A Note from the Principal
Congratulations to our second graders who celebrated their First Holy Communion this past Sunday! Although it was a bit cloudy that day, there was such joy inside the Church. It was so wonderful to see the families share in it as they approached the table of the Lord together.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of our moms, grandmothers, aunts, Godmothers, sisters, and other women in our lives who care for us and love us unconditionally!
Peace and blessings,
Diane Raguz, Principal

Mr. Benedictine Finalist-AJ Slemc
The title of Mr. Benedictine is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a graduating senior from Benedictine High School. The winner shows through his character, scholarship, athleticism, leadership, service, Christian ethics, and his school pride that he is the best that Benedictine has to offer. In order to be selected, a student must have shown academic and athletic accomplishments, must be in good standing with the faculty & staff, and must ultimately be chosen by his peers. Congratulations to AJ and to his parents, Tricia and Alex! We are #SPBproud of AJ and are cheering him on!

Kindergarten and anyone who would like to help is welcome to sign up for May/June.
This is a great way for you to interact with your child and his/her classmates during the school day! Recess Volunteers should arrive to school at 11:10 and check in at the office. Duties will include supervising students at recess, escorting the students to and from the school doors. Volunteers will be with one school staff member each day to help direct.
Remember that after your two volunteer time slots, you are done for the year, as each month is assigned to a different grade.
