Weekly Update

Graduation is quickly approaching. Your child received a letter from me about our graduation meeting. We will be gathering to discuss the details of the Eighth Grade Graduation on Wednesday, February 6th at 7:00 PM. At this meeting, we will discuss the plans for graduation and answer any questions that you may have. Mrs. Wilson and I look forward to seeing you then. If you are not able to attend, a set of papers that are distributed that evening will be sent home to you.

Below is the website of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Use this link to access scholarship information.


I ask that you please send me a copy of any scholarship or grant that your child receives at school. We do announce these scholarships and grants at graduation. However, in most cases, the high schools or the organization issuing the scholarship or grant does not directly contact the school. Therefore, unless I receive official notification from the students, I am not aware that a scholarship or grant has been awarded to them.
