We are making some adjustments to this day to ensure the health and safety of our students, and we need YOUR help! To make this event work well and run smoothly, we will need a lot of volunteers.

The Ravine Movie - Showing at B&B Theater in Liberty!
Are you ready to explore and question your own views on faith, hope, forgiveness and the afterlife?
On a typical weekday morning in a peaceful suburb of Akron, Ohio, the town awakens to discover that Rachel Turner and her son, Evan have been brutally murdered during the night. A short while later, Danny Turner is found in his car at the bottom of a ravine, after having taken his own life. Any explanation as to why a loving father and husband would suddenly commit a series of such heinous crimes has gone to the grave with the accused. The mystery only deepens as the details of the murders emerge, and evidence of premeditation as well as Danny’s hidden past are revealed.
Subsequently, Rachel’s closest friend, Carolyn Bianci, sinks into a deep depression, while her husband, Mitch, copes with his despair by attempting to uncover the facts of the crime. Eventually they encounter Joanna Larson, a fascinating woman who possesses extraordinary spiritual gifts. Through Joanna, the truth about the events that took place the night of the murders are unveiled. The answers Mitch and Carlolyn get are beyond their human understanding.
Inspired by true events, The Ravine is a story of faith, forgiveness, and most of all, the restoration of hope – even for the most seemingly unredeemable among us.
The Ravine is a feature film starring Eric Dane (Greys Anatomy), Teri Polo (Meet The Parents), Peter Facinelli (Twilight) and Leslie Uggams (Empire).

Covid -19 Policies and Procedures
In accordance with the Diocese of Kansas City St. Joseph, we will continue the Covid-19 polices and procedures that have been in place this school year. This means, our students will continue to wear masks appropriately throughout the day when working in close proximity to others. It also means, we will continue to socially distance in the classroom and lunchroom and will follow the same health procedures listed below.
These procedures have kept us in school and no one wants to risk that at this point in the year! We appreciate your support with this as we finish up this interesting school year.
