“When you visit the school, I’m sure you’ll be as proud of our students as we are. What helps make their accomplishments possible is the dedication and commitment of our teachers, staff, administrators, board members, parents and volunteers. I’m thankful for them every day, but I want to make a point—at this special time of year for Catholic schools—of publicly extending my deepest appreciation to everyone who makes our school a success.” ~Vicki Kalina Marvin, Principal
