Notes from the Principal
Greetings Saint Ambrose Families!
What a wonderful way to kick off the school year! With over 100 people in attendance, the first Home & School Association Meeting was a great way to fellowship with other parents, have a quick snack and most of all gather helpful information! Thank you to the HSA Officers for organizing a fantastic meeting and lining up great speakers. Special thanks to Corporal Shawn Reaves, father of Symone Reaves (7
Grader) and a dynamic speaker with an important message!
