School Notes

  • PHILOSOPHY We believe that:
  • - Catholic schools exist to integrate faith, life, and culture.
  • - Parents are the first, most important educators, and that their beliefs, values and actions are the primary and strongest influence on children's lives.
  • - The function of elementary education is to build a strong foundation of basic skills, work habits, and character development in preparation for higher education and for life.
  • - Students learn best in an atmosphere of loving acceptance of their unique God- given qualities.
  • - Students must work hard to do their best, and must strive to develop their full potential as Christian members of their community.
  • - A Catholic education leads students to be academic achievers, good citizens, Christ-centered, and true stewards of God's creation.
  • Therefore, we educate our students to be:
  • SCHOOL-WIDE LEARNING EXPECTATIONS
  • Faithful Disciples who:
  • - Pray, participate in Sunday Mass, and receive the sacraments.
  • - Know the Gospel message, and the beliefs and traditions of their faith.
  • - Serve others, work for social justice, and participate in the faith community. Responsible Citizens who:
  • - Respect themselves, others, and God's creation.
  • - Love their country, exercise their rights, and fulfill their responsibilities.
