Athletes of the Year

Brett Vampran and Kellie Wheat

From the Principal

Thanks to all who were so kind last week during Teacher Appreciation Week. Your generosity included gifts, cards, food, well wishes, and a car wash! I read a couple of weeks ago that job satisfaction is highest among those who are in service to others. I believe that this is certainly true among our Catholic school teachers. They enjoy their work. They love working with your children, and they appreciate the support they receive from you as parents. Thank you for letting us serve your family.
