This week is a “wildcard” or “makeup” week. This week allows us to review and reflect on those character trait words that have been introduced thus far. It provides an opportunity for our teachers to further explore activities and discussions with their students. Please use this week to discuss with your child the different character strengths they have learned over the past several months. For more information about the Positivity Project please visit

School Board

The primary mission of the Saint Leo the Great Parish School Board is to develop, implement, monitor, evaluate and revise the strategic plan for the school. The strategic plan will embody the vision and the mission of Saint Leo the Great School. In addition, the strategic plan will contain the goals and action plans for Catholic Identity, enrollment, marketing, public relations, educational programs, finances, development and facilities as well as campus safety and security.


The Board, a board of delegated responsibility, gathers in the spirit of the Gospel to promote, sustain and ensure the ministry of quality Catholic education and formation. This is accomplished by providing vision, leadership, and accountability in collaboration with the diocese and local administrators as well as key representatives of the school, parish and business community. This is further achieved by making informed and deliberative decisions in designated areas and proposing recommendations in other areas to the Pastor or his delegate who makes the final decision.

Membership, Appointments and Terms of Office

The Saint Leo the Great Parish School Board is comprised of nine members appointed by the Pastor and Principal. No more than 3 of the members will represent the parent community. Members are appointed for a term of three years and may serve up to three consecutive terms.

There are opportunities for interested parishioners to serve as “at large” members of some of the committees listed above. If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities please e-mail us at
