St. Dominic School marks many celebrations during the school year. As the new school year begins, we gather together as a school community to celebrate Mass on the first day of school. Students, faculty and staff all enjoy our annual Halloween costume parade and classroom parties. The “Native American” Third Graders and the “Pilgrim” First Graders learn about being grateful as they celebrate a Thanksgiving feast together.
Our Christmas season truly begins when our Second Grade students perform the story of the Nativity for parents, students and parish. Our Kindergarten, First, Third, Fourth and Fifth Graders sing like angels as they present a choral concert complete with Christmas songs from around the world.
As January draws to a close, we celebrate Catholic Schools Week with speakers, fun activities, and lessons which teach us about our Catholic Faith. This week begins with Open House where we can show off all our hard work!
Lent begins with an Ash Wednesday Mass celebrated as a school. Each Friday during Lent, we walk in Jesus’ footsteps during the Stations of the Cross as we prepare ourselves for His Resurrection.
We begin spring by celebrating the Sacrament of First Eucharist for the Second Graders. It is the highlight of the Second Grade year. Then, we join our First Grade as they lead us in the beautiful Crowning of Mary Mass on May 1st.
As we say our goodbyes and look toward summer vacation in June, the school community celebrates Mass one last time on the last day of school. What a fitting way to bring the year to an end.
