In our seventh year, we are energized by the recognition as a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.  We invite you to honor this special occasion through our TitleWish Initiative, which will allow us to fill our media center with high-quality educational resources and books that will provide even more academic opportunities for our students. Please help us reach our goal of $2500.00 by clicking on the link below before May 3rd.  Each donation will be acknowledged with a special bookplate inside all of the newly purchased materials.  Thank you for your help in allowing us to provide the best education for all of the students at Mater Dei Catholic School where we celebrate Faith, Excellence, Service, and Community every day!
