Pam Eltringham
I would like to ask everyone to say a prayer of thanks for the 45years of service that our former principal, Pam Eltringham, gave to St. Bernadette School. Our school community will miss her quiet presence in our building each day and her steady hand at keeping our school “buzzing along.” May God grant her eternal rest in heaven.

St. Bernadette School is pleased to announce the formation of the Pamela Eltringham Memorial Tuition Assistance Fund. Pam served St. Bernadette for 45 years, first a classroom teacher, and then as Principal. Her dedication to making Catholic education available to all students, will be carried on through this memorial fund. Monetary donations are welcome.

Please send donations to the school office along with your fond memories of Pam.

About Saint Bernadette School
St. Bernadette Catholic School was built in 1965, and is surrounded by six acres of green space. We are a Preschool through 5th grade program, and an integral part of the St. Bernadette Parish community. We have a strong faith-based tradition which began with the Franciscan Sisters of Stella Niagara, NY. We continue that tradition. The community of St. Bernadette School is committed to developing the whole child. Students grow in the ability to love through an awareness of God’s love, an acceptance of oneself and respect for others. Our students develop characteristics of leadership that enable them to live out their commitment as Christians in an ever changing world. St. Bernadette Catholic School strives to be child and family centered.

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.

Our students know that we want them to succeed.
