The education of your children is of key importance to you, the faculty, staff, and myself.
We endeavor to foster the growth of your children by building a faith community here that hears the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and shares that message through lives of Christian service.
It is a challenging, ongoing task that prepares the students for their role as citizens of the country and holy mother Church.
It is our commitment to prepare our students to thrive in a world where peace and justice are wanting values and morals, where their ability to succeed is based on their ability to problem solve, and where their goals are planted in the firm vision of life with Jesus in His service.The teachers and staff here model our goals.
I am proud to work with them and invite you to share in our commitment to enable the students to be the best they can be. It is an exciting time to be learning and being a part of Pocahontas Catholic School. Mrs. Edge.
