Dear Parents, Students, Staff, Parishioners, and Community Members,
In just a short amount of time, I have felt embraced, welcomed, and supported by teachers, staff, parents, students, and parishioners. I feel both blessed and honored to be a part of the St. Thomas Aquinas community: a place where academic excellence, pride, and faith formation are imminent.
St. Thomas Aquinas school offers a technology-enhanced curriculum, research-based instructional strategies, and a variety of content areas to teach the “whole child.” High learning standards set by the archdiocese are followed in all subject areas: language arts, math, science, social studies, Spanish, music, art, and physical education. Integrated in academics, social outreach, extracurricular activities, and everything we do is our Catholic faith.
As we move forward, I pray that the Holy Spirit speaks through us as we continue to spread the good news. Catholic traditions and celebrations will be honored; plus, a team approach in creating a compassionate atmosphere for our children to learn and grow. Want to help and take on an active role in the school community? There are many opportunities to help: volunteer on a committee, sign-up for lunch recess supervision, fundraise (box tops, SCRIP, calendar raffles), and encourage families to enroll their children.
Philippians 4:6 “Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Pray every day and count our blessings as we move ahead together as a community in faith and love.
Hello, I am Father Ed, Pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish and School. I am happy and honored to be able to teach, pray and play with your children. Our school is committed to developing disciples of Jesus Christ. Every day, our children pray together placing their needs before our God. Every week, we gather as a community of believers to praise our God, hear His Word, and to share in the mystery of faith we call the Eucharist. It is my responsibility as the pastor to extend the call to become disciples of the Lord Jesus.
God Bless You,
Fr. Ed Tlucek, OFM
Pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish and School
