A Message from the PresidentΒ 

Dear Nativity Community,

As we embark on our 2023-2024 school year filled with excitement and promise, I am thrilled to share some incredible news with each and every one of you. The results are in, and I am delighted to announce that an impressive 79% of our middle school students have achieved Honor Roll status in the first grading period!

This outstanding accomplishment is not just a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students but also a reflection of the collaborative spirit that defines our Nativity family. It is truly heartening to witness the collective effort of our students, teachers, parents, and staff in fostering an environment where academic excellence thrives.

This achievement marks a significant milestone in the history of our school, and I couldn’t be prouder of what we have accomplished together. It speaks volumes about our commitment to fostering a love for learning, cultivating a supportive community, and nurturing the intellectual curiosity of our students.

As we celebrate this remarkable success, let us also use it as inspiration to propel us forward into the rest of the school year. The journey has just begun, and I have no doubt that with our unwavering dedication and passion, we will continue to achieve great heights.

Thank you to each member of our Nativity community for contributing to this success. Your hard work and commitment are the driving forces behind our achievements, and I am excited to see what we can accomplish together in the coming months.

Here’s to a fantastic start and to the many more accomplishments that lie ahead!

Warm regards,

James C. Smith
