From The Principal

Welcome Letter

Welcome to Bishop McNamara Catholic School! We the faculty, staff, and students alike pray and work together daily. The goal for each and every one of the Bishop McNamara students is to assist them along the various steps of their faith journey, as well as assisting them to acquire the necessary skills to succeed and to make an impact in our ever-changing and complicated world. We do this with high expectations, hard work, and through prayer!

We are committed and continually strive towards being a leader in Catholic education by providing a challenging, data-driven curriculum that is infused with Catholic values, taught by highly trained faculty members, which provides all of our students the opportunity to meet their highest potential.

I am extremely excited as we enter the third year as Bishop McNamara Catholic School and the opportunities it will present to our school community. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back all of our returning families and certainly offer a warm welcome to all of our new families. We are extremely pleased and excited to mutually share the energy, the spirit, and the Catholic tradition of Bishop McNamara Catholic School.

God's blessings,

Terry Granger
