Weekly Parent Letter March 11, 2024

March 11, 2024

Dear Parents and Guardians,

“Brothers and sisters: You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.  Live as children of light.” (Ephesians 5:8)

How amazing to know that we are the light of the world through Christ!  Know someone feeling alone?  Be the light by offering companionship.  Know someone in despair?  Be the light by reminding them there is hope. Know someone in need of prayer?  Be the light by offering up a prayer for them and tell them you are doing so. 

You are the light.  Be the light.

May our light shine before all and give glory to God,

Ms. Danielle Gonzalez

Re-registration is ongoing.  If parents still need to register their children for the 2024-20245 school year, the process to re-register is below.  Please re-register no later than April 30, 2024 to insure a seat for your child and proper planning for the 2024-2025 school year.


Research from the National Catholic Educational Association shows that overall enrollment in Catholic Schools has grown for the second year in a row, graduation rates from Catholic high schools are over 98%, and students in Catholic schools outperform peers in public schools on the National Assessment of Educational Progress. We need these messages to be spread wide and with full heart and voice to let families know that enrolling their child in a Catholic school is both an investment in their academic future and their faith life.
