Principal's Message

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Hello Everyone,

 We are more than half way through the school year here at Mater Dolorosa School. The Lenten season is upon us all giving us time for reflection, forgiveness and a new beginning for our spirits. Our students are in the midst of their IOWA Tests which will reflect their abilities and strengths.  Our success follows our mission statement for the school, which is to follow the spirit of St. Francis, educate the hearts and minds of the next generation of leaders. We accomplish our mission by living our Catholic identity and providing our students with academic excellence. We continue to keep pace with technological advances and align ourselves with the curricular demands of an ever changing world.  

Our outstanding faculty who are committed to their students, continue to provide rigorous classroom learning. They nurture their students and instill in them the desire to succeed in the classroom and beyond by exploring more about topics on their own. The students continue to engage in community projects to help those around us, they share the responsibility of making their community service projects meaningful and successful.

Another very important link to our success with your children is your parental cooperation and partnership in sharing the goals of our school mission, by promoting a culture of educational excellence and maintaining financial stability in order to ensure longevity. Teachers and parents share the same goals of wanting the children to be prepared to have successful high school careers as well as to be lifelong learners in our ever-growing global community.

The next few months will come and go very quickly but it is important for students to continue to focus on their daily studies until the last test is taken their last school day of the year has come. Thank you for entrusting your children into our care.

God bless you all and keep you and your family safe,

Mrs. Linda Rex
