The Sentinel – Volume 11, Issue 9

Living Stones on the Pathway to Heaven… Message from the Principal Over the course of the past several years, our school community has worked together to create a bully-free school zone.  While we can be pleased with the progress we have made, this is an initiative toward which we must continue to direct time and resources each year.  If there is one instance of bullying, then there is still work to be done. At last Friday’s Diocesan Educational Institute, I attended a presentation on bullying hosted by an organization that is on the forefront of bringing this issue to the attention of parents, schools and community members via media presentations.  The session touched upon the effects of bullying as well as the rise of cyber-bullying, a particular form of harassment that has gained … [Read more...]

Living Stones on the Pathway to Heaven… Message from the Principal The Knights of Columbus Hall was nearly full on Saturday evening as families gathered for the PTO Bingo Night event.  It was a joy to see so many parents and students relaxing and enjoying a time of fellowship and games!  I wish to thank our event coordinator, Mrs. Linda Gaynord, for organizing the many details behind the scenes and her husband, Mr. Bill Gaynord, for facilitating the bingo games.  I also want to thank the Knight of Columbus for their continued generosity to our school community. Through their hospitality in hosting our Bingo Nights and financial generosity throughout the year, they have shown strong support for the mission of our parish school.  On behalf of the families of All Saints Catholic School, … [Read more...]

The Sentinel – Volume 11, Issue 7

Message from the Principal This week I am pleased to announce that Miss Gahagan, our music teacher, and Mr. John Laird celebrated their wedding on Sunday afternoon.  Some of you have actually had an opportunity to meet Mr. Laird as he has been assisting as accompanist during our Friday morning masses and has been involved in productions of the Upper Room Theater Ministry at All Saints.  We congratulate both Mr. and Mrs. Laird and wish them many years of joy and blessings! On Thursday and Friday of this week I will be away on retreat with the principals of the Arlington Diocese.  We will gather in West Virginia for two days of prayer, reflection and fellowship. I will, however, return to Manassas in plenty of time for the PTO sponsored Bingo Night at the Knights’ Hall on Saturday … [Read more...]

The Sentinel – Volume 11, Issue 6

Living Stones on the Pathway to Heaven… Message from the Principal In the Diocese of Arlington we are blessed with an outstanding selection of high school programs:Bishop Denis J. O’Connell (Arlington), Bishop Ireton (Alexandria), Paul VI (Fairfax), Seton (Manassas) and the recently opened Pope John Paul the Great (Dumfries).  Although high school may be many years down the path for your family, I encourage you now to begin planning for the next step in your child’s Catholic education. Of the high schools in our diocese, Seton School is unique as it offers a program that begins at the 7thgrade.  For a number of years, Mrs. Carroll, the principal, has graciously extended to the students of All Saints the option of deferred acceptance.  Through this arrangement, students at All … [Read more...]
