St. Viator Parish School
Viator Voice: January 30, 2022
This week in America is Catholic Schools Week. This is an annual celebration of Catholic Education across the United States. The theme for this year’s Catholic Schools Week is: “Faith. Excellence. Service.” St. Viator Parish School began its annual celebration week with a Mass attended by the faculty and staff as well as our students and families. Our school will spend this week creating activities for students that share the value a Catholic education provides young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation. On behalf of our Pastor, faculty, and staff, I would like to thank you for the gift of your children!
The past and present success in all we do would not be possible without the significant ministries of the St. Viator Parish School staff. All of our teachers are degreed and certified in their field and many members have Master Degrees and Catechist Certification. We have a full-time nurse, counselor, as well as four Educational Specialists and teacher’s aides to assist us in our mission to adjust and adapt our curriculum and teaching strategies to meet to abilities and learning styles of our students. Elementary school is an important and unforgettable time, and for many of our students it is the most time they will spend at any one school or college. Students will build lasting memories and loving friendships during their years here.
At Saint Viator School, we believe that our parents are the primary educators of their children. Parents and alumni are an integral part of our tight-knit community with your involvement in the classroom, on the sports fields, or to serve the school as members of the Foundation Board, the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) Board, and the School Board. We take this time to thank our parents for your parental involvement, and most importantly, we thank you for your continual investment in a faith-based educational program.
Happy Catholic Schools Week!
Mrs. Katie Kiss
WE RECOGNIZE THAT YOU HAVE A CHOICE AND WE ARE VERY BLESSED BY YOU!
