Headmaster’s Notes

Schedule For This Week

A reminder that school will be closed on Friday, February 15 due to the MAIS conference and on Monday, February 18 in observance of Presidents’ Day.

Gala

Gala
Saturday night’s Parent Association Gala was splendid. Thanks to all who coordinated, contributed to the success of a beautiful evening—and to the so very many who contributed resources to making the event a great fundraiser for the school. Fundraising goals were met and exceeded. There will be a reduction in the tuition increase for 2019-2020, thanks to the enthusiasm around the Fund A Need! We will calculate this precisely, and report back to you soon!

Gala This Weekend

We look forward to seeing you at the Gala this weekend! And if you are unable to be there in person, we invite you to join in advancing the Fund-A-Need electronically and donate online. PA’s landmark decision last year to lower tuition has increased student retention and stimulated a lot of new interest in the school–including a record open house in January! The Fund-A-Need this year is about making our already low tuition increase for 2019-20 lower still. Join in making the best value proposition anywhere in Catholic Independent schooling even more accessible and affordable.
