February 5th

Dear SKS Families, In this blog are more pictures from Catholic Schools Week. I wish I could include more!

Dear SKS Families, In this coming Sunday's church bulletin communication, Msgr. Brouwers will go into detail about our school forming a Board of Limited Jurisdiction.

November 20

Dear SKS Families, I don’t like the Thanksgiving holiday….I love it. It’s a great break in the action in the life of our very busy school.

For anyone who has lost a loved one and this is your first holiday without them, I hope you find peace and comfort in the loving memories of that special loved one. They are still with you in those memories. For those of you traveling this weekend, [...]
