Note from the Principal's Desk

Dear St. Dom’s Families & Friends,

As we continue through an exciting time of college acceptances and decisions for our seniors, I’d like to remind all of our seniors and their families that we still have numerous scholarship opportunities that are available with various application deadlines. I encourage all seniors to stop by the Student Service’s Office for scholarship information and set-up individual meetings with our College Advisor, Mrs. Peggy DeBlois to review specific opportunities. I also encourage our juniors to meet with Mrs. DeBlois to check in on their college planning as the spring of the junior year is an ideal time to begin visiting schools of interest. Mrs. DeBlois will be taking the entire junior class to New England Association of College Admission Counselors’ college fair in May.

Enjoy Winter Break. Spring is coming!


John Patrick Yorkey, Principal
