A Message from the PresidentΒ 

Dear Nativity Community,

I hope this message finds you well and filled with the same sense of pride and accomplishment that permeates our school community here at Nativity. As we reflect on the progress and achievements of our students, I am thrilled to share with you the remarkable news that an outstanding 76% of our student body has achieved honor roll status in the current school year. This remarkable feat speaks volumes about the dedication of our students, the tireless efforts of our faculty, and the unwavering support of individuals like you who continue to champion our mission of academic excellence.

In celebrating this milestone, we are reminded of the transformative impact of your generosity. Your contributions have enabled us to provide invaluable resources, innovative programs, and personalized attention to nurture the academic and personal growth of every student.

As we continue to build upon this foundation of success, I am excited to extend an invitation to our upcoming event, Nativity In Bloom – Garden of Dreams on Saturday, April 27. It is through events like these that we can further strengthen our community, forge lasting partnerships, and secure the resources needed to propel our students towards even greater heights of achievement. Join us as we come together to celebrate our past successes, envision our future endeavors, and make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students.

Your continued support is indispensable, and we are immensely grateful for your steadfast commitment to our cause. Collectively, we can inspire future leaders and agents of change. Thank you for being an essential part of our journey towards excellence.

Be blessed!

James C. Smith
