Radio show guest Fr. Jim Parker fr_parkerconveys the meaning behind the loving atmosphere of the school and how the children are encouraged to be “living tabernacles”. Mike Puttin, Interim Principal and Assistant Principal, explain how the children experience an exceptional feeling at home here, even for those that are new. Two teachers, Kelly Carlson and Lisa Baier explain the philosophy that “We all have Christ in us.” This value is instilled in the children’s hearts. Special guest Mary DeBlock who is an original teacher from the school, speaks about the approach they take to “Educate the Whole child”. Parents and students engage in a light-hearted game competition to round out the show. This inspiring show is valuable for many parents and other schools to listen to in order to hear more about their outstanding methods of teaching.  These methods have been found to be so effective academically and spiritually.
