No School - October 4th

Reminder, there will be no school Friday, October 4, 2019.  The Business and Scrip Offices will be open normal hours.

From the Office of Steve Kelnhofer, PreK - 8th Grade Principal

Dear Parents,


We will be celebrating homecoming with five fun dress up days next week, please look below for more information. It will be fun to see all the beach wear, crazy hats/socks, neon, sports team apparel and spirit wear!


As the weather cools, please support your child in bringing, coats, jackets, or a fleece to stay warm at recess. Students are expected to go outside for recess when weather permits.


It has been a wonderful month of September filled with joy, learning and faith. Thank you for your continued partnership in your child’s or children’s educational experience as we help them learn The Ledger Way.


God Bless, Steven Kelnhofer

Upcoming Dates

FREE Herald subscriptions for Grade 6 families - deadline October 4th

From now until Friday, October 4, 2019 the Milwaukee Catholic Herald invites all families of 6th graders in Catholic school and/or religious education to receive a FREE one-year PRINT and ONLINE subscription to the weekly newspaper.


Why 6th grade families? Because this is an informative time for the family. Parents are nurturing and guiding their children as they enter the teen years, and we want parents to have a resource that focuses on developing the same life-long values being instilled in school and the home.


In every issue of the Milwaukee Catholic Herald, we learn, grow and share our faith as a Catholic family. What better way to bring a family closer together than with a free, one-year subscription to the Catholic Herald?
