Dear parents,

Peace be with you! What a joy it has been to welcome all of you to this most blessed year at St. Alphonsus. I am pleased to announce that our incredible staff of educators has developed a rubric to guide our school expectations this year, and it is called the “FAITH” initiative. This appropriate acronym encapsulates indicators that delineate concrete expectations and behavioral skills for our students, and will help to create a school environment that builds intentional disciples for Christ! This system has been proven effective in other dioceses around the country, and our staff believes strongly in its precepts for our new year at St. Alphonsus.

CLICK HERE for a copy of the rubric to examine, and we invite you to discuss with your child(ren) throughout the school year. These indicators will drive conversations with our students about learning, citizenship, behavioral issues, and more as our year unfolds.

We look forward to building up the kingdom of God with you, and can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for us all as we grow together. Blessings to your family for a prosperous 2018-2019 school year!

Blessings and Peace,
Deacon David
