Welcome to Saint Bernadette School.
Welcome to St. Bernadette School and the 2016-2017 school year! We are excited to celebrate our Faith, Education, and Community as we provide a faith-filled, safe, and happy learning environment for our students to grow, develop, and flourish.
St. Bernadette School celebrates our faith by surrounding our students with the sights and sounds of our Catholic faith. We pray throughout the day, thanking God for His many blessings on our school community. Our Virtue of the month program provides opportunities for our students to study and practice the monthly virtue through outreach efforts and service opportunities. The students who best model the virtue are nominated by their peers to be recognized as the Virtue of the Month recipient. The students attend weekly Mass and monthly Eucharistic Adoration. They participate in the Living Rosary in October and the crowning of Mary, in May.
Our faculty fosters academic excellence in the classroom with the use of technology and the support of our Learning Resource team. During this past summer, the Computer lab was upgraded with the purchase of Dell Optiplex All-In-One Computers. The faculty supplements the classroom instruction with the use of 90 Chromebooks for small or large group instruction. The Learning Resource team oversees the Scantron Performance Series testing which takes place three times a year. This computer adaptive assessment identifies strengths and areas of growth for our students in grades 3 through 7.
St. Bernadette School is more than a community. We are a family of faculty and staff, clergy, students, parents, guardians, and grandparents. During weekly Fellowship, we invite our families to pray with us and celebrate the accomplishments of our students. We are blessed by the dedication of our parent volunteers who work in the classrooms, on the playground, chaperone field trips, and support our family members who are ill or in need with meals and child-care. The vibrant Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) plans and implements family-friendly social events, such as the annual Fall Festival, Santa’s Secret Workshop, and the PTO family dance. The PTO also devotes their talents to raise funding for projects such as the newly renovated Gym, Clinic and playground.
We are grateful to the Pastor for his inspiring leadership and vision and to the Parochial Vicars and visiting Priests for their support and regular classroom visits. Our clergy are an integral part of our school family.
We are also grateful to the former members of the faculty and staff, and the alumni of St. Bernadette School who contributed to building a strong, faith-filled community. We honor them as we celebrate our traditions and create new possibilities for growth.
Again, Welcome to the new school year! We feel so blessed by the gift you are to our St. Bernadette School family. May God be with you.
