Links Headshot.jpg

Dear Families, 

As principal of Saint Leo the Great Catholic School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone to the 2022 - 2023 school year. We are excited to have all students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. As we reopen our school for all grades, appropriate safety measures will continue to be implemented in accordance with state and county guidelines. It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and a part of our Saint Leo the Great Catholic School community. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to reach his or her academic abilities while promoting age-appropriate religious, social, cultural, and physical values. 


Our faculty, staff, and pastor join me in thanking you for the opportunity to become a part of the tiny spark that begins in your child’s mind, reaches the heart and goes on to live forever in their hopes and dreams. 


The world we live in has increased the complexity of educating today’s children. Therefore, the village concept is mandatory to support success for all our students. With this in mind, I  encourage you to be involved as an active participant at Saint Leo the Great Catholic School.  Research clearly demonstrates that parent participation in your child’s school coincides with a  greater likelihood of academic success. It is essential that you start by carefully reading the 2022- 2023 Parent Informational Packet and Student-Parent Handbook (sent under separate cover).  Both documents contain important information that you will find useful this school year. Please 

make sure that all forms are completed and submitted as requested.  


We welcome our new families to Saint Leo the Great Catholic School! A New Parents  Orientation Meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 24, 2022, at 6:00 PM. This meeting will give new parents a chance to gather additional information about our school. 


We will make every effort to keep you informed of all pertinent school news in a timely manner.  Up-to-date information will be sent to you via email through our Weekly School Bulletin and will appear on our school website, It is important that you read the  Weekly School Bulletin, as it is a great resource. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher, another member of the  Administrative Leadership Team, or me. 


Thank you for your partnership in educating your child and may God bless you all.
