A Message from the Principal


It was great seeing so many parents at our Annual Back to School Night!

During the classroom visits you were given a snapshot of the great academic program we have here at Saint Leo’s and the grade level expectations of your children. It is our hope at Saint Leo’s that our students are empowered by their education and pursuit of knowledge, guided by their Faith, and courageous enough to help make the world a better place. 

We are beginning a new character development program at Saint Leo’s - the Positivity Project - to assist in our endeavors for the students to build a strong character foundation and put into practice the guidance that our Gospel teachings provide. 

As indicated in prior communication, the Positivity Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping America’s youth build stronger relationships by recognizing character strengths within themselves and in others.  It is our hope that this recognition and intrinsic understanding of character will help us to continue to build students that are Faithfully strong, aware, and exhibit empathy towards all.

As part of our assessment mechanism for the Positivity Project, students, faculty, staff, and parents are asked to complete a brief survey at the beginning, middle, and end of the school year.
The link for all survey takers can be found by clicking the following link:

Parents are asked to please complete the survey by Sunday, September 25th.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and encouragement with this initiative!
