PARENT / TEACHER CONFERENCES: Thanks to all of our students’ parents for attending Parent-Teacher conferences. We value our partnerships with parents and enjoy spending time recognizing your child’s growth, achievement and effort at school. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher(s) at school and/or contact me in the office to provide the service and support needed to recognize his/her achievements in class and address any questions or concerns you may have regarding your child’s learning at school. Thanks again for coming to school for Parent-Teacher conferences.
VETERANS DAY: The highlight of this week was our Veterans Day Program on Monday, Nov. 11. Our students and staff at St. Dominic School honored members of our families and our community who served our country in the United States Armed Forces. Thanks to our students for utilizing their time and talents to perform for our local veterans who have inspired us by their bravery, self-sacrifice, and love for our country. Thanks to Mrs. Nan Wood for her amazing leadership and service. She directed the beautiful music program, which provided an opportunity for our students to show our gratitude for the veterans’ service and respect for the price they paid for our freedoms. Thanks to Mr. Frank Cann who designed and produced an awesome and touching video of veterans and families that was shown during the program. Thanks to Fr. Tom who blessed the veterans with prayer and thanksgiving. As always, thanks to our amazing PTO and school families who provided refreshments following the event. God has blessed our country, community, and our school family with our veterans and we enjoyed sharing our time and talent to honor them at the Veterans Day Program.
