  • Children receiving First Holy Communion must bring a copy of their Baptismal
    Certificate. Students in the Confirmation program must bring a copy of their Baptismal and First Holy Communion Certificates.
  • Please remind your child/children of their obligation to respect their classmates, teachers and teacher assistants.
  • Some teachers are requiring parents to sign in and sign out their child from the classroom.
  • Any person going to the classroom, other than students and teachers, must get a VisitorsPass from Virginia Holguin or the church Office.
