Note from the Principal's Desk

Dear St. Dom’s Families & Friends,

I hope that everyone had an enjoyable Winter Break. As we observe Ash Wednesday and enter the Lenten season, we also enter an 8-week stretch of full school weeks. It is a great time for students to get into a good rhythm academically with limited interruptions. To help preserve this time and help us maintain an orderly learning environment, please make every effort to ensure that your student is in school, on time, within dress code, and ready to learn every school day. Students should remain in school for the full school day with the fewest exceptions.

Congratulations to the boys’ indoor track & field team for the 5th place finish at the Class B State Championship over break. Junior Liam Levasseur helped lead the 4 x 800 relay team to a first place finish! Good luck to Liam and Owen Mitchell as they move on to New England’s this weekend in Boston!

Also, our boys’ hockey team will play Edward Little High School in a state tournament quarterfinal game Friday night at 7:00pm at the Colisee. GO SAINTS!

God Bless,

J. P. Yorkey, Principal
