Happy Student Appreciation Day!

We appreciate our students!  To start off Catholic Schools Week, our students are enjoying an out of uniform day, as well as no homework, and extra recess.  Then this afternoon, the 8th grade takes on the teachers in our annual volleyball game.

We also want to share how much we appreciate our alumni.  This morning, Mrs. McCormick started the day off right by opening a letter from Mr. Faustin Weber, Headmaster of JPII, who shared the first semester academic successes of several of our former students.  Congratulations!  We are proud of you!
