Welcome to St. Ignatius School,
The start of the school year really is the most wonderful time of the year! The teachers have been back at the school busily getting ready for their new group of students, and the office is open and accepting new registrations every day. Several teachers have new teaching assignments and several classrooms have gotten makeovers! I would like to welcome three new members of our faculty: Mrs. Siray in grade 1, Mr. Kjell in grade 3 and Mr. Eichel in physed.
Our maintenance team has been hard at work over the summer. Summer projects include a new security system at the front entrance, new carpets in Kindergarten, grades 1, 2, 6, 7 & 8. The grade 7 & 8 classrooms had renovations and now have new mobile storage units and other upgrades. Grade 8 has all new furniture; students will love the collaborative atmosphere. We continue to expand our ability to infuse technology in every classroom; this summer Mrs. Villa purchased a class set of Chrome Books for use in the classrooms. Also completed over the summer was the installation of new smart boards in grades 1 & 6, and projectors have been added to the science lab and music room.
We are so grateful to our incredible SISPAC; because of them, the “Lion’s Den finally has a brand new state-of-the-art scoreboard, and the Physed program has over $3,500.00 in new equipment.
The beginning of the school year is always rejuvenating. We are all so excited for the upcoming school year to get underway. I wish all of our students and families all the best for 2019-2020!
Peace and Prayers,
Mrs. Jeannine Pistawka
Principal, St. Ignatius School
