A Note from Mrs. DaLay

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I look forward to partnering with you and supporting your child’s faith development.

This year, we continue our focus on the Catholic Social Teachings. We will explore our call to Family, Community, and Participation. See the link for more information on this teaching.

We continue to work on the teaching of Care For the Earth. We ask all our families to limit their use of plastic bottles and to not use plastic grocery bags. Last year, our current 7th graders coined B.Y.O.B. -bring your own bottle/bag! Plastic cups will be available in the cafeteria for water so we will not be offering the plastic water bottles. Students are encouraged to bring their own bottle!

See the link below for more information on proper recycling.

Family Life Series

As part of the Archdiocese Religion curriculum, each school is required to teach the Family Life series to students in Grades K-8 throughout the school year. The Family Life series is published by Benziger Publishers. Parents are primary educators of their children but with the assistance of elementary school and parish schools of religion, together we can help and guide our students to understanding the moral teachings of the Church. At Back to School Night, parents were able to view the textbook.
