Dear Queen of Peace Families, I hope you had a great summer, had a lot of fun, stayed safe, enjoyed time with your family, and renewed yourself for the new school year. I missed you!
It is with great pleasure and a sense of excitement that the administration and faculty of Queen of Peace Elementary School welcome you and your children for the 2015-2016 school year. This new year marks the 90th anniversary of our school. Activities to celebrate this impressive milestone are planned for the whole school community in the upcoming months. Our school is truly blessed as we continue its mission in this celebration:
The mission of Our Lady Queen of Peace Elementary School is to empower our students with Catholic teaching, morality, and traditions as well as knowledge and academic skills that will enable them to embrace the challenges of the future in a constantly changing world.
A new year provides so many possibilities of growth in learning, in faith, in friendships, and in service to others. I encourage every student and parent to embrace the opportunities that lie ahead.
In a 2013 address to Catholic School Students, Pope Francis stressed that education should be more than just a place to expand knowledge, that it should also be a place to learn compassion and magnanimity. He explained magnanimity:
It means having a big heart, having a greatness of soul. It means having grand ideals, the desire to achieve great things in response to what God asks of us and, precisely because of this, doing everyday things, all our daily actions, commitments, and meetings with people well. [It means] doing the little everyday things with a big heart that is open to God and to others.
I look forward to a successful school year, supported by the traditionally strong home/school partnership at Queen of Peace. Thank you for your commitment to Catholic Education.
Blessings and peace,
Our new website will be available shortly!
Queen of Peace Elementary will have a new website available shortly. You can retrieve this site the same way you are accustomed to. In the meantime new information will continue to be posted on this site.

I wish all the families of Queen of Peace a safe and fun-filled summer. I feel honored to have been given the opportunity to serve as principal this year. Queen of Peace is truly a special community. Thank you for your continued commitment to Catholic education. This commitment will provide life-long benefits for your child. Enjoy the summer months! Mrs. Ellen Naughton
