We are happy to report a healthy 2017-18 enrollment for our school of over 425 students. While we have a waiting list for PK3, we still have a few openings in PK4 and K as well as 1 – 7. We are near capacity in some grades so if you are interested in our school or if you know of someone considering our Catholic school, we encourage you to call and visit now. 764-9232
As you may know, our current principal, Mary Schmidt, will be retiring at the end of this school year. We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Rachel Hafford will become the new principal of our school.
From Mary Schmidt I am sincerely pleased and absolutely confident to hand over the reins of this beloved school to Mrs. Rachel Hafford. It is the thrill of my professional life to see my vision realized for what a wonderful school could be. We have gone as far as I know how and now it is time for Mrs. Hafford to launch it into the future. She too is a visionary and I have no doubt that this strong dedicated faculty shares the vision and will work every day beside her to keep this very special school healthy and dynamic. May God always hold SCB gently in the palm of His hands.
From Rachel Hafford I am incredibly grateful for the path that God has chosen for me. I am looking forward to serving our parish as St. Charles Borromeo School's next principal. I will passionately work with our community to ensure the spiritual, academic, and emotional growth for our students. Please keep our students, faculty, and school in your daily prayers.
Several years ago, we established the St. Charles Borromeo School Endowment Fund. Endowment gifts are to the school what retirement funds are to an individual: they represent set-aside resources for the future. Although in its infancy, our Endowment is growing. God willing, it will be a blessing to the future generations who attend our beloved SCB.
In the year of Mercy, SCB Elementary and CCD have adopted St. Alphonsus School in Denham Springs. 95% of their students, faculty, and staff lost homes and vehicles in the recent floods. Our students are connected to theirs for joint classroom projects. Our parents are also helping with hot lunches and a continuous coffee station for the staff. We are collecting Gift Cards for them to help ease the burden. Most of all, our students are happily doing God’s work by making the Corporal Works of Mercy come alive.
Whatever you do for the least of my brothers, that you do unto Me.
