Class Placement
Every year teachers receive requests to place students in particular classes for the following year. Please understand that there are many factors that are considered when preparing new class lists. We sincerely ask you to allow the professional staff at Saint Dominic School to make student placements based on their educational expertise. Please trust that the decisions are made to help the children be academically successful in a Catholic school environment. Thank you for your understanding and acceptance of our placements.

Partners in Faith

Embrace the Communion of Saints by integrating saints into your summer activities and let them inspire and protect your family as you enjoy warm-weather pursuits. See the main feature on page one for your saintly summer companions. Tapping into the profound mercy of the Father can transform your lives and bring us peace.

See practical, simple ways to bring God’s grace into your home in the main feature on page two. As parents, it can be frustrating to issue the same reminders over and over (and over!). Sometimes, letting children stew in the consequences of ignoring us is the best way to reach them, as one mom found. Read her experience in our Parent Talk on page two.
