Please note we do not have school tomorrow (10/14/16) or Monday (10/17/16).  Our teachers will be busy learning on Friday and Monday.  Friday teachers will be attending the 21st Century Learning Conference at Creston High School. This is a great day of collaboration with fellow educators about how to incorporate technology into our everyday lessons. On Monday teachers will be traveling to Des Moines to meet with the other Diocesan Schools.  This day is focused on Faith development in the morning and effective teaching strategies in the afternoon.  Our teachers will be eager to see our students back in their seats on Tuesday and ready to share some of their new ideas that they gained from our two days of professional development.

We have many events and activities coming up please take note:
