$ Dress Day

“It’s not enough to just know it,

you have to show it

and live it!”

Catholic identity is an important part of the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School curriculum and is the bedrock of our mission to lead each student in the formation of a strong Catholic faith through the balanced pursuit of knowledge, prayer, responsibility, and service.

Beginning in Pre-K, students from our very own Father John Libone in weekly mass and from the teachers in the classrooms “It’s not enough to just know it, you have to show it and live it”. By the time they are 8th graders they truly understand the relevance of these three short phrases.

For years, our St. Thomas Aquinas community has “lived it” through food drives, fundraising for emergency and special causes and volunteering for service projects. This school year, our very popular $ Dress Days have taken on new significance, creating awareness of very important issues in our community and providing financial support to organization on the front lines of helping those in need.
