Gospel Value: Respect

Respecting the life and dignity of myself and each person in thought, word and action.

Dear Star Families and Friends,

Fall is knocking on our door, the leaves are changing, and cool weather is drawing near. Our students are well into their studies, and class routines are set. Our teachers are eager to help their students succeed. Remember, communication between parents, students and teacher is an important key to success. Checking your child’s progress and making sure homework is complete is just one way that you can make this happen. Let’s keep our stars shining and make sure they stay on track.


Have a great weekend!

Baby Shower For Birth Choice

This month we started our service project for the whole school. The project is a Baby Shower for Birth Choice. This ministry gives support and help women who might need that extra support during their pregnancy and arrival of their newborn. Each class will be assigned an item to focus on and bring to school.

Pre-K3 and K4 - baby bottles

Kdg. and 1st– pacifiers

2nd-3rd– Diapers

4th-5th– onesies

6th-7th-8th– blankets

At the end of the month we will have a representative from Birth Choice collect the items and talk to our students about their ministry. Our students are excited and ready to get started.
