After nine years of elementary education our eighth grade students have graduated and are moving on to the area high schools; Marin catholic, Saint Ignatius, Saint Vincent, Marin School of the Arts, San Marin STEM, Novato High School, and Drake High School. The entire student body attended their beautiful Baccalaureate Mass. During the evening Commencement Ceremony, we recognized the graduates, honored their parents, and conferred diplomas. We are proud of each one of these students who, as a class, have always been faithful and true to themselves, each other, and their faith. Congratulations to the Class of 2015.
I wish you all a relaxing and enjoyable summer, taking time to just be with one another. You will receive a summer mailing in preparation for the upcoming school year. Your kindness and support have been a personal blessing this year. Thank you for all you bring to the school community.
Congratulations to St. Isabella School Class of 2014 - 2015
We will be saying good-bye to Mrs. Carol Nienaber who has served Saint Isabella School for 14 years. She will be missed and before she leaves she has a few words of wisdom to share.
How can my first kindergarten class be heading off to college in fall? Where has the time gone? Year by year—day by day—it seems to have slipped by, but not without notice, accomplishments, D-slips, popsicles, and lots of fun with students, parents, and friends. So many memories to hold onto—second grade kickball games, First Communion Retreats, Junie B. Jones, along with the adventures, Jack & Annie and their Magic Tree House. Sharing in kindergarten, beginning kickball, ABC books, and introducing 5 year olds to “real school.” These I will treasure forever.
Everyday, side-by-side, we learned together, your children and I. Sharing a classroom with Mrs. Thomas and Mrs. Zidek was an experience every teacher should have.
I will miss the community at Saint Isabella School----I will even miss traffic duty!
We are a close family that supports one another through family hardships while continuously teaching children how to become caring, happy, and eager citizens of the world.
I thank everyone for the support, love, and friendship I received and wish all the best to my friends and family at Saint Isabella.
I’m off to Encinitas and the grandchildren…Bye for now…..
FACTS TUITION MANAGEMENT:
For the 2015-2016 school year EVERY family will have to create a new Facts Tuition Management account. All accounts for the 2014-2015 school year
automatically roll over. Please follow this link
or click the Facts Tuition Mgt link on the home page of our school website to create your 2015-2016 tuition plan.

A boy’s V-necked sweater and girl’s cardigan sweater will be
required for the formal dress uniform for the 2015-2016 school year
. The sweaters will
not replace the navy school sweatshirt
, which will remain a valued part of the uniform. You can order them from our uniform provider Classic Design,
; If you are purchasing shorts, pants, or shirts outside of the uniform company, be sure they follow the uniform requirements, which are clarified in the school handbook.
As the school year winds down, the freedom of lazy summer days beckons. However, a total break isn't always appropriate for every child. For some kids, summer break can really mean a loss of progress on essential skills. In whatever form it might take, keeping up or catching up during summer break can be essential to overall academic success. And, most importantly, be sure your children are
reading each day
. Have them share their reading with you. Take trips to the local library. Form book clubs with friends. Read a book to your child.
Saint Isabella recommends the
Summer Skills Books
for your consideration. This program is well researched and helps students in grades K-high school
over the summer break. These materials can be previewed and ordered on-line and/or by phone: www.summerskills.com
