2009 BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

The Sentinel – June 18, 2014

Message from the Principal On Friday afternoon, families and friends gathered with the 8th Grade Class of 2014 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.

The Sentinel – May 28, 2014

Message from the Principal It is with sadness that I announce the passing of Sr. Laurence Bucher, O.S.B., who served as Principal of All Saints during the early decades of the school’s history.  She was one of many Benedictine Sisters of Bristow who led the school from the time of its founding in 1957 until 1990.  We remain grateful for the leadership of Sr. Laurence and the difference she made in the lives of the children and families of our community.  She is fondly remembered by the longest serving members of our faculty and her legacy continues to shine.  As the Benedictine Sisters gather this evening and tomorrow to recall the many lives and hearts touched by Sr. Laurence, may they be consoled by our prayers and well-wishes for their community. This week I wish to also share with … [Read more...]

May 21, 2014 Message from the Principal 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. Foeckler who joined our faculty last fall will be departing in June in order to prepare for the birth of her first child.  In addition to teaching all of the music classes and leading the Schola at Mass, Mrs. Foeckler directed the recent Spring Choral Concert and coordinated the music for our annual Christmas Pageant.  I am grateful for all of her efforts during her first year of teaching and wish her blessings as she anticipates the birth of her … [Read more...]
