Beginning March 5, Mrs. Knob’s First Grade class is sponsoring a friendly competition for the classes in our school.  Each classroom will have a baby bottle (or more if needed!) to fill with cash and change to assist the Knights of Columbus in their project to purchase an ultrasound machine for the Life Choices Family Resource Center.

Send your spare change to school with your student to help this very worthy cause. 

Soup and Stations of the Cross

Please join us during lunch on Holy Thursday, April 17th, for our annual Soup and Stations celebration.  The students will be leading us in the devotional followed by potluck soup and socializing.  If you are willing to bring a soup to the potluck, please sigh up on the sheet in the school foyer in advance.  Please bring it in your own crock pot if possible.


Our annual track meet with other private schools on the Western Slope and with home school students will be held again at Stocker Stadium in Grand Junction. 

5th through 8th graders - Thursday, April 24

1st through 4th graders - Friday, April 25

Mark your calendars.  We need as many parents as possible to attend and help in the stands with all students.  This is a great event!


Please go to our High School page on this site to find out more about our exciting new endeavor.  Keep watching.  More information will be posted as it comes available.
