Dear Parents,

Thank you for considering St. Gerald Catholic School for the education of your children. We take PRIDE in our school! We have a strong faith-filled environment along with being an accredited school with high academic standards.

At St. Gerald Catholic School you will experience a true partnership as teachers, students, parents, volunteers, parishioners, alumni, and community members work together to ensure that all children receive an education that nurtures the mind, body, and spirit.

St. Gerald Catholic School helps all children prepare to live a faith-filled life by being part of a Christian community. Since the school first opened in 1959, St. Gerald has been a place where Gospel values are modeled and woven into the fabric of each school day.

Many parents who choose Catholic education for their children make sacrifices to afford the cost. Often their choice means going without some of the material things that today's society tells us we should have. However, I truly believe that giving your children a Catholic education is a sacrifice worth making.

St. Gerald teachers are highly qualified and believe deeply in Catholic education. They are dedicated to creating the best learning opportunities possible for each student.

If you would like more information about our school or a tour, please call our school office at 402-331-4223 or you can e-mail me at mgoerke@stgerald.org. We welcome the opportunity to share more about our school with you. If you choose to enroll, you will find the rewards are great!

Yours in Christ,

Michala M. Goerke, Principal
