St. Elizabeth Newsletter

From the Principal's Desk


Welcome Back! I hope your holiday was enjoyable and that you are looking forward to a rewarding 2016. Thanks to our dedicated staff, students and parents, the spirit of giving was alive and well at St. Elizabeth in preparation for Christmas. Many lives were made a little better as the Catholic virtue of humility was demonstrated in so many ways.


As you may have noticed, our School has implemented a new safety measure located at the front entrance. In our ongoing efforts to maintain a safe learning and working environment, the front doors of the school will be locked between the hours of drop-off & pick-up. If you are visiting the school after 9:05 a.m., please use the door bell to the left of the front doors to gain access to the school. PLEASE NOTE: we have never had a safety issue. However, because of where the office is situated, it has been determined that this is the best method for the safety of our school.

Catholic Virtue for January: Courage "Be strong and tke heart, all you who hope in the LORD." - Psalm 31-24

Our Advent mass was well attended by families. A special thank you to everyone who made this gathering such a meaningful celebration.

Bullying Prevention Tip Ignore the bully. Don't Respond. Walk Away. Talk to an Adult.
