Message from the Principal

Dear Parents and Community of Manhattan Catholic Schools,

Our Faith, Our Family, Our Future

We have kicked off the Capital Campaign for the school and Church.  We have surpassed our Celebration goal of $750,000 with the kind generosity of the leadership team.  We are quickly approaching the Challenge goal of $1,750,000.  Of course, our Miracle goal of $1,900,000 is achievable if everyone can contribute to our campaign.  Please help us reach the stated goals with any contribution you can manage.  We know it is a sacrifice, but the deferred maintenance, security and technology improvements are necessary for our learning environment.

There has been many things happening at Manhattan Catholic Schools the first quarter.  We have successfully completed our first MAP test for our students.  This test will allow us to monitor the academic progress of our kids better during the year.  We will take this assessment three times during the year.  We also took the ITBS tests which give us a comparative snapshot of student achievement compared with others across our nation.  Of course, state assessments will be conducted during the Spring.

I wish to thank the parents that attended Parent/Teacher Conferences.  Communication is essential so we can share in the success of your children.  If you didn't get to take our three surveys for AdvancED accreditation, I send links home so you could do them at home.  Please complete them if you can.  Some parents only took one of the three surveys, so if you could complete the remaining two it would be appreciated.  Your input is important to our school improvement.

After Halloween this week comes Buttons & Bows, Thanksgiving and Advent Season.  The year is going fast!

God Bless You All!

Mr. Hulshoff
