Principal’s Message Last week all parents were invited to participate in an anonymous, online survey for the purpose of assessing the level of bullying at All Saints Catholic School.  We estimate that it should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete the survey.  Parents are asked to complete the survey by Friday, October 26th.  In advance, we thank you for your participation in our efforts to both assess our current climate and to establish benchmarks for future reference.  As this will be our fourth year of distributing a survey to parents on the topic of bullying, we look forward to analyzing the data to determine patterns and trends in our community and sharing the results with you in the weeks ahead.

We now know and … [Read more...]

The Sentinel ~ October 10, 2012

Principal’s Message As you are aware, this year we have had a number of new teachers join our faculty at All Saints.  Part of the transition for our teachers has been that of helping those who are new to our community to become aware of the mission, culture and traditions which are such an important part of our day to day life.  At the same time, while we remain proud of the legacy for excellence that the faculty has established at All Saints through the years, we also recognize that the gifts, talents and vision of our new members will help us to enhance our program in the years to come.  It is, in essence, a balancing act by which we retain the “best practices” we have implemented while maintaining openness to new ideas and perspectives.  It is this dynamic that will ensure that our … [Read more...]
