A Message from Our Principal
Season’s Greetings St. Kieran Catholic School Families and Parish,
I want to take a moment to share with you some important updates and information here at our amazing Catholic school.
We are excited to share that we are preparing for our 2024–2025 enrollment. Please share this exciting news with your friends and family. We are opening up our enrollment early this year (January). We are offering scheduled school tours and are blessed to have many interested prospective new families reach out.
St. Kieran has been awarded the CalOES School Safety Grant through Homeland Security. This fully funded grant will guide our efforts and upgrade our campus safety efforts. Church and School campus-wide fencing has begun. This has been a very lengthy process in the works and now has come to fruition. A state-of-the-art definition camera surveillance system will be installed campus-wide as well in the coming weeks. Each classroom’s phone and intercom system has also been upgraded. In addition, our school safety team has completed its training over the past four months.

Academic Updates: Our Middle School Parents now have access to their scholar’s grades and coursework. Mrs. Tomasello sent home communication with directions on how to access it. Throughout this fall, we have engaged our students in a wide range of academic activities and projects. We encourage you to continue to support your child's learning by ensuring they complete their homework assignments, engage in reading, and maintain good study habits. Believe it or not, a good night’s sleep is a must and so is a healthy diet. These essentials greatly contribute to school success and good moods, too.
I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for your continued support and partnership with our school. Your involvement in your child's education is invaluable, and it plays a significant role in their success. We truly believe that a strong partnership between school and home is essential for creating a positive and productive Christian learning environment.
This school year, we will continue to focus on academic excellence, character Catholic development, and fostering a sense of community within our school. We have exciting plans and educational opportunities in store for your children, and we can't wait to embark on this journey of growth and discovery together.
Thank you St. Kieran families and parish for your continued support and prayers!
Dr. Melody Belcher
