Principal’s Message

June 10, 2024

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On Saturday, June 8th, the Church celebrated the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Mary’s love and dedication for her son and Lord were so great, she stood under the cross knowing, like Jesus, this must be.  She accepted the will of God so that all may be saved.  So that all may have life and have it to the full!  

Let us offer a prayer of thanksgiving for our heavenly mother and her immaculate heart.  During any trial and tribulation, let us turn to her for comfort and guidance.  She understands our sorrow and pain.  She is a model of great faith, reminding us to keep moving forward and to look for the resurrection in our lives.

Honoring her joyful heart,

Ms. Danielle Gonzalez

Happy Retirement

Congratulations Margaret Viggiano who is retiring at the end of this school year!  Thank you for your service to Catholic Schools.  We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.  Our prayers accompany you.  Please remember us in your prayers too.

Judy Banyai will be teaching Art next year.  We have started the search for a Middle School Science Teacher.   We do have a great prospective candidate for the position.  Please continue to pray for the best match for our school and students.


Please know that the school calendar currently on the school website with the use of Google Calendar will not be up next year.  Instead, the calendar component of Rediker, which had been used in the past, will now be used as the main school calendar.  This is being done as a security measure.  Only parents and staff with the login capability to Rediker will be able to view the school calendar.
