8th Grade Field Trip

This week, our eighth grade students attended YMCA Camp Surf in San Diego for their class trip. Students enjoyed fun, life-changing outdoor experiences that helped build their confidence through skill development. We are very grateful our students had this opportunity and for the memories that were made. This relationship bonding endeavor will be something that they remember for a lifetime.

Nurse Appreciation Week

Thank you Nurse Raelene for your commitment and dedication to the health and safety of our students and staff. We are truly blessed to be in your care and we are so grateful for your expertise as a health care provider. Good nurses take care of patients, great nurses take care of hearts. Thank you!

Blessings to Father John

The students and staff prayed for Father John at this week's school Mass as he prepares for his pilgrimage to the Holy Land. During his spiritual journey, Father John will walk in the Footsteps of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and the Apostles, visiting and celebrating daily Mass in the most important Shrines and Basilicas. We ask for the Lord's blessing as he recommits himself to living a Christian life. We will miss you Father John and we look forward to celebrating your return!

Lifeskill of the Week

Our Life Skill for this week will focus on "Common Sense: use good judgment." How do you practice good common sense? Choose not to participate in things that will have a negative consequence. Be observant of your surroundings. Choose options that are practical for your situation. Think before you speak so you don't say something you will regret later. Accept that there are some things you can't change.

Summer Uniforms

With the warm weather returning, this is a reminder that we are now back in our summer uniforms. Please see details to the left for all summer uniform expectations. Thank you!

Uniform Drop-Off May 19th

Attention all Saints! If you have any gently used uniforms that you no longer need, we would be delighted to take those items off your hands. On Friday, May 19th from 8:05-10:00AM and 3:05-5:00PM, we will be collecting gently used uniforms in the gym foyer. This is not a uniform swap. It is an opportunity to clear out any uniform pieces from your household that are no longer being used. Thank you!
