Welcome Letter

Bishop McNamara Families,

On behalf of the Bishop McNamara faculty, staff, and administration, I am pleased to welcome you to the 2019-20 academic year. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our returning families and offer a warm welcome to all of our new families. As we approach the 2019-20 academic year, we are once again eager to partner with you, the parents of our students, as together, we mold them into passionate, confident, lifelong learners who demonstrate competence, strength in character, and growth in their faith development.

We know that we cannot do this alone. We need, we want, and we value your involvement in your children’s education. A key component of this partnership is the communication between home and school. The Bishop McNamara Catholic School administration, faculty, and staff encourages you to contact us directly if the need arises. We also encourage you to be involved in your children’s education. Engage in a conversation with them about their studies, their assignments, and their assessments. Encourage them to be an active participant and join the many co-curricular activities that BMCS offers. Similarly, promote the concept of giving back to our community through the many service opportunities that are available to them throughout the school year.

I am excited to see what the 2019-20 academic year brings to the Bishop McNamara community! We are extremely excited to share the energy, the spirit, the Catholic tradition, and the high standards of excellence we value at Bishop McNamara Catholic School.

I look forward to working in unity with you, our families, to make Bishop McNamara Catholic School a great place to learn each and every day!

Best wishes,


Terry Granger
