Principal's Welcome

Dear Families,
As principal of Saint Leo the Great Catholic School, it is my pleasure to welcome new and returning families to the 2018-2019 school year. We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. 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 2017-2018 Parent Information Packet in its entirety. It contains important information that you will find useful this school year.

We will make every effort to keep you informed of all pertinent school news. Up-to-date information will be sent to you, via email, through our Weekly Bulletin and will appear on our school website Link. If you have questions or concerns 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.
