A Message from Our
Regional Superintendent

Catholic Schools Week 2024 was certainly a wonderful celebration in our PERCES Schools! The week included a wide variety of dress down days, assemblies, field trips and many fun activities. Our students participated in special liturgies and prayer services, performed acts of service and offered thanks to all those who make Catholic School Education so special. We were even blessed with seasonal temps and no snow! It was a great week!

Thank you to our amazing principals and teachers for all the planning and hard work to make it a memorable week for our students. We are blessed with tremendous PTGs in each of our school with teams of parent volunteers who helped make the week possible. Be sure to check out the socials for each of our schools to see pictures from the week!


Another hallmark of Catholic Schools Week is the annual Open Houses to kickoff registration for the 2024-2025 school year. Please be sure to spread the good news of PERCES and Catholic School Education to any family and friend searching for a faith-based education. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify. Links to Diocesan Financial Aid as well as links to all six schools can be found at www.perces.org.

May God Bless and Protect you always.

Regional Superintendent for PERCES

A Note from the PERCES Board of Directors
As we have just completed our wonderful celebration of Catholic Schools Week and move now into the season of Lent and prepare for Easter, we are so very mindful of what lies at the heart of our Catholic school ministry.  Of course academic excellence in all that we do is a priority, but always within the context of our call to become disciples of Jesus Christ with fullness of life in his Church.   As a governing board, we are always working to insure the Catholic mission of our schools and helping our children to grow more deeply in their love for God, in their faith in Jesus Christ, and in their participation in the life of the Church and in their service to others.  We must all work together to help the children and young people that we serve to become faithful, committed disciples of Jesus Christ.



Very Reverand Kris Stubna,


President of the PERCES Board of Directors
