Volunteers


We are happy to announce that our Angel Tree is back to bring cheer to everyone this holiday season! Our Angel Tree program helps provide Christmas gifts, new clothing and daily necessities to those in need.


If you have completed your CMG Connect and fingerprinting and would like to volunteer, please click here. We sincerely thank each and every one of our volunteers for their selfless contributions of time.

THE RESULTS ARE IN!!!

Last month we invited all of our students and families to complete surveys and provide input for our school’s upcoming accreditation and Self Study. This protocol is designed to meet the needs of our accrediting body, the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA), while helping to assess the quality of our programs and their impact on student learning.


The results have now been tabulated and, as promised, we wish to share this information with all of you. 74% of our families responded to the Parent Survey (linked here), with 55% having enrolled their children for all three years of the school’s existence. We thank you for taking the time to provide your input and share your ideas, suggestions and recommendations for areas of growth. These are also areas we have recognized and have included within our long-range planning.


We are also sharing the results of our Student Surveys, as it is equally important to focus on their insights as well: Kindergarten to Grade 3 Survey results link, Fourth through Eighth Grade Survey results link.


We now look forward to the next steps toward accreditation and completing our Self Study. This process is invaluable to our school. It will validate our work and accomplishments while ensuring that our focus remains on excellence in teaching and learning.


Thank you for your belief in Catholic education and entrusting your children to our care!

  • Following through on promises - and keeping those promises;
  • Accepting responsibility for your mistakes - and learning from them;
  • Finding out what needs to be done - and following through;
  • Making good choices, always doing you very best;
  • We know you can do it!

Angel Tree

We are excited to share that our Angel Tree will be returning next week! Christmas trees will be placed at the school and church with tags for students and families to collect. These tags are asking for gifts that will be donated to a number of different organizations throughout the valley to help those in need this holiday season. We look forward to welcoming back this wonderful holiday tradition and supporting our community!
