The virtue of Hope, our school wide virtue of the year, has already taken us places. Right from the start, we put our hope in God knowing that he will provide for us, trusting that He will take His school where it needs to go to be successful. We are praying that you, our donors, can be part of the Hope that God provides. Through #iGiveCatholic, you have the opportunity to help students like Kendall learn about the virtue of Hope and how she can use it to guide her in her faith journey. Other students like Kendall, can learn to find their Hope in God through your donation to Catholic Education. We ask that you prayerfully consider us on November 29th by giving Catholic. More information about #iGiveCatholic can be found here. To donate, go here.

Today we celebrate Batman, Superman and Mr. Incredible, aka Mr. Larry Dinkel, Mr. Coy DeWaal and Mr. Ray Wiesner, the superheroes of the Custodian world. These gentlemen spring into action at a moment's notice and save the day more times than we can count. We marvel at their ability to keep our building in tip top shape through all the obstacles they face in a school day. There are not enough words to describe how appreciative we are of these superheroes. Larry, Coy and Ray…THANK YOU for all you do for HFE! We wouldn’t be who we are without you! And a special thank you goes out to our Appreciation Committee for making Larry, Coy and Ray feel so special on their day. Check out their door art! Wow!
