Spring  2017

 

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Happy Spring. Plenty going on at our school. ITBS testing is over and we are optimistic that we did well.  Results have been mailed to you and we are analyzing our student progress.  Looks like we moved more students into the top quartile. More than 50% of our students had a Core Composite of 75% or higher. Our 8th grade students who took the High School Placement Exam, did excellent this year as well.  The results we received in January showed 65% of our 8th graders scored 75% or higher on the national percentile.  Very impressive.

We are in Lent and preparing for the wonderful Easter Celebration.  What a great time in our Church. We just celebrated First Communion on March 25th and preparing for Confirmation with our 8th graders on April 28th. Please keep these students and their families in your prayers.

On April 3rd, the Archbishop came and celebrated a school Mass with us to commemorate the 90th Anniversary of our School.  How exciting.

We have been working toward our STREAM Certification through the Florida Catholic Conference (FCC).  We have a visit scheduled for our review on May 4th & 5th.  We are very excited.  We will be one of two Catholic schools in the state that will be visited. We are hoping for a successful visit. In any case, we have truly grown academically as a school through this process.

We spent time in the Fall working on our Mission, Goals and Beliefs. Please see the attached Mission Statements, Goals and Beliefs.  We will be reviewing these each year to be sure they represent the vision and mission of our school.

We have many upcoming events. The year has gone so quickly.  We are in our last quarter and our spring break is upon us.  Enjoy the time off and prepare for the summer.

Looking forward to the last quarter and all the excitement that the end of year brings. Thank you for your continued support.

 

Thank you for all you do to support us.  Hope you enjoy our new look. If you see something that needs correction or can be added to our site, let us know.
