Happy Easter!

On Sunday, Christians all over the world celebrated life and the joy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Easter remains a source of great joy and hope - hope of eternal life for all Christians.

This Easter was certainly different from anything we have experienced in our lifetime. Quite possibly like you, this year, we had a family prayer service via Zoom, which included the readings of the day, music, prayer intentions, gratitude moments, and more.

The Coronavirus, stay-at-home orders from our Governor, social distancing, and incessant hand-washing have certainly impacted our daily lives. Despite all, the resurrection of Jesus reminds us day after day -- and in a particular way this Easter, that no matter how dark it is, there is light -- the light of Christ -- is always more powerful than darkness.

No matter how challenging or difficult this time is in our world, there is love -- the love of Christ -- that fills us with new life.

Happy Easter!

Mrs. Tracy Brunelle, Principal

Las Vegas Fly-Over

Out of the mouths of our babes...

We want to thank all the frontliners including my mom who works as a community pharmacist and to all the pharmacy staff. They are the front line in the fight against the covid-19. Community Pharmacists are one of the first point of contact between the patients and the health care system so they play in an important role in the local communities. As all the other front line health care providers they need to be protected of the high risks of being exposed to the virus.

So we continue to pray to our mom and her co workers that they would be vaccinated by the precious blood of Jesus Christ and no virus can harm them. Thank you mom for working above and beyond. We are proud of you and greatly appreciate all you do.

Bono & Heart Opulencia

We say thank you to all of our heroes during this challenging time, including healthcare workers, civil service, delivery folks, bank workers, pharmacy, grocery workers, mail carriers, utility workers, factory workers, journalists, military personnel, first responders. Thank you to everyone who is working to keep things going!

Final 2019-20 Statements

We apologize for the delay in providing final statements.

When we received word last month that we would be temporarily closing to prevent further spread of the Coronavirus, our primary focus was on our students and families to insure that we had a plan approved and executed for the continuation of learning. Now that we are settled into that routine, we began to work on credits to accounts for April lunches not eaten, class trips not taken, etc. Here is a recap:

April Hot Lunch

March vendors were prepaid and we do not anticipate refund, although, we are still trying to sort out. April Hot Lunch will be credited to your account in the amount paid.

Class Trips Not Taken

1st Grade Discovery Museum, 3rd Grade Clark County Museum, 4th Grade Red Rock, 5A Courthouse, 7th Grade BGHS. $25 for each trip not taken will be credited back to your account.

8th Grade Graduation Brunch

We are missing valuable preparation time and do not feel that we will be comfortable meeting in large groups in tight quarters. Thus, it is with a heavy heart that we have elected to cancel this year's Graduation Brunch. We are crediting $125 of the Graduation fee set aside for this venue. We have all other materials in place for Graduation and we are evaluating future dates. Stay tuned.

ACH/Credit Card transactions have been held pending final statements. Final statements should be sent home at the end of this week, early next week. All late fees for March until the end of the school year have been waived. Please contact Mrs. Renee Alex at or Mrs. Tracy Brunelle at with any questions or concerns.
