May Crowning

May is a busy time in school. We all have such hurried lives, but if we don't stop living in the present and enjoying our children, we will lose a big part of our children's growth. It is also an exceptional time for children. You see a lot of change happening during this time. Suddenly, you find things are clicking, and children are starting to read, understand the content, and mature quite a bit. Enjoy this special time!


On May 13, we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Fatima. Mother Mary has appeared as an apparition under many titles to many diverse peoples in different periods of history. Some popular ones include Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Sorrows, Our Lady of the Rosary, and so on. She suffered a sword piercing her heart as she watched her son's Passion and Death, and she is constantly alert to even our most minor sufferings. Our Blessed Mother comes to us when we need her most, with a message and guidance specific to the problems and suffering. Let us continue to pray to her for her special intercession, eternal compassion, and good counsel.


Two significant events are just around the corner. Our performing Arts showcase, a testament to our students' talent and hard work, is on May 24 at 5:30 pm. On Saturday, May 25, we have our annual Auction and Gala, a wonderful opportunity to support our school and enjoy a delightful evening. Both events are not to be missed! If you haven't purchased your gala tickets yet, we encourage you to do so at your earliest convenience.


To Christ, through Mary!


Sincerely in Christ,

Elizabeth Joseph, Principal

Start Early with Our Year-Round Preschool & Kinder Prep

1-12 Teacher/Student Ratio & Flexible Schedules for Working Parents

Through a combination of play-based, sensory, hands-on opportunities and structured activities we concentrate on spiritual, social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth. Each of the classes focus on the age-appropriate developmental needs of the children in our care. That focus helps us create a stimulating program that provides hands-on learning centers, individualized attention and encourage each child’s individual growth.
