St. Thomas the Apostle School is determined by a firm belief that every child can learn and fulfill his/her potential. Rooted in our belief that Christ is our center, we instill in the students that God loves us, accepts us always, and forgives completely. As Christian educators we commit ourselves to live in the spirit of the Gospel and create an environment where students are inspired to grow spiritually, morally, intellectually, personally, and socially. The school community of St. Thomas the Apostle encourages equality and a belief in the dignity of every person. All our efforts as Christian educators are based on the conviction that Christ is "the way, the truth, and the life." (John 14:6)

Principal Note

Thank you for your support of our faculty and administration during this school year. On a personal note having completed my first year I am impressed by the dedication of our parents and school community toward their children’s education. I was happy to see so many families attend the various school and class events throughout the year.

 I am pleased to announce that registration is going very well and I expect the school’s enrollment to rise for next year. In order for our students not to lose ground in their academics over the summer every student will bring home with their report card reading and math assignments. It is important that all students continue reading throughout the summer and practice math skills in order to be ready for the next school year.

When you do review your child’s grades, please congratulate them for their successes; encourage them where they may be weak. There is always room for improvement but your children have worked many hours over the year on their studies, they should be acknowledged.

The faculty, staff and I wish you all a peaceful and restful summer.

Muchas gracias por su apoyo a nuestro profesorado y administración durante este año escolar. En una nota personal, cuando he completado mi primer año, estoy muy impresionado con la dedicación de nuestros padres y comunidad escolar hacia la educacion de sus hijos(as). Me alegro mucho ver a tantas de nuestras familias en los eventos escolares durante todo este año.

Me llena de alegría anunciarles que las matriculaciones van muy bien, y espero un aumento de alumnos para el próximo año escolar. Para que nuestros alumnos no pierdan terreno académicamente durante el verano, llevaran a casa con sus calificaciones trabajos de lectura y matemáticas. Es muy importante que  los estudiantes continúen leyendo y practicando matemáticas durante todo el verano. Este trabajo les ayudara a que estén preparados para el próximo año escolar.

Cuando revise las calificaciones de su hijo(a), por favor deles la enhorabuena por sus logros; anímelos a que se esfuercen en las materias donde van flojos. Siempre se puede mejorar, pero sus hijos (as) han trabajado muchas horas durante este año en sus estudios, su trabajo debe ser reconocido.

El profesorado, personal, y yo les deseamos un verano repleto de paz y descanso.

Joseph Carpenter
