On behalf of the St. Thomas More Parish School community, let me be the first to welcome you to our website. I appreciate your interest in St. Thomas More, and I hope you will enjoy your time learning about the people, programs, and culture of our school. We are happy to have this opportunity to share with you information about our school and its particular mission and hope you will find our site both helpful and informative.
As Catholic educators, we strive always to educate the mind, heart, and spirit in the ways of Christ. We work diligently as part of the parent, child team to do what is best for our students. STM provides a challenging academic curriculum with particular emphasis on the integration of academic subject areas. Our curriculum goes beyond the required state curriculum objectives, providing our students with life lessons about social skills, appropriate decision-making strategies, and living the Golden Rule.
We believe that each child can be formed into a responsible individual with values rooted in Christian precepts. We strive to maintain a profound sense of purpose to build within each student a deep respect for God, self, others, and property. All school personnel, families, and students are challenged to lead, teach, and learn the way of accepting personal responsibility for one’s own actions and to grow in wisdom, age, and grace before God and one another. The goal of the St. Thomas More experience is to open the mind to knowledge, the heart to service, and the soul to God’s presence in creation.
As Principal, I am committed to both the spiritual and intellectual growth of each student. St. John Paul II once said, “As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.” At St. Thomas More, we are dedicated to our students and their families. We believe that it is only by working together with the guidance of the Holy Spirit that we will fulfill our particular mission.
This website offers a comprehensive view of St. Thomas More, but to truly experience the distinctive spirit of our school, we invite you to visit us. I thank you for your consideration.
Yours in Christ,
