Being in a Catholic School Means to Me …..

An essay by Sarah, an 8 grade student of St Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy. Great testimony, please read carefully…

I like being in a Catholic School because I feel much safer. It is a quiet learning environment to me. All the kids are well disciplined and very respectful to each other. Being in a Catholic School is a privilege that many students don’t get. I consider myself lucky to be here. The teachers are very nice here and care about your education. They always try their hardest to grade all of our tests immediately. Catholic School has very strict rules. That’s what makes them so great. Students honor, follow, and respect them so there are no problems ever.

Anniversary of Martyrdom

Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth have played a very important role in our parish of St. Stanislaus Kostka for many years. They used to administer the parochial school, they served as teachers and leaders in the school and in the parish for many years. They still are involved in the life of the parish by helping with the school, teaching the CCD program, leading children in prayers, participating in spiritual programs and devotions.
