Embers Annual Fund 2021

A big thank you to all of our families who have contributed to the Annual Fund! Our goal for the Annual Fund is 100% participation by all our families. Every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference!  High participation is a vote of confidence, an important sign that our parents, alumni, faculty, and friends invest in our children and support the school’s mission.  If you have not given yet, there’s still time!

Happenings Around the School

All-School rosary for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Fr. Leo blessed Embers’ nativity scene and 2nd grade students placed Baby Jesus in His manger. The students’ charitable works all contributed to the soft bed of hay on which Baby Jesus can now lay His sweet head! 

Christmas Concert

A BIG thanks to Mr. Sadlowski for putting together an outstanding Christmas concert!  It was an evening to remember! 


Embers’ 5th Grade Boys Basketball team, shown here with one of their coaches, Mr. Paschall, had a great season filled with victories, losses, and lots of good lessons on teamwork, friendship, and basketball!
