We are now an ACE Scholarship School!  Incoming kindergartners or new students transferring in are eligible to apply for this income-based tuition assistance program.  Example – a family of five with an income below – $128,030 is eligible to apply.  Applications are due by April 15.  Contact Principal Whitehair for assistance with this. Please help spread the word to potential families interested in attending about this great opportunity.


Calling all Kindergartners!  If you have an incoming kindergartner, please call the school office to sign up for a time to attend Kindergarten Roundup on April 25.


THANK YOU for encouraging your child to do his/her homework - reading at home each school night and practicing math facts appropriate for his/her age. Those who meet their second semester class reading goal will enjoy a picnic at Eisenhower Park with Fr. Peter and Principal Whitehair. Reading to and with your child will help develop important literacy skills. New goals are in place for the second semester. REMINDER - students who attend after school are reading each night and can count those minutes.
