President's Notes

Welcome Back to School, September 2018

It's "go time" at Totino-Grace. Over 95% of our students are involved in co-curricular activities, with many of our students competing in fall sports, clubs and performing arts programs. Teachers’ are motivated and enthusiastic about the semester ahead with their new classes of students. No doubt this is a fun time of year.
As many of you know, Totino-Grace completed the final phase of a significant heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) project at the start of the school year. The ability to control individual classroom temperatures will be a significant improvement to our learning environment. Likewise, the new lights and ceiling tiles really freshen up our school.   
In addition, our new track was open for use on Monday, August 10, just in time for the new athletic season. Perhaps more important, Totino-Grace launched a new website, allowing for better navigation and communication. 
The Lasallian expression “Together and by Association” describes a promise to make a difference in young people’s lives through relationships and education, and that is what generations of faculty, staff, alumni, parents, students, and friends have accomplished. Our students are part of a school community that helps students foster a quest to attain their personal best. 

Together, let’s have a great school year.

Live Jesus in our hearts. Forever!

Dr. Craig W. Junker, President

As recently as the 1980s, only two percent of the American population described education as “the most important problem facing the nation.” By 1996 Americans ranked “the quality of schooling as the most pressing concern after crime.” In more recent times, several polls have reiterated this primary concern – along with leadership, healthcare, and the economy.
The power of education in our lives was confirmed long ago. There has always been a rift in prosperity between the educated and uneducated, but it has presently become a significant chasm.
