Although this year has been challenging and we probably celebrated Thanksgiving differently, we are reminded to continue to give thanks and count our blessings. We are blessed and grateful for you, our faithful families, alumni, friends and supporters – to everyone who makes Saint Saviour Catholic Academy so special. I hope you and your families enjoyed a restful and much needed break. Now, we’re back in school and we are encouraging our families to remember that tomorrow, December 1, 2020 is GivingTuesday. Please know that your donations will help us to continue providing a quality Catholic education for your children.
It’s only about 13 more hours until the big day! Please join us tomorrow on #GivingTuesday by giving the gift of Catholic education to our students at Saint Saviour Catholic Academy.

Thank you to all the families who contributed to the St. Thomas Aquinas Food Pantry collection. Here is a sample of what our school community donated to this worthy cause; with lots more boxes and crates that were not included. The volunteers who work at the pantry were astonished by the good will of the families of SSCA. The pantry is now restocked and ready to make available much needed supplies to local families who are in need.

I am so proud of all of the work that faculty, staff and families have done to open our school and keep it open. Please remain diligent about completing the health screening each and every morning. We will continue to take temperatures, continuously clean and follow policies and protocols related to CDC guidelines/recommendations.
This is a school wide effort and I truly appreciate all that everyone has done!!
