Hello Everyone:

I hope this note finds you well following a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend. We are extremely fortunate to live and raise our families where we do. If you haven't been out for a drive on some of our country concession roads it would be well worth a drive with your's real nice out there these days.

A few things to share with you.....

Mrs. Diamond, our Vice Principal, will be away from work for a planned medical procedure. She wanted me to let everyone know that she is fine and is looking forward to returning to us in early to mid November. In the meantime, Mr. Paul Campbell and Mr. Al Curran, both retired principals, will share the workload in Mrs. Diamond's absence. Mr. Campbell will be with us for the first 2 weeks and Mr. Curran will then join us for the final two weeks of her absence. Welcome to Mr. Campbell and Mr. Curran to our community.

Our Catholic School Community Council has been formed for the 2016-2017 school year. Mr. Joe Zerdin will once again act as chairperson of the council. Our next meeting will be held on Nov. 3 @ Joan of Arc High School. Details will be shared in the next few weeks. All parents/guardians are welcome to attend.

Pizza and milk will begin on Oct. 26 and will continue for the rest of the school year.
