_______________________________________________________________          

 It is with heavy hearts that we say good bye to our teacher, friend and colleague, Mrs. Denise Caulfield. Denise passed away this weekend.  Heaven has truly gained an angel.

Mrs. Caulfield taught at Visitation for over 6 years. In addition to being a hands on Mom, Denise was  a very involved parent when her children attended school here, serving as our Home School Association president for many years. Denise also helped at our Vacation Bible School, ran a Girl Scout troop at the school, and was involved in our Our Lady of the Visitation parish.

Denise will be truly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Denise's family at this time.

During Catholic School's Week, some of our students were asked..."What does the Blessed Mother mean to you....?" Check out this video from our students.
Visitation...the best school!
....As my study at Felician comes to an end, I have to say that Visitation Academy is the best school that I had ever been placed in as a student teacher. From the moment that I walked into the school, I felt I was welcomed by everyone, including the parents. This is exactly what happens in the Gospel when Mary visits her cousin, Elizabeth. From this perspective, I would say that the community of the Visitation Academy really lives up to its name.
