First Awards Program of the year~

If you are new to our school, the Awards Program highlights a student from each grade who exhibits a specific Learner's Attribute. This month's award recognized those students who show Open-Mindedness. The 4th graders did an awesome job creating a program for them and each student was given a book and certificate.

Call to Action! 👟 👟 👟

Support us in the Catholic Schools Walk!


Our 2 mile route will circle around Enderis Park and its neighborhood. The date is set for October 15th, at 9:00am.


Please support the Marching Saints by making a donation or sharing our link to donate.


We have raised $3,365 to date! All money raised goes directly to our school and will be used to remove wood chips from the Tot Lot, replacing them with artificial green turf. The more money we raise, the higher our matching potential will be!

Pop Tops~

Please collect and encourage your students to bring in pop tops to school. We have a collection box in the library.
