Magdalen Email

Hello Magdalen parents,

We experienced significant problems with sending and receiving email messages last week (11/9 - 11/17).  We only realized this morning how widespread the situation was due to multiple failure notices or delayed messages received today. If you have not heard back from a teacher or staff member on an email from last week, it is highly probable the email was never received.  Currently, the problem appears to be resolved. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused for our families, and we thank you for your patience with this situation. 

God Bless,

Kristin Schmitz

Bishop Kemme at Magdalen

Bishop Kemme celebrated All-School Mass at Magdalen on Tuesday, September 30th. He was very impressed with the students' participation and knowledge of the Bible. Then, he hung out to give students high-fives!

Formation of the Whole Student

Developing Catholic students to become faithful stewards of God's gifts.

As the school year begins, we would like to take a moment to reflect on our goals at Magdalen Catholic School. By living our mission as stated above, we seek to develop the whole student, spirit, mind, and body, into becoming faithful stewards. To achieve this goal, as well as the Diocese of Wichita's Catholic School Standards listed below, we all, priests, sister, administrators, teachers, support staff, parents, and students, play an important role.

Catholic schools seek, with God’s grace, to form the total person in the image of Christ. This goal cannot be confined to the classroom but will only be achieved through the totality of the student’s activities, experiences, lessons, and relationships. Accordingly, the school’s resources must be directed to the fulfillment of the following standards.

 

Catholic Elementary Schools – Students are expected to…

  1. know church teaching, practice Christian virtue, and participate in their parish faithfully; moreover, receive the sacraments, all of which were instituted by Christ and each of which has its own vital place in Christian living;
  2. demonstrate a reverence for life and respect for self, family, authority, and all cultures;
  3. have an informed conscience, distinguish right from wrong, and know how to make choices based on Catholic/Christian values;
  4. be respectful and responsible, compassionate, and just toward others;
  5. demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and desire to continue to learn successfully in middle school or high school;
  6. be independent, responsible, and self-disciplined decision-makers who set priorities and boundaries, lead, and work on teams, make sacrifices to achieve goals, monitor progress, and apply creative and critical thinking skills;
  7. have the reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills needed to communicate effectively;
  8. read at or above grade level unless there is a handicapping disability;
  9. master basic knowledge of religion, language arts, mathematics, geography, history, civics, science, and fine arts;
  10. utilize appropriate technology to access and communicate information.
