2009 BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

The Sentinel – February 15, 2017

Principal’s Message Last week I fielded a few questions regarding the change in application/re-registration fees and thought it would be helpful to share the same information in this week’s newsletter. The decision to increase the fees to $125 per student with a family maximum of $250 was the result of an analysis of fees across the diocese.  What we learned through the process is not simply that our fee is below average, but that we are ranked as the most affordable of all schools in this category.  In an effort to maintain a fee structure that communicates value as well as affordability, we implemented this fee increase for the 2017-2018 academic year. We do recognize that families continue to sacrifice financially in order to give their children the gift of a Catholic … [Read more...]

Principal’s Message This week I wish to congratulate the members of the All Saints Robotics Team on their outstanding success at a competition held in Maryland this past Saturday.  The girls’ team (Bernadette Kwari, Samantha Amancio & Aeryn Potocnak) won first place in the Programming Skills Challenge.  The boys (Nicholas Ferguson and Nate Pora) finished as runner-up in the Programming Skills Challenge and in the top three in the Alliance Challenge. The Robotics Team received an invitation yesterday to be one of twenty-three teams competing in the VEX IQ State Championship that will take place next week! We can all be so proud of our students’ success, made that much more special as it was the first competitive robotics event in which our school has participated!  I want to … [Read more...]

Principal’s Message Today each family will receive Re-Registration Forms for the 2017-2018 academic year.   Parents are asked to complete all of the forms and return them to the office no later than Friday, February 17th.  Forms submitted after this date will require a $25.00 late fee. This year, in addition to including the name of your parish, we ask that you also provide your parish registration number.  This will allow us to more efficiently verify parish registration as we confirm tuition plans for each family. Registration of students new to All Saints, including siblings who will be eligible by age for Pre-Kindergarten, has already begun.  Separate forms related to this initial registration process have been sent home to parents who have already expressed interest in … [Read more...]

Principal’s Message Next week All Saints will join with schools across our country in celebrating Catholic Schools Week, an annual opportunity to highlight our heritage and distinct mission.  The theme will once again be Catholic Schools ~ Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service. This is the type of community that we strive to cultivate each day at All Saints.  With a commitment to faith formation and academic excellence, the faculty, staff, clergy and parents are united in their efforts to provide our children an experience that is truly life-changing. Next week we pause to give thanks for the gift of Catholic education and the many blessings we share as members of the All Saints community. The following is a list of special activities planned for the week-long … [Read more...]
