2009 BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

The Sentinel – January 8, 2014

January 8, 2014 Message from the Principal Happy New Year!  I hope that you and your family enjoyed the Christmas holiday and the many opportunities to celebrate the season.  With the start of the New Year, plans are already underway for 2014-2015.  As we prepare for our Open House events and registration for the upcoming year, I want to invite you to continue to share your experiences of All Saints with friends, neighbors and colleagues.  As the research has shown, the sentiments shared by current parents are the single most effective form of marketing for a school.  No doubt, the sense of pride that surrounds All Saints and the abiding sense of community have already compelled many of you to share our story, as evidenced by the growth in our enrollment over the past five years.  In … [Read more...]

The Sentinel – June 12, 2013

Principal’s Message On Monday evening, families and friends gathered with the 8th Grade Class of 2013 to celebrate their successful    completion of our 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 participating in their final All Saints graduation after many years in our community.  This week I would like to acknowledge those families who have been a part of our school family for more than ten 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. Newton Family (13 Years) Stalker/Stangl Family (13 … [Read more...]

Principal’s Message On Monday morning class representatives from grades 4-8 participated in the 2nd Annual Catholic Challenge Cup, an academic style competition that highlights our students’ knowledge of their faith.  Once again, it was a great joy to witness the enthusiasm that the students demonstrated for the event and their support for one another.  Where else but in a Catholic school can one observe hundreds of young people cheering one another on as they celebrate their knowledge of Church doctrine!  Congratulations to Mussie Adiamseged (6B), winner of the competition, and to Emma Downes (7A), who placed second! The end of year festivities will continue throughout this week and through the final days of school.  For details about all of our special celebrations, please see the … [Read more...]

The Sentinel – May 29, 2013

 Principal’s Message If the greatest measure of the success of our school can be found in the accomplishments of our graduates, then the Ordination of Fr. Matthew Carroll, class of 1998, was certainly a high-water mark for the community of All Saints! It was a great joy for members of the faculty & staff, along with school families, to witness the Mass of Ordination held at St. Dominic Church in Washington, D.C last Friday.  For me, one of the most poignant moments occurred at the end of the liturgy when, after the closing prayer, the Bishop knelt at the foot of the sanctuary in order to receive a blessing from each of the newly ordained.  As the entire congregation stood motionless observing this extraordinary moment, the silence was broken only by the ringing of the Angelus … [Read more...]

The Sentinel – May 22, 2013

Principal’s Message As we approach the close of another academic year, it is important that we acknowledge and thank those members of the faculty and staff who will not be returning in the fall.  Each, in their own way, has contributed to the success of our school and has forever touched the lives of the children. Mrs. Camille Karcher, our school counselor of five years, is resigning in anticipation of the birth of another child.  During her time with us, she has significantly influenced the life and culture of our school through her work with groups as well as individual students, parents and faculty. Additionally, she has coordinated our school-wide anti-bullying effort and recently helped to establish the new Student Ambassadors Program.  Most importantly, she has been a calm and … [Read more...]
