From the Principal

We can do this, only three more school days until break! It feels like it has been a very long stretch waiting for Easter.

This weekend, our 8th-grade students will perform the Passion Play at all Masses. Mrs. Cindy Griffiths has been working Jacob Fada, David Griffith, Emma Basinski, Audrey Menner, Brooke Farley, Mackenzie King, Logan Eicher, Madison Perkins, and Brian Clark all winter preparing for this Palm Sunday performance of the Passion Play. We look forward to sharing this experience with you at Mass.

Many blessings,

Mrs. Molly Hibler
