Notes from the Principal's Desk: February 6, 2018

As you may remember from one of my previous presentations or newsletters, I have three core values through which I view education. My first core value is that every student can learn. Secondly, teachers are the most important and vital component to ensure that students meet with success, more so than any textbook, set of standards or curriculum. Finally, teacher professional development is vital to ensure our faculty understands and uses the most effective instructional methods and practices when in the classroom. I revisit these three concepts as a way of updating the community on two initiatives happening this year. Click here to read more.

Providing for a Catholic Education to Help Sustain the Future of Our Faith

For the last 13 years, the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen has had a profound level of importance in the lives of Scott and Linda Murphy and their two sons, James and Zachary. Moreover, a Catholic education is something the Murphys value not only for their sons, but are also making possible for others who cannot afford it. To that end, they have established The Linda A. and J. Scott Murphy Family Fund. Establishing this scholarship brings Linda and Scott great joy. “It’s an incredible legacy. It’s a financial sacrifice that you make, but it feels good to provide this for tomorrow’s generations. An investment in a Catholic school education is an investment in the future of our faith.”
