Dear St. Ferdinand Families,
Greetings, Saludo, Pozdrowienie, & Pagbati!
Welcome to the 2017/2018 school year. I am very honored to begin my second year at St. Ferdinand School as your principal.
The theme set forth by the Office of Catholic Schools is “We Are One Body”. We are one in Christ; we are all brothers and sisters. Therefore we all need to work together to make St. Ferdinand School the very best both morally and educationally. I have no doubt that we can accomplish this goal. One of the keys to success is open communication. My door is always open to you. We are all on this journey together. We all want what is best for “our children”. It is that spirit of oneness that makes us great!
Please keep in mind the following dates:
Wednesday August 16: Grade 2 to 8, Meet & Greet for New Parents & Students at 7:00 PM in the Activity Center
Friday, August 18th: Student Orientation, 9:00 to 11:00 AM (For PreK 3 & 4, Kindergarten and First Grade)

We ask the Lord for his love and support in working toward our goal of making St. Ferdinand School the best it can be, and in bringing out each student’s highest potential.
