Dear Parents, We need to tighten up our uniform policy and our tardy to school policy next year, as things are getting lax. The uniform is a symbol of our equality of persons created in the image of God. It represents order and discipline. Excessive tardies are disruptive and serve as poor training for our Saints and Scholars. Remember:

  • Unless it’s a gym day, the only gym shoes allowed are all black or all white low-top sneakers; shoes in a combination of black and white are prohibited. No contrasting logos or soles.

  • Hair should remain its natural color.

  • Excessive tardies will lead to detentions (and fees for supervision).

Choir members from grades 4, 5, 6, and 7 are invited to come to school to sing at the 8th grade graduation on Wed., May 31. Interested members should report to the choir loft at 6:30 PM.

Summer School dates are from June 12 to July 13, Monday through Thursday, 8:00 - 2:00. The cost is reduced this year to $300 per child.

Good luck to all our 8th graders! Heavenly Father, we thank you for the wonderful privilege of knowing these young graduates and their families. Please watch over them and help them to use their gift and talents to make the world a better place:
