Today we have a beautiful little angel in Heaven, watching over all of our Saint Thomas family. Audrey Jandernoa, Saint Thomas preschooler and parishioner, left us to live with Jesus in Heaven. She will delight all of our loved ones who have gone ahead of us and will keep a perpetual smile on His face. For this, we must be happy.
Her funeral mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, January 31, at 11am at Saint Robert of Newminster Catholic Church, 6477 Ada Dr. SE, Ada with Father Jim presiding. Memorial contributions may be made to Saint Thomas the Apostle School Educational Support Services.
Saint Thomas the Apostle Catholic School recognizes the increased prevalence of student allergies. In addition, research shows that poor snacking habits can negatively impact a child’s academic performance. As a result, we have developed an allergen and healthy snack management policy to eliminate accidental exposure to any possible allergens and promote healthy eating habits. Please check out our Saint Thomas Allergen and Healthy Snack Management Policy and contact the school office if you have questions or concerns.
More than 160 school and parish women gathered for Saint Thomas's 2017 Advent by Candlelight. They met parishioner Chris Alfaro and heard her miraculous story of a mother’s faith, hope and love.

In celebration of Catholic Schools Week, we have created Saint Thomas the Movie illustrating students, teachers, parents, unique Chapel talks, prayers, and the remarkable moments that remind us just how blessed we truly are to be here. Saint Thomas the Apostle Catholic School is, without a doubt, a very special place.
One hundred and forty-two grandparents joined us on Friday, Oct. 21 for Grandparents Day at Saint Thomas. They toured school, visited their grandchild's classroom, and joined us for an All-School Mass. Immediately following, we hosted a reception in their honor. Grandparents made the trip from near and far in celebration of this special day. As we shared with them on Friday, although you are not here with us each and every day, we think of you, pray for you and thank you for your support of Saint Thomas the Apostle Catholic School.
It takes a village to raise a child. At Saint Thomas, it takes the love and wisdom of parents, family members, talented and devoted Catholic teachers, and a dedicated parish community to raise an honorable child of the light.
We want to share with you a new video entitled "Growing Up Saint Thomas" that was recently shared with new and prospective families at an information session. New and established families often mention that "something special" in our school. This intangible feeling is the synergy created by families, students, and teachers working together in weaving faith into all we do. We are passing on the tradition of our Catholic faith, and helping our children form a lifelong relationship with Christ. This video delivers that message in a way that words perhaps cannot.
Thank you for all that you do for our children.
