The Sentinel – Volume 12, Issue 1

The Sentinel ~ August 31, 2011   Principal’s Message It was wonderful to welcome back our students and families for the first day of school on Monday. It is always a joy to witness the smiles and enthusiasm of the children as they return to All Saints, a place that for many has become a “second home”.  Anchored in the cherished traditions of our faith, our school provides a safe and nurturing environment where the students are encouraged to excel academically and to grow in wisdom and grace each day.  With the perspective that faith formation is our top priority as a Catholic school community, this week I would like to share with you our new theme as well as two other areas of focus for the year ahead. The theme for the 2011-2012 academic year is Seek Christ in one another; … [Read more...]

Living Stones on the Pathway to Heaven… Message from the Principal On Friday evening families and friends gathered with the 8th Grade Class of 2011 to celebrate their successful completion of the program and to wish them continued success and blessings as they transition to high school. While the ceremony represented an important milestone for our graduates, it was also a significant moment for a number of families for whom this was their final All Saints graduation.  This week I would like to acknowledge those families who have been a part of our school family for twelve or more years and whose youngest child has now graduated.  I thank them for their commitment to Catholic education and for having chosen All Saints Catholic School.

Living Stones on the Pathway to Heaven… Message from the Principal Last Friday we celebrated the success of the 6th Annual Race for Education, a unique event that has emerged as our most significant fundraiser at All Saints.  Over the course of the past six years, the program has generated more than $200,000 in support of our school and special initiatives.  As we have been the recipient of tremendous generosity from family and friends from around the world, it is fitting that we share the fruits of our success with one of our long-term partners, St. Judes Childrens’ Research Hospital. I am pleased to share with you today that we surpassed our goal, raising a grand total of $43,492.90. On Monday the PTO Board and I processed the paperwork to generate a check in the amount of $6524.00 … [Read more...]

Living Stones on the Pathway to Heaven… Message from the Principal Last week we received the results of the standardized testing program for students in grades two through seven who participated in this assessment during April.  In addition to providing an objective measure of each student’s level of mastery in reading, math and language arts, the data is beneficial for the planning of future instruction.  The teachers have already received copies of class summaries as well as individual student reports, both of which they will reference during the month of June when they complete the Planning for Instruction process for the 2011-2012 academic year.  Using this approach, the teachers will identify those students who obtained full mastery, partial mastery or not-mastery for each objective … [Read more...]

Living Stones on the Pathway to Heaven… Message from the Principal This week I would like to congratulate those second graders who received Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time last Saturday as well as those who will be receiving their First Communion in the weeks ahead. I am very proud of each of them and consider it a privilege to have witnessed this special grace-filled moment.  Congratulations to all of their parents, who as the primary educators, led their children to the table of the Lord.  Thank you, Mrs. Cummings and Mrs. Gurley, for providing the instruction and guidance which helped prepare the children so beautifully for this encounter with Christ. Summer Learning Program 2011 During the last few weeks the faculty has discussed the merits of a summer learning … [Read more...]
