Message from our Principal

Dear Wonderful Families,

St. Helen is a Catholic Elementary School serving students from preschool through 8th grade. We take pride in empowering our students to achieve success: academically, emotionally, and most importantly spiritually. Each element is significant to the growth of the complete person, yet the development of spirituality is the basis upon which we build. Our goal is to help each child develop self-discipline through a virtue-based restorative approach.

Virtue is a part of our everyday lessons and students are challenged to live a virtuous life through word and action. The guiding principles of Virtue Based Restorative Discipline are: devoting ourselves to living virtuously, supporting others in living virtuously, committing to constructive thoughts, words, and actions, when faced with trials or disagreements, finding solutions that promote virtue.
