School Notes:

The St. Margaret's Parish began with the establishment of St. Teresa's Parish in Southeast Washington, D.C. in 1879. Northeast Washington, the territory of the current St. Margaret's, was incorporated into St. Teresa's also. As is the case today, workers in Washington found it more economical to reside in our locality than in downtown D.C. But in 1879, they would have to bring their food supplies home from the city. Soon, these workers opened stores locally. Catholic worship and education however, was still located in Southeast. The nearest church was actually Holy Name Church located at 11th Street, N.E. The St. Margaret's Parish mission is to to provide a warm and secure environment where the innocence of childhood is protected while simultaneously encouraging the natural inquisitiveness and creativity of each child. It is our belief that early learning should be informative, fun, stimulating and challenging.
