A Message from Our Principal, Mr. Derbyshire

Dear St. John Neumann Families and Friends,

Our school year is off to a fantastic start here at St. John Neumann Catholic School! I personally am honored to serve as principal to a group of such persevering, joyful students, a dedicated and enthusiastic staff, and a supportive school community.

As I’m sure you have noticed, our school is flourishing! This year, our enrollment has continued to rise. We have also welcomed a few new faculty and staff members, who bring their own talents and charisms to our unique community. As we move forward with great excitement through the fall, I encourage you to continue to pray for our students, faculty, and staff. Each individual at St. John Neumann is an essential part of the incredible faith-filled education that we provide.

Our theme for this year is, “In Him we live and move and have our being.” Let us continue to keep Christ our Savior at the center of our lives and love for each other at the heart of our Mission. Thank you for sharing your children with us. Best wishes to everyone for a happy and successful school year. Thank you for your continued support.
