Principal’s Message This week I wish to share with you a couple of additional changes in staffing for the upcoming year.  After sixteen years as our Pre-Kindergarten Director, Mrs. Kardaras has decided to resign from her position in order to be able to devote more time to her family and to pursue other opportunities.  I want to thank her for her leadership and for creating a program that is widely recognized for providing our youngest learners with a wonderful introduction to the world of learning.  Our Pre-Kindergarten is truly a nurturing and joyful environment and Mrs. Kardaras is credited with fostering such a warm and supportive atmosphere for the children.  We wish her God’s continued blessings and success as she begins this new phase in her life. I also want to inform you of … [Read more...]

Principal’s Message This week I wish to inform you of a matter related to student safety that recently came to the attention of our diocesan school system.  Last week the Catholic Schools Office of the Archdiocese of Washington became aware of a disturbing scam being conducted via telephone recently and issued the following statement: An unidentified individual has called parents, claimed to have kidnapped a child of theirs, and demanded ransom. In both cases we are aware of – one involving a parent at an archdiocesan school, and the other a parent at a local private school – the claims have been false, with the children safe and accounted for. In one of the cases, the caller purported to put the kidnapped child on the phone and have her ask for help. If you receive a call like this, … [Read more...]

Principal’s Message It was a joy and an honor to witness many of our 2nd grade students receiving their First Communion over the course of the past two weeks.  We continue to remember all of them in our prayers and congratulate them on this wonderful occasion.  I want to take a moment to thank Mrs. Cummings and Mrs. Burnett for so thoughtfully preparing the children.  Through their careful planning and recognition of the fact that this Sacrament is the central focus of the second grade experience, they provided an environment of faith and learning for their students. Congratulations as well to the members of our 8th grade class who received the Sacrament of Confirmation last evening.  I am so proud of each of them for the individual commitment they have made to their Catholic faith … [Read more...]

The Sentinel – May 11, 2016

Principal’s Message This week I would like to provide you with an update regarding some changes in staffing.  Mrs. Bethany Adams, our school nurse, resigned from her position last week due to a relocation to Florida.  Although she was only a member of our community for several months, we remain grateful for the care and compassion that she provided for students visiting the clinic.  We wish her and her family every success and blessing as they begin this new transition.  For the remainder of the year, the clinic will be staffed on most days by Mrs. Jillian Roth and Mrs. Karen Collins, our two substitute registered nurses.  We thank them for their commitment to our school and the health needs of the children. Additionally, I wish to share with you the news of a change within our Title … [Read more...]
