Planning for the Distribution of Instructional Materials and Tech Devices

Saint Thomas Aquinas Distance Learning Program

The distribution of the instructional materials and tech devices is the next step in the full implementation of the Saint Thomas Aquinas Distance Learning Program.

St. Thomas the Apostle Appoints new Assistant Principal

Dear Families,

I am happy to announce that we have an assistant principal appointed to our staff.  Mr. Philip Heide has been working with me these past few weeks preparing the building for reopening and has joined the St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Academy family.  We are very happy to have him as our newest member.

Mr. Heide was the former principal of our neighboring school, St. Mary Gate of Heaven.

Welcome, Mr. Heide to St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Academy.

 

Me alegro de informarles que tenemos un director asistente como nuevo miembro de nuestro personal. El señor Philip Heide estaba trabajando conmigo estas últimas semanas preparando el edifico para la reapertura y se ha reunido con la familia de la Academia de Sto. Tomás el Apóstol.  Estamos muy contentos de tenerlo como nuestro miembro más reciente.

El señor Heide fue el director anterior de nuestra escuela vecina St.Mary Gate of Heaven.

Bienvenido, Sr. Heide a la Academia de Sto. Tomás el Apóstol!

Dr. Piro
