Celebrates Catholic Schools Week 2017

This week Totino-Grace joins thousands of schools across the country in celebrating the gift of Catholic education. This annual event provides an opportunity to promote and recognize faith-filled, academic communities engaged in service to others. 

Our hope during this week and beyond is to recognize our accomplishments and contributions, lift up our four pillars (learning, faith, community and service), and commit to strengthening our Catholic Lasallian mission and goals.

We are beyond thankful to all parents and guardians who entrust their children to us. We are immensely proud of our outstanding and inspiring students and alumni. We are forever grateful to our founders and benefactors. And we are truly blessed by the gifts, talents and passion of Totino-Grace teachers and staff members who answered their vocational call to Catholic education.

For fifty years Totino-Grace High School has been educating students in the Catholic Lasallian tradition. We look back fondly on our history and with anticipation, look forward to a strong future! 

Check back for additional news and images from our exciting week of events.
