MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Our theme for the 2015-16 academic year, Making a Difference, reflects our commitment to Gospel Values. The students, faculty and staff at St. Helen School are making a difference by their dedication to their studies and their Christ-like living.
We are so grateful to Mr. Ken Moses, Mr. Hank Milnark and all the many volunteers who have worked so hard this summer to renovate our former church into “The Sister Christin Wing”, which will be dedicated on October 11th following the 11:00 a.m. Mass.
Thank you, also, to the many donors who are making this project possible. If you would like to donate to “The Sister Christin Wing” and have your name included on the plaque, please send your contribution to St. Helen School by September 30, 2015.
We invite all new students to our Orientation on Friday, August 28th from 4:00-4:30 p.m. and all returning students from 4:30-6:00 p.m. All new and returning students and their families are invited to our PAC Family Outdoor Movie Night, featuring The Incredibles at 7:00 p.m. on August 28th.
We are excited to welcome all of our students back to school on Monday, August 31st, at 7:45 a.m.
