News and Notes

Dear Parents,

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of January and are at the end of the 2nd quarter, which marks halfway through the school year. It has been a wonderful first half of the year and I am looking forward to the rest!

Re-registration will open at the end of this month for all returning families to register for the 2023-2024 academic year. The Registration Incentive will once again be in place, allowing families to save $100 per child on the registration fee if they enroll before April 17, 2023.

Enrollment and tuition information is below.

Catholic Schools Week begins next week, please make sure to read the exciting details below! I can't wait to see the children in their daily Catholic Schools Week attire.

Have a great week,

Ms. Kazan
