CATHOLIC EDUCATION is above all a question of communicating CHRIST. - Saint John Paul II
Dear Family and Friends of Saint Joan of Arc School,
We have all heard the phrase “When the going gets tough, the tough get going!” How true this is of our school community of Saint Joan of Arc. This past year tried our patience, demanded of us greater charity toward one another, and forced us to come together for the common good. The Coronavirus Pandemic made us close our school in March of 2020 and introduced us to the unknown world of “online” learning. We learned to wear masks at class, Mass and even during gym time! We sanitized everything to the point where it is amazing there is still a finish on anything at the new school.
And, of course, it isn’t over yet. But, to paraphrase Saint Paul, “we are more than conquerors because of Him who loves us!” The reason for our school is Jesus Christ. Yes, we have great academics, a family atmosphere and a wonderful faculty and staff. But Saint Joan of Arc exists because of who we are as followers of Jesus Christ! It is Jesus who not only got us through this past year but has put us on such an amazing path for the coming year!
We are going to be 500+ students for the 2021-2022 school year (the largest elementary school in the diocese!); we have full classes and waiting lists for those families who really want to be here; and, we are on our way to finishing the third floor! Goals met and goals yet to be conquered! In good times and in bad, the Lord is here to support us and lead us to even greater things!
Welcome back and may God bless you this coming school year!
