In Christ’s love and grace, Mrs. Colleen Kotrba, Principal
Welcome back to our returning families and a big hello to our new families! So much has been going on to prepare for your return keeping safety, education, and a sense of community at the front of our minds and hearts. Every year the start of school brings both excitement and some nervousness. This year may have a larger dose of both due to the pandemic and all the guidelines to help families. Yet, given the nature of our school, its size, and our recent history, we have proven that we are able to pivot quickly to whatever situations may arise and communicate those changes to our families for the good of all. We will continue to follow the metrics and guidelines of the Oregon Department of Education as well as that of the Archdiocesan Department of Catholic Schools. Of course, our hope is that all grades will have in-class instruction as the days and weeks progress. We pledge to do our part to make that a reality. On your part, I ask for your patience as we all learn new systems to make sure your family, our teachers, and our staff stay safe, grow in our faith, and maximize the learning opportunities given us. Please know of my ongoing prayers for this school year. It will be one to remember. Let us make it one of exceptional efforts to live out our mission of faith formation, scholarship, leadership, and service.
Blessings, Fr. William Holtzinger, Pastor
