Congratulations to the Class of 2020

As we approach these final and very busy days of the school year, I would like to take this opportunity to wish each of you a blessed, peaceful, relaxing summer. Thank you to our teachers, our students have continued to grow in knowledge and grace.


To our 8th grade graduates as they continue their educational journey in high school, we wish you much success and many blessings. We look forward to the day that we may properly celebrate your accomplishments. You are always welcome to return to us and share your successes.


No one could have predicted the Global Pandemic and its impact to our school year or daily lives. Our hearts and prayers go out to all that have been personally affected by the unprecedented events. We truly appreciate the front line essential workers from those in healthcare to grocery stores to delivery drivers working to keep us safe.


The impact of the COVID-10 virus continues to be a very dynamic and fluid situation. We will remain very close to the recommendations coming from the CDC, WHO, and SNHD as well as work closely with the Diocese and State of Nevada as we further strengthen our protocols and prepare for a new school year. As you know through experience, the safety and well-being of our school community will always be our top priority.


To our parents, we thank you for honoring and entrusting us with your most precious children. We loved watching them grow spiritually and academically. Stay safe and stay tuned!


Blessings,
Mrs. Tracy Brunelle, Principal

Shout out to Mary Ellis Davies, Randy Boynton, Susan Crame, Tara Dudley and Harry Cutrona
