Beautiful August weather, our returning and new students full of energy, and our community members in good spirits made for a perfect start to the 2015-2016 school year.
Our first day was perfect! The many smiles and sounds of laughter said it all! Thank you to the many families, new and returning, who joined us at our morning assembly. Thank you to the Student Council for a job well done. They welcomed the new school year with enthusiasm and joy!
Thank you to Father Pedro for taking time out of his busy schedule to welcome the school community and to offer blessings for a prosperous new school year!
Saint Clare School was founded as a primary school by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, who came to create one of the earliest school systems in California. It is located next to Mission Santa Clara and Santa Clara University. The school was originally built as Saint Mary’s and then later Notre Dame Academy. The school started in the Forbes house located on the city block bordered by Lexington St., Santa Clara St., Lafayette St. and Washington St.
In 1924 Saint Clare School moved across the street into a brand new school building that housed Kindergarten through eighth grade.
On August 20, Saint Clare School celebrated the opening of Transitional Kindergarten with a ribbon-cutting ceremony! We are excited to announce that we already have 13 students!
Thank you to the many, many people in our school and wider community that came together to join us for the celebration!
