Some history…Just a handful of months after the first Mass celebrated in St. Isidore Church, the Parish expanded its reach of service with the addition of a grade school. The goal of the church was always to serve the needs of the community. And its parish families knew the importance of practicing their faith, not just on Sunday. They were seeking more than academic values for their children. They wanted the learning experience to be rounded out by the teaching of spiritual values and social growth, while the foundational principles of their Catholic Christian faith were incorporated. One where Jesus was at the center of every aspect of development. And so, St. Isidore Catholic School opened its doors on September 18th, 1921, to once again, meet the needs of the parish community.
Fun Fact: Ironically, our school was incepted at the same time of the Spanish flu pandemic, 100 years ago. What an interesting parallel? And look at how far we have come!
We are so proud of our students, families, faculty and parish members for the evolution and support of St. Isidore Catholic School. Through this century of growth and advancement, our roots and treasured traditions have enabled us to embrace new innovations which will launch us into the next 100 years. So we remember and we humbly thank you, our parish family, for your devotion to our school. YOU are the true examples of discipleship!
Looking ahead, Gloria Lorusso
