News & Information for Tiger Families
Letter from the Principal
It is hard to believe, but next week is the last week of the 3rd Quarter. Report cards will be sent home on March 24th. Please encourage your student(s) to continue working hard through this last week, and the rest of the school year!
Today, was the beginning of the students participating in the Stations of the Cross. Our 8th Graders did a wonderful job leading it, and our student body did such a great job participating. I am truly humbled by the reverence our students showed during the Stations of the Cross.
This coming Wednesday, March 15th, 2nd Grade will make their First Reconciliation. It is such an exciting time for the students and their families!
As always, we thank you for sharing your student with us. We appreciate your trust, support, and partnership.
