Recognizing the parent as the primary teacher, SCL fosters a strong home-school relationship. Parents have access to the principal and teachers in person, by phone, and via email. There are numerous ways for parents to get involved in the school and in their child’s education.
Board of Education
The School Board furthers the overall mission of the school and acts as an advisory board. The Board of Education consists of the Principal, the Pastor, the Director of Religious Education and nine elected parishioners. Board of Education members serve a three year term.
Family Reading Night
During Catholic School week (January), SCL hosts a Family Reading Night for all school families. Parents can volunteer a number of ways – reading, crafts, snack and beverage, and donating used books.
SCL’s Guardian Angel help new SCL families adjust to school and surroundings. Guardian angels meet their families in the spring and are available year round for questions and answers ranging from school uniforms, to parking processes, to communication, to school events, and more. If you would like to be a Guardian Angel please contact Heather Luhmann or Karen Mikitin email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org respectively.
