A note from the principal

It's hard to believe that the first quarter has ended and the first eight weeks of school are in the books. We have experienced growth in several areas. First, our newest students and teachers have adjusted well largely due to the support and camaraderie of fellow staff and students. St. Catherine of Siena School is a kind, loving and helpful community. Second, our students have shown growth in their prayer life. By responding to the needs of others, praying together as a class and as a school, participating fully in our faith assemblies and actively paying attention during Mass demonstrates our spiritual growth. Third, a good number of our students have shown growth with their Fall MAP scores. It was fun to plan and carry out the incentives for those classrooms and students who met or exceeded their goal(s). 


As we begin the second quarter, I want to thank you for your support and partnership. We have enjoyed small and large successes thus far this school year and look forward to more successes in the coming months. Please keep all of us in your daily prayers that we continue being helpful, kind, and loving; that we continue to increase our prayer life and conversations with God; and that we increase our spiritual and academic knowledge. I'm blessed to be part of a community where each person makes a Christian difference.


Blessings to you and your family,


Mike Jacks
