Just a reminder that our Opening School Year Mass takes place at St. Mary of the Visitation Church on Thursday, September 28 at 10:00 am. All Are Welcome to Attend.

If you have any concerns about your child walking to and from Church, you are to direct this to your child’s teacher.

An Evening in Kenya Invite
Dear Families of St. Elizabeth Catholic School,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome all of you back to St. Elizabeth Catholic School for the 2017-18 school year as we journey into another year of faith and wonderful learning opportunities for our students. Thanks to all our staff for getting our school back in great shape. I personally would like to welcome all new families to our school community and wish departing families all the best in their new journeys. We presently have an enrolment of 380 students.
This year we look forward to promoting and creating activities and initiatives which support academic achievement and the faith formation of our students. Here at St. Elizabeth Catholic School, we consistently strive to present and support a vibrant model of Catholic education for all our students, families and community members. We exemplified this well last year as we celebrated our “25th Year in Catholic Education”. This year our system and schools focus is on the 2017-18 theme, “People of Faith” in keeping with our Diocesan theme of ‘Mercy” and many of our school initiatives will support this endeavor. Make sure to keep connected to the variety of communications that come home each month as we have a very interactive School Council that wishes to engage you in the many initiatives it conducts throughout the year.
I look forward to meeting you in the weeks and months ahead and have a successful 2017-2018 school year.
Be well and God Bless.
Mr. L. Pellizzari
