Thank You to the Parent Association!

Words cannot express how much we appreciated all you did for us during Teacher Appreciation Week. Thank you for making us feel so special each day. We appreciated all of the cards, flowers, and gifts throughout the week. It was fun to come to school each day with a delicious breakfast waiting for us! The Friday lunch was a wonderful treat! Thank you again for everything!

Health Reminders

As we approach the end of the school year, we remain committed to all safety procedures and protocols so that we can continue in-person learning. Please be sure to keep your child home if he/she exhibits any type of symptom, or if a family member shows symptoms. Frequent and sincere communication between home and school is the key to keeping our doors open and our students, teachers and staff safe and healthy.  Thank you for your continued commitment!

Green Thumbs Club

Calling all gardeners! Our Marian garden area is in need of some green thumbs to help beautify her surroundings!  Please call the school office if you, your family, or a group would like to assist in this simple act of service. Thank you!

There’s an Artist in All of Us!

Year of St. Joseph

Click here to read about Five Spiritual Benefits From the Year of St. Joseph.

The following are brief explanations of the titles of St. Joseph recited in the Litany to St. Joseph.

Guardian of Virgins – St.  Joseph had the role of guarding the sacred virginity of the Blessed Mother.  We ask St. Joseph to protect us also, so that we may love God with a clean spirit and a pure heart.

Pillar of Family Life – Joseph taught Jesus the Jewish faith and led the family in prayer.  He was the protector and guide for the Holy Family and led them through the difficulties and joys of their family life.  We can look to him to protect and guide our families.
