Letter from the Principal
Can you feel the chill in the air? We definitely had a change in the weather. It was cool in the morning and day was very pleasant. But let's not put away our summer clothing too quickly. I hear that warmer weather will be back next week. This change in weather will also bring sniffles and other illness. Let's do everything to keep our immunity up!
October is a very busy month. Along with all the special events happening at our School, October is also the month we focus on Respect Life and celebrating All God’s Children irrespective of our disabilities. During this month we pray that our words and actions proclaim that every human life is cherished and valued. May we build a culture of life by embracing our mission as messengers of God’s love. May we be the face of God’s mercy and love to every person we meet.
Abba, Father, deepen my faith, increase my hope and strengthen my love for all my brothers and sisters, especially those in my care.
Sincerely in Christ,

Through a combination of play-based, sensory, hands-on opportunities and structured activities we concentrate on spiritual, social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth.
