Principal’s Welcome


If you are considering a Catholic education for your child, thank you for making St. John Paul II one of your options. As an educator and a parent, I know that the years your child spends in elementary school are among the most significant in his or her life. Like you, we want your child to develop lasting friendships, Christian values and a lifelong love of learning. We believe that Catholic education serves the whole person, and that our students are successful because we offer a balance of academic, social and spiritual guidance.

Our faculty and staff work daily to provide a positive, nurturing and safe environment. This is an ideal backdrop for our rigorous, faith-based program. Students are taught personal responsibility, tolerance, respect and, in the true spirit of Catholic education, service. We are proud to acknowledge that from collecting pennies to serving the elderly in our community, our students demonstrate a deep commitment to helping others.

We recognize that Catholic education is a choice, and we look forward to working in partnership with you to provide a high-quality educational experience for your child and for the whole family. I am available to you if you have any questions at or to schedule a visit and learn more about what we can offer your child.

Peace and Progress,
Mrs. Helen Persing
