Catholic Schools' WEek

You're Kind of a Big Deal!

I hope to see you at the 9:30 Mass on Sunday to kick-off Catholic Schools' Week. This is such a wonderful time of year as we celebrate who we are.


For our Valentine party, students may bring in their own container from home for collecting cards. If they choose to participate, please make sure everyone is included. They can get a class list from me or use the handbook.
