A letter from the Principal
Dear St. Philip School Families,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are excited your family chose St. Philip School to provide your child(ren)’s education! The staff and I look forward to working with you to continue to build upon the high-quality academic foundation that you’ve come to expect from us. Once again, St. Philip School was named a Four Star School and earned an “A” rating from the Indiana Department of Education. To achieve that accomplishment is an immense accolade for the student body and staff for all their hard work - something everyone should be proud of.
Last year, we launched the Leader in Me program at St. Philip School. Leader in Me teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. Our students embraced the program and showed great growth in their leadership skills as they adopted the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. We look forward to continuing to develop and recognize our young leaders this year.
This year the Diocese of Evansville is celebrating its 75th anniversary and has adopted the theme “Christ - Yesterday, Today and Forever: 75 Years of Living the Faith.” To complement the diocesan theme, we chose “Come near to God, and He will come near to you.” (James 4:8) as our guiding scripture this year. We will encourage the students to continue developing a strong relationship with Christ that you as parents have fostered at home.
We are excited to start the 2019-2020 school year and hope you are looking forward to a great year too!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
