Back to School Night and Open Houses are scheduled two to three times a year and are a wonderful opportunity for parents, students, and teachers to come together as a community to see what instruction takes place during the first hour of each school day In the classrooms, parents will observe their child(ren) involved in a schedule of tasks and in whole class instruction. Our Open House at the end of the school year allows parents and students to view special exhibits, art work, and school projects in each of the classrooms.
Catholic Schools Week is January 28, 2018 through February 2, 2018.
Students participate in the Sunday, 9am Mass.
The theme, “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service,” encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education. First, schools are communities—small communities in their own right, but also members of the larger communities of parish, town, state and nation. They are, in the first place, communities of faith, where children are openly taught about God, where God is worshiped regularly and where students and faculty put their faith into practice on a daily basis. Secondly, Catholic schools exist to pass on knowledge, not just the practical knowledge of reading, writing, arithmetic and so on, but also knowledge of God and truth, which is our spiritual heritage as Catholics. Finally, Catholic schools are communities of service, places where helping one another and aiding the needy are the the normal way of living life.
