Principal’s Message This week I wish to invite all of our school families to our upcoming graduation festivities.  The students will gather in the church at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, June 9th to observe the Pass-it-On Ceremony, an annual tradition and prayer service during which the 8th grade students “pass on” their leadership role to the rising 7th grade class as symbolized by the handing on of the 8th grade honor medals.  Following a special breakfast for the graduates, at 11:00 a.m. the 8th grade students will participate in the Walk of Honor, a custom by which all of the students in grades K-7 line the hallways and applaud for the graduates as they exit the building for the final time as students.  The celebration culminates with a Mass at 4:00 p.m. followed by the … [Read more...]

Principal’s Message This week I wish to invite you to participate in a general survey designed to measure your overall satisfaction with our school and the programs it offers. This initiative is designed to provide faculty, staff and administration with another source of feedback regarding parent perceptions.  The survey is comprised of one key question:  On a scale of 1-10, how confident are you in recommending All Saints Catholic School to family, friends and acquaintances?  A follow up question based upon each individual’s response yields additional information which can be used in planning future goals for our school. I do hope that many of you will take a few minutes to respond to this brief survey.  Your candid responses will help to provide an important … [Read more...]

Principal’s Message It is with great joy that I share with you the news that the Munsell Family learned yesterday that Michael’s cancer is now in remission.  Although he will continue to receive chemotherapy treatments, they will be at a reduced level.  Let us give thanks to God for the success of Michael’s treatment and pray that he and his family continue to be surrounded by the healing presence of our Risen Savior.   Tomorrow all students will participate in the 12th Annual Race for Education.  The following is a list of important reminders for all students and parents regarding the event.   This year, as a sign of our support, we are pleased to dedicate our event to Michael Munsell.  As he runs his race against cancer, may he know of our continued … [Read more...]
