Southington Catholic School opens doors Aug. 27


After many months of planning, organizing, preparing and furnishing the facility and hiring of teachers and staff, Southington Catholic School will be ready to open its doors and welcome its pre-K through eight grade students to their first day of school on Thursday, Aug. 27.
The occasion will be celebrated with the Southington community at an official blessing and ribbon cutting ceremony at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 23, 2015 with the Most Rev. Leonard P. Blair, Archbishop of Hartford, officiating. 
“Southington Catholic represents a merger of the finest in Catholic educational achievements, carrying forward the Christian teachings, traditions and history of its predecessor schools: St. Dominic Elementary School and St. Thomas School,” said a joint-statement by pastors Rev. Ronald May and Rev. Nicholas Melo, respectively, according to a press release from the school.
“We thank the faculty, staff, steering committee, sub-committees, volunteers and parents who have worked together, and the leadership of the Office of Catholic Schools, in bringing us to this exciting moment offering the Southington community and beyond an enhanced opportunity for the educational and spiritual development of our children.”
The ribbon cutting will take place in front of Southington Catholic School at 133 Bristol Street, Southington, CT and will be followed by refreshments. All are welcome to attend.
New student enrollments are still being accepted for the 2015-2016 school year by visiting the school offices at Southington Catholic. For further information, call (860)628-2485.
