We all can take pride in the accomplishments of our 37 elementary Catholic schools and their students. Last October, for the first time, all students in grades 1 through 8 took The Iowa Test of Basic Skills, a nationally rated achievement test.
When Sister Gloria Cain, SSND, our Catholic school superintendent, received the results recently, they showed that our Catholic school students scored better than 70 percent of all the students in the United States.
I congratulate the students, teachers and administrators on this significant accomplishment.
Be sure to look for a detailed report in the next edition of The Texas Catholic.
