Fall Break!

Fall Break continues Monday, Oct. 18th. We wish all our students and their families a safe and relaxing break! We will see you back at school on Tuesday!

Report Cards

Report cards went home this past Thursday for K-8th. If you did not receive your child’s report card, please check your FACTS account. You may have a report card hold due to an outstanding balance OR incorrect email address entered in your family info.

Picture Retakes

Picture retakes are Wednesday, October 20th. If your student needs a retake, please return the original photos in their envelope on picture retake day.

For those getting retakes…Students should be in uniform or dressy attire like they would wear for a weekend mass. Please follow the free dress day rules, but take it up a notch style-wise. No athletic attire.

All other K-8 students should be in their normal school uniform.

Safe & Sacred Curriculum

Sometime during the weeks of October 18 - 29, during your child’s regular religious education time, the Safe and Sacred curriculum will be taught. The aim of this program is to teach children how to be safe, protect themselves, and communicate any potential danger. In the Church’s desire to help keep your children safe, the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City requires that all children and young people participating in religious education in any parish or Catholic school in the Archdiocese, receive this instruction. Please be on the lookout for an email going home this week with more detailed information. If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to review the curriculum, please contact Mrs. Ison at
