Notes from the Principal's Desk: May 12, 2022

We would like to thank everyone who attended Mass today and participated in our May Crowning. It was wonderful to see the second-grade students in the First Communion clothes and have them join the third through eighth-grade students in receiving the sacrament. In a special way, we would like to thank, Sr. Mary Catherine, Ms. Paranzino, and Fr. Gough for organizing the May crowning. 

I also like to thank everyone for their flexibility and patience as we navigate this most recent COVID surge. Currently, we have 12 students who are positive for COVID. Below I share our most recent COVID dashboard.
