Principal’s Message

May 21, 2018
Dear St. Hugh community,

Practicing patience is a way to show our love for reach other and for God. In school, we must be patience many times during our day. Learning patience is another way of showing respect for others. It helps us to wait for God to guide us and show us the best way to live.

May God bless you today, tomorrow and always.

Duke TIP

TIP works with students, their families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and help students reach their highest potential. Now in its thirty-eighth year, the 7th Grade Talent Search identifies bright seventh graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates were invited to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exams as seventh graders, which allowed them greater insight into their academic abilities.

Congratulations to the following students for their state recognition and for all that participated in the Duke Tip program.

Luciano Assunto (State Recognition), Nicole Miquilarena (State Recognition), Nicolas Rodriguez Almerini (State Recognition), Ana Cruz, Diego Espinosa, Sofia Santa-Cruz.
