February 4, 2019


Our 2019 celebration of Catholic Schools has begun! Over the next several weeks, we will lift up and reflect on the Catholic School action themes of LEARN, SERVE, LEAD and SUCCEED. Our students, faculty and staff are gifted in each of these areas. We are grateful for the contributions that every one of them provides for our school community.


During February, we are also mindful of the positive culture actions that invite us to LOVE LEARNING and BE SELF-RELIANT.


May God bless us in our efforts to be open to new ideas and knowledge. And may teachers everywhere be blessed in their sacred vocation!



"Let us thank all those who teach in Catholic Schools. Educating is an act of love; it is like giving life." 

(Pope Francis)



St. Joseph, patron of Cotter Schools - pray for us.

Live, Jesus, in our hearts - forever.


Blessings on your day!
