Call or Email you State Senator! Please contact your state senator and ask him to support HB217, a bill that would increase the annual cap on tax credits that are donated to GRACE Scholars and other SSO’s. Passage of this bill would lead to more tuition assistance to deserving students wanting to receive a Catholic Education through the GRACE Scholars Program.  To help, please call and email these senators:

THANK YOU to all of the students and families who supported our Scholastic Spring Book Fair. It was a huge success! We could not have done it without our parent and grandparent volunteers. Because of your generosity, the library will be able to add new book titles to the shelves as well purchase new classroom and library materials. The 3rd grade is the winner of the grade level Book Buck Contest. They will have their choice of an ice cream social or pizza party after spring break.

A Reminder to Eighth Grade Parents: Confirmation letters to Fr. Ragan are due by March 31st.  The letter should be signed by both parents and student.
