Dear SSCA Parents/Guardians,
I hope that everyone has had a wonderful summer. It is my pleasure to welcome first through eighth grade students to another great year at St. Saviour Catholic Academy. On Monday, September 11th, we will be joined by the Nursery, Pre-K and Kindergarten students. We are all excited to have the students back in the classrooms and hallways as they are full of enthusiasm and an excitement for learning. It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected and a part of the SSCA family. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his/her academic abilities in order to reach his/her true potential.
As I walked around our school this past week visiting each classroom, I was so proud of our teachers and students. It was wonderful to see how much effort they were putting forth. Each classroom was busy throughout the day creating memorable moments of learning with a clear focus on student success. We have had a seamless transition through the first few days of school and I look forward to the year ahead.
Lastly, I would like to welcome the following new faculty and staff to the SSCA family:
Ms. Deanna Feuerbach–Early Childhood Music
