Nominate a school hero!
We love our Catholic school employees. Teachers, principals and staff have worked tirelessly over the summer and this school year to bring quality in-person and remote learning to families during this unprecedented time.
To recognize the fantastic work our Catholic schools are doing, the Office of Catholic Schools is excited to announce the #SchoolHero program that will highlight the educators and staff who have gone above to ensure a safe and productive learning environment.
To complete this nomination form, you will need your nominee’s name, name of the school, professional title (if a teacher, the grade they teach) and why you’re nominating them for the #SuperHero program.
Please fill out the nomination here. We are seeking nominations from within our Catholic school communities - families, students, parishioners, alumni and school staff.
Nominate your #SchoolHero. We are very thankful for your participation in recognizing that our Catholic schools' employees are heroes.

Just as a reminder: Any Virtual students wishing to come back into the physical classroom must give us a 2 week notice of the move.
If your child is in the school building and would like to move to the virtual school, please let Mrs. Heil know and they may start immediately. Please refer to the above, that once that move is made, they must attend the virtual school for at least 2 weeks.
Any student that is home sick or awaiting test results for themself or a sibling and NOT enrolled in the virtual school may have access to the Zooms classes, but they are still considered absent.
