A Message from the Principal


I hope you have had a fun and relaxing summer break!

A number of renovations have occurred while school has been out of session. We are excited to introduce our newly renovated cafeteria with an updated floor and ceiling, and new paint colors to brighten up our students’ snack and lunch experience.

We have also added a third second grade class to accommodate our growing enrollment, while maintaining an effective student to teacher ratio.

As summer vacation comes to an end, please remember that summer reading lists, middle school math packets, as well as our upcoming year’s supply lists have been posted under the “Summer Assignments” quick link on the school website.

We are proud of our achievements from last year and look forward to raising the bar for the spiritual, academic, and personal growth of our students.


Enjoy the rest of the summer!


Cornelius Begley

First Communion is a time of transformation and community
As one of three Sacraments of Initiation, which include Baptism and Confirmation, First Holy Communion is part of the child’s journey of faith into the Church. As a sacrament, the child’s first reception of Holy Eucharist is a communal celebration, transforming not only the child’s life, but the life of the child’s immediate family and parish family, as well.
Saint Leo the Great Re-enacts the Stations of the Cross
Saint Leo the Great School eighth-grade students recently participated in the live visual re-enactment of The Stations of the Cross. The performance was directed by the school’s fourth grade teachers, Ada McCarthy and Elaine Berman. “Our eighth-graders serve as role models for our younger students,” McCarthy said. “This is a great way for them to set a positive example for the younger students.”
