Your Donation Means So Much...
2022-2023 Annual Fund
As the season of giving is upon us, we hope that the St. Bernadette School Annual Fund Gift letter finds you well. As a school comprised of religious and ethnic differences, we share Christ’s love with those who emulate the values we adhere to and embrace.
Each year St. Bernadette School, raises funds to help bridge the $300,000 gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of educating a student. A strong educational foundation begins at the elementary level where children learn how to learn. Throughout their experience at St. Bernadette School, students are taught the importance of a strong work ethic, an unwavering moral compass, and a deep understanding of community. In addition, they are provided with a challenging, quality, and rigorous academic curriculum. As we continue to navigate through the COVID -19 pandemic, St. Bernadette School’s faculty and staff continues to work tirelessly to create and maintain a COVID-19 safe environment for all students and remains committed to providing each child with the skills necessary to become life-long learners.
During the 2020-2021 academic year, St. Bernadette School successfully held in person learning for all those families who wished to send their children to school. Teachers expanded their instructional expertise for those students who remained remote. Many of the effective changes have carried over to the current year and continue to enhance the St. Bernadette School learning experience. In addition, St. Bernadette School has welcomed new faculty who have enriched the school community across grade levels. The resource department currently has four new staff specialists who focus on reading and math development at various grade specific levels. Furthermore, not only has the school been able to reinstate the technology program for students in grades pre-school through eight, we have added age-appropriate coding instruction beginning with our youngest three-year-old students. We continue to increase curriculum offerings, maintain highly competitive standards and thrive as a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School of Academic Excellence.
This Christmas season, as you reflect upon what you and your family are thankful for, we ask that you consider a gift to St. Bernadette School. Some may think that only large gifts are important, but every gift of any size makes a difference. Donations to the Annual Fund are not only tax-deductible, they help create unrestricted possibilities, which enable us to meet the demands of the most pressing needs of our students. The gift of education is forever. Your gift is more than a check; it is a commitment to your faith in Catholic schools.
Thank you and may God bless you and your family.
