School Hours and Bells
The St. Clare School community believes that a Catholic school is one in which the teachings of Jesus Christ are integrated into the day-to-day curriculum and social fabric of school life. The strength of our school comes from the Catholic faith that the staff, students and community share. We aspire to have our students develop a way of living that embodies the life of Jesus Christ. The staff and students of St. Clare School have many opportunities to pray and demonstrate their Catholic faith. These opportunities include: school-wide and classroom liturgies and masses, retreats, fundraising for charities and community service. Father Frank Brewer and Father Hezuk Shroff are invited to visit the school regularly and to participate in liturgical celebrations. The St. Clare School community has a strong partnership with parish, school and home. Our parish representative serves as the liaison with our school and our parish.
