Headmaster's Advent Message

  Dear Families, As excitement begins to build leading up to Christmas, it is appropriate and healthy to pause for a few reasons. Happy New Year! Advent marks the beginning of our liturgical year. The Church fittingly places a season filled with waiting, expecting, and hoping at the start of a new year. This serves as a reminder that our lives are but a pro-longed period of waiting before we meet our benevolent, magnanimous, and loving Creator. And during the hustle and bustle of what has become an uncomfortably hectic season, it is critical that we all take a moment to reflect on where we are...

Lessons Learned From the Smarter Balanced Test Results

Dear Families, The results of the new standardized test were released this week, accentuating a rather divisive conversation among educators, parents, and legislators. Headlines declare the results indicate 44% of graduates are not "college or career ready". The NH Commissioner of Education went so far as to say the test results are not news; after all, using the results to measure success against Smarter Balance's predecessor - NECAP - is like comparing apples and oranges. The Board of Education is quick to state that these results are not surprising. Virginia Barry and the NH DOE classified...

Virtue of the Month - Foresight

The Virtue of Foresight Just as God in His Divine Providence foresees man’s needs and plans for them, man too needs to be provident—to be far-seeing, to think ahead, to be mindful of consequences, and to realize that the outcome of the future depends on the choices of today. Created in God’s image, man imitates God by providing for others and acting with prudence about the future with the virtue of foresight. For example, God’s all-wise plan for life--envisioning a child’s needs--...

Back to School Message from the Headmaster

Dear Families, First off, I just want to thank you all for your patience and positive feedback as we begin another school year. On the first day of school the student body gathered to pray a rosary. As we were praying the rosary, I asked Our Lady for inspiration. It occurred to me that I had nothing prepared to say to the students, and then suddenly it hit me - dynamics and dignity. No school year is ever the same as before. Each new year features different dynamics: new classroom arrangements, new faces, and new phases of maturation. In spite of outward changes, the inward dignity of each chi...
