Grades 1st - 7th

Our Mission is to create an environment where families and children feel safe and accompany them on their journey to be closer to Jesus Christ and God.

Our Focus this year is on our Head, Heart and Hands:  

We want your child to have the knowledge of our faith (Head), to strengthen their relationship with God aka Discipleship (Heart) and to serve within our families, our community and beyond (Hands)
