Developing a Child's Mind, Body, and Soul

February - 2016

2016 has started off with a bang! Students and staff hit the ground running after Christmas break and have not looked back. I can't believe that January has already passed! We had our first basketball game of the season, went skiing at Sunrise, delivered our Family Life program, and Bishop Wall recently visited to celebrate Mass with us. It is always a blessing to have him visit. We will end the month of January by starting Catholic Schools Week on the 31st. Make sure to check out the article below for a special calendar for Catholic Schools Week and all of the special activities that we have planned. As we begin Lent this month, please keep our staff and students in your prayers.

Opportunities for Volunteer Hours

We have a few volunteer opportunities for hours this month.


  • We still need volunteers for the Spring Gala committee.
  • We had a new entry door and frame installed at the school. We still need someone to paint the them.
  • We need to have someone replace, caulk, and paint the trim on the playground side of the older modular building.
  • We need to have someone clean the gutters on the modular building.

Please email me (byorksmith@stantschool.org) if you are interested.

A Great Time on the Slopes!

SA students had a blast on the ski slopes during our annual ski trip. It is always amazing to see first time skiers and boarders start the day barely being able to stand up and then finish the day zooming down the mountain. Staff, students, and families had a wonderful time on a beautiful day. A special thanks to staff and families that made this day possible. To check out some pictures of the day, please visit our album on our Facebook page HERE.
