Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is hard to believe that we are preparing to begin the 2018 – 2019 school year! At this very moment, the school is being cleaned and polished. In less than two weeks the school office will open and the teachers will begin preparing their classrooms for opening day. Although I am enjoying the warm and relaxing days of summer, I am very excited and enthusiastic about beginning this new year. As I look ahead, I think about all that makes St. Stanislaus Kostka CAQN unique, and I feel blessed. I look forward to continuing a tradition of excellence in education while developing religious and moral values in the warm, nurturing environment that St. Stan’s is known for. I especially look forward to the smiles, conversation, curiosity, and enthusiasm of our students. The school is far too quiet without them.
I am pleased to share with you the names of the dedicated men and women who will share their passion for education with your children this year. I am confident that our faculty will share their knowledge, compassion, and faith with your children as they use a variety of teaching strategies to meet the needs of their students.
