School & Preschool News

We have been the recipient of an enormous award this week in our preschool, for which our Principal, Laurie Jennrich has been working for the past year.  We are now a "Four Star Parent Aware" preschool, which means that we meet State Department of Education standards for excellence, and because of this we can extend to parents the availability of public scholarship dollars to send their kids to St. Pascal's.  We have the capacity to about double the enrollment in our preschool for next year, and we expect to do that.  Thank you, Laurie!  As part of all this, Laurie has decided to take on the position of Preschool/Early Learning Director, and to step back from her role as Principal in the K-8 School for the coming year.  This means that we will have an interim Principal at St. Pascal's School for the year ahead, although Laurie will still be around to offer guidance and continuity for her successor.  We are blessed to have this opportunity.  More news is yet to come.

—Fr. Mike Byron
