Keeping up with Calvert: Marinis monthly memo

Expecting excellence at all facets of education, I am very proud to update the Tiffin community on the progress and growth at Calvert Catholic Schools. Through the publicity and support of our area news and social media outlets, we have been busy sharing our good news.

Catholic Schools Week (CSW) has allowed us to experience the support and generosity of the many businesses that sponsored the CSW Sunday insert. The value of a Catholic education was described very positively in Mrs. Price’s guest editorial. We were blessed to have two priests from India to con-celebrate CSW all-school mass, along with our three local priests, exemplifying the global and universal aspect of our Faith. Global competencies are truly being infused into our learning environment.

We are actively reaching out to provide opportunities to visit, tour, socialize and consider enrolling. We have an upcoming “Night in the Skybox” for families to enjoy watching a basketball game, eating pizza, and gathering information in a special area above the high school gym February 7th at 6:00 p.m. We also have a perfect way to introduce and acclimate your child to the Calvert elementary environment. We invite parents of Preschool and Kindergarten age children and their parents to Open House Thursday, February 27th from 6:00-7:30 pm at the elementary building.

We continue to be blessed by enhancements to various scholarship opportunities to help our families afford a Calvert education. While we strive to keep the cost of tuition low, I do believe there is a fundamental value in the investment our families make that highly impacts their children’s educational journey. We are committed to work with every family individually to find a path towards Catholic education. Call us to find out more.

The continued vision for Calvert is an expectation of excellence in all aspects of the educational formation. We are not perfect, however we will intensify our academic curriculum and strive to educate the student not only inside the classroom, but also form them in service and kindness through our community. All subject areas will be infused with the principles of our faith, as we develop and strengthen the bridge between knowledge and faith.

The Fine Arts curriculum is strong and productive. High School Musical Jr. will be the spring musical scheduled for March 20-21. Art students were recognized highly for their submitted projects to the Tiffin Art Guild competition. Projects included are 3D Art projects of aluminum and cardboard sculptures, pencil, charcoal, ink and art pastel drawings, scratchboard, photography and digital design. The students will be submitting these projects to the Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition.

I close in saying with all sincerity, it is a great honor/privilege to be a Calvert Seneca in Tiffin, Ohio. May God continue to bless our community as we educate our students to build a better tomorrow!
