Dear St. Clare Family and Friends,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am delighted to welcome you to St. Clare. We are a Catholic, parish-school community, rooted in Gospel values and dedicated to the spiritual and educational development of the whole child.

Our dedicated faculty and staff work in partnership with parents, who we recognize as the primary educators, to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to flourish: developing their social, academic, and emotional well being. In addition to core classes, we prepare our students for their future careers by enhancing our strong academic program with the latest in technology tools for learning, along with providing weekly Music, Art, Library and Physical Education classes. CYO sports provide wonderful opportunities to develop sportsmanship skills and interact with other community members. Go Dragons!

We draw upon the resources of our community to support and enhance the educational experience, as well as encourage and provide opportunities for our students to reach out and serve the community. Our program is directed toward the mastery of academic skills, while allowing students the opportunity to develop a range of individual talents and abilities. Our learning specialists work in partnership with our faculty and parents to meet the individual needs of our students, providing an additional layer of support. We model respect for others, and we teach the children strategies to peacefully resolve conflict and overcome the challenges of daily life. We are committed to the professional growth of our staff as educators, improving the skills that allow them to reach and nurture their students.

Once again, welcome. Please call or email if you have any questions. I am happy to tell you all about the school and the fine students we are blessed to help educate.

Sincerely,

Mr. Chris Harris
