Camp will be in session Monday, June 6 through Friday, August 5, 2016. Our experienced staff is excited to provide a fun, safe and happy environment for your child/children this summer. Our program is designed for children entering Pre-K through entering 4th grade and is located on the St. Elizabeth school campus. If Camp Shamrock is in your summer plans, please enroll early as space is limited. Registration information can be found on the school website, stekcschool.org. Questions?

Comfort in the Word

Have you experienced a loss in your life due to the death of a loved one? Are you seeking Comfort and Peace? God the Father of consolation is always there to give you strength no matter where you are in your grief journey. If you are seeking some encouragement at this time, God will show you the way.

St Elizabeth is now offering you a place to come together, through a ministry called "Comfort in the Word." This ministry supports one another in fellowship, prayer and God's Word. Our next meeting will be on Saturday, May 14, at 11:00am.

For the May meeting, we will combine a light luncheon and social time with the month's program. St. Elizabeth's will provide the food and beverages. If you plan to attend, please RSVP by 5/9 to Carolyn Sawyer at 816-942-3442 or Therese Roseburrough at 816-444-2219.

Heritage Fund

Donate Online (click here)

Your donation, doubled.

Once again this year, an anonymous group of donors has generously agreed to match dollar-for-dollar any contributions that are made to the St. Elizabeth Heritage Fund.

Our vision is to maintain St. Elizabeth School as one of the leading Catholic elementary schools in the Kansas City area. Our mission is to strengthen the existing school's financial stability and celebrate its outstanding educational heritage.

The Heritage Fund was created by a group of former school parents because they value the quality education their children received years ago and want the same to continue for our current and future students: an education rooted in the Catholic faith, with an emphasis on giving back and with high academic standards. 

 

Fire Foundation (click here)

FIRE was founded in 1996 by a group of parents who shared a common dream; for their children with special needs to attend their parish schools with siblings and friends. Since that time, through the efforts of parents, a dedicated board of directors, many talented volunteers and community members who embrace inclusive Catholic education, $2.5 million has been granted to partner schools in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph (MO) to support inclusive Catholic education.

The FIRE Foundation, an independent 501(c)3 organization, makes it possible for partner Catholic schools to hire special educators and paraprofessionals and to acquire learning materials and technology that create successful learning experiences for all children. Without grants from FIRE, most schools would not be able to welcome students with Down syndrome, significant learning disabilities, many who are on the Autism spectrum and students who face other special learning challenges. In inclusive learning environments, children grow up knowing and appreciating each other’s unique gifts. St. Elizabeth is a proud partner school.

"God is the main Head Coach."

"Experience that awesome feeling that comes with being part of something bigger than ourselve.s"

"It is not an obligation to us. It is a privilege."

"How shall we make a return to the Lord for all the good He has done for us?"

"God prepared this house for us."
