From the Principal's Office

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Happy New Year! A new year brings a myriad of possibilities and opportunities for change and growth. Here at school, there are many chances for students to begin a New Year with a positive attitude and a renewed commitment to their academic endeavors. Steps like doing homework, being prepared each day for class, and studying a little extra each day, are great ways to make academic improvements. Our teachers are excellent resources for help, and they are here to ensure your child’s success. Maintaining positive and open communication with your child’s teacher(s) aids in strengthening the partnership between school and home. It is through a strong home and school partnership that we can succeed as a school.

A new year is also an opportunity to make sure that your child is wearing the correct winter uniform and arriving promptly at school each day. Attention to these matters will give each student the best opportunity for success in this New Year and in the second trimester. Thank you for proactively assisting your child in their school achievement.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Haggerty
