Today, May 19, 2021, was a wonderful day-the day our St. Bernadette Statue appeared on the front lawn of our school.  The statue was erected on the front lawn of our school in memory of our beloved former principal, Ms. Pamela Eltringham, in honor of her 45 years of service to Catholic education and St. Bernadette Catholic School.  Thank you to Mr. Huber and the crew who carefully placed her on a sandstone base.  Thank you again to the many generous donors who made this project possible. 

St. Bernadette , Pray for us!

Pam Eltringham
At the time of our former principal Pam Eltringham’s passing last summer, we were not able to gather together to honor her properly. In the meantime, we have worked on a two-fold proposal.

First, we have begun to collect funds for an ongoing tuition assistance fund in her name. Her entire professional life was invested right here with our students, and everyone agrees that directing money to help them is priority #1. We would like to build this fund substantially to help ever-growing requests for assistance.

Secondly, we have commissioned a life-sized, hand-carved marble statue from Italy, of Saint Bernadette in her religious habit, to beautify our campus further and to serve as a lasting memorial to Pam for generations to come. Any donations over and above the cost of the statue will be directed to the tuition assistance fund. You can donate to both or either, however you would like.

Donations can be arranged through the school office or through the church collection. Please mark your check or envelope where you’d like the funds to be directed. Thank you in advance!

Our students put the buzzzzzzz in St. B’s!!

They are full of energy and laughter; are dedicated and intelligent.  Our students are engaged. They want to come to school, and actively participate in learning. They feel safe. They make life-long friends here. Our students know that their parents partner with teachers to support their learning, and they talk with their parents about their experiences at school. Our students are prepared to attend the schools of their choice. They become doctors, teachers, West Point Cadets, play the trumpet in the marching band or develop their own business.
