"St. Irene Catholic School is a community where Christian values and attitudes are part of our daily routine. It is our responsibility to provide opportunities for children to grow spiritually, academically, morally, socially and physically into responsible individuals. We provide a well rounded curriculum that is geared toward individual abilities and talents.
Constructive interaction and clear communication among students, staff, and parents are essential for direction, growth and evaluation. We ask each parent, in principle and in fact, to fully support the policies of St. Irene School. Together, we will assist the Christian growth of self-discipline and responsible students eager to serve God, family and community.
"...Since parents have conferred life on their children, they have a most solemn obligation to educate their offspring. Hence, parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educator is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it. For it revolves on parents to create a family atmosphere so animated with love and reverence of God and men that a well-rounded personal and social development will be fostered among the children. Hence, the family is the first school of those social minutes which every society needs. It is particularly in the Sacrament of Matrimony, according to the faith received in Baptism, to have knowledge of God, to worship Him, and to love their neighbor. Here, too, they gain their first experience of wholesome human companionship and the Church. Finally, it is through the family that they are gradually introduced into civic partnership with their fellow men, and in the People of God. Let the parents, then, clearly recognize how vital a truly Christian family is for the life and development of God’s own people..."
