PRINCIPAL’S NOTE

“What do you want for your child?” This is a question asked at Catholic Baptisms, and the parents respond “Baptism”.
Have you asked yourself this question lately about Sister Thea Bowman Catholic School? What do you want for your student? Is it: Faith Formation, Education, or something else?

More importantly, I think the question is: “What will you do for your student to meet that goal?” We are a team, and neither of us can do it alone. Stay focused on your student’s education and be involved with our school!

IOWA ASSESSMENT TESTS

Students will be testing next week in grades 2-8. These tests are important to help us gauge where students are at in various subjects. It is so IMPORTANT that all students are on-time, present, and well-rested next week for testing! Please be sure they are in bed early Sunday night.
