Bring a new culture into your home!!

We have a few international students interested in attending our school. Would you be interested in being a host family? 

Host family provides a place for the student to live and transportation to and from school. Stipend is provided by Educatius international student company.  JPII parent hours are waived as well.  Reach out to me with questions and for more information.

Our Lady Centurions pulled off a big win over IWA 6-3.  This win improves them to 3-0 in district and in sole custody of 1st place.  The Lady Centurions were led by game MVP Bri Mejias.  Bri pitched a complete 7 inning game, and made some highlight catches from the mound.  She also went 3-4 in batting.  The girl was in her zone.  Be sure to sure to congratulate the ladies when you see them.  They are making us Centurion Proud!!!
