We are an Apple School

As an Apple School, we at Madonna Catholic School strive to make the healthy choice an easychoice.  Healthy Living activities and information are not only part of our health cirriculum but extended to all areas of our school life.  Healthy nutrition, daily physical activity, and a postivie social environment are highlighted and promoted in our daily announcements, newsletters, bulletin boards, assemblies, professional development, hot lunch and other fund raisers whenever possible.
