From the Office of Steve Kelnhofer, P3 - 5th Grade Principal

News from the South Hall

Dear Parents,


Happy Valentine’s Day!  Today we will be celebrating with our classrooms by sharing treats, kind notes and fun games.  It’s amazing all of these items can share love as Jesus taught.  I don’t believe Jesus ever described love as a feeling, but rather an action.  The ultimate act of love was shown on the cross.  A vulnerable sacrifice for another.  As the song goes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.


Parent/Teacher Conferences

Due to the cancellation of school and evening activities on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 the Elementary parent/teacher conferences will be moving to a format in which teachers and parents will set up a mutually agreeable time to conference.  Elementary teachers will communicate with parents or guardians to reschedule the planned conferences.


Thank you for your understanding and partnering with us on your child’s educational journey.


God Bless, Steve Kelnhofer
