Please turn in your resume to the school office if interested ​in applying for this position.

Thank You!

Thank you for ALL the volunteers that helped make the K-3 Valentine Bingo a success! Thank you teachers, substitute teachers, parents, front office, maintenance and cafeteria staff and anyone else we forgot. We couldn't have done it without you!

Tips for at Home Technology

So many parents ask what can I use at home to filter my kids' devices. We filter our ipads through a proxy but what about those phones, tablets, ipads and computers that your students are using while connected to your home wireless. I may have a solution for your home that won't require you to be a technical genius. The best part is (for me anyway) is it is free for a month to try. $7.99 per month after that. They have amazing technical support and they give me no kickbacks for mentioning this to you. I just want to pass along the ability to see what your children are doing, to use it as a tool to teach them good technology habits early and to control them as you wish.

Catholic Schools Week Service Projects

Here are a couple of 1st grade "helping" pack the boxes for our service project. We collected items for care packages to send to The Sisters of Providence at St. Mary of the Woods and to the men at Bishop Brute Simenary College. The children also made cards, notes and pictures to include in the packages.

The 2nd Grade service project was focused on the family. They prayed a decade of the rosary for each grade's family.

Following are some pictures of these service projects.
