School News

The students in grades 2-8 will complete their IOWA tests this week. This is a big change for the Diocese. We usually do testing in the Spring of the school year and we have changed from Terra Nova tests to IOWA tests. It will be interesting to see how the students do. More information to follow…

Thank you to the Knights of Columbus for supporting our school! They are covering the cost for our “Education in Virtue” program that we are initiating this school year. We appreciate their constant support.

Autumn arrives on Friday!!! A Blessed Fall to all!



Sunday, September 17
The 5th grade is excited to be starting their first year in the “big” hallway with the 6th-8th graders. They are learning to be better organized while following a class schedule and adjusting to changing classrooms and teachers for each of their classes. ClassDojo is being used for positive reinforcement of good behaviors. Students can earn Dojo points by displaying a positive behavior. Rewards are given for meeting specific points goals. The students love hearing the “ding” when someone earns a Dojo point. It’s also a great communication tool for the teacher and parents. It’s like our very own social media site just for our class to see! We are looking forward to a great school year and to sharing what goes on in our class with the parents via ClassDojo!



Yard Signs

We are looking for people to advertise our school by displaying our yard signs. If any parishioners live in a high traffic area or in a neighborhood with a lot of school age families and are willing to display our sign, please call the school office to get one.


Open Enrollment

As you read about our school on the web site each week, we hope that you begin to picture the value and scope of a Catholic School education. We are very proud of our parish school and invite you to enroll your child(ren) for the next school year. Please contact the school at (412) 771-4545 for your personal tour!
