HOW IT STARTED

St. Veronica Catholic School was opened in 1958 by a group of parents who were committed to St. Veronica Parish. These parents wanted to establish a school where their children would receive a strong academic foundation which would be immersed in the Catholic faith and doctrine. Since its beginning, the strength and support of the parent community has been a trademark of St. Veronica Catholic School.

THE FIRST TEACHERS

The sisters of Infant Jesus were the first teachers to staff the classrooms and manage the administration. In the beginning, when the Sisters opened the doors of the school, the first classes were grades one through three. Additional grades were added each of the following years until all eight grades were established. Kindergarten was added in 1980 and Extended Care in 1986.

ST. VERONICA’S SPORTS LOGO

1961 saw the “birth” of the St. Veronica’s School Falcon sports mascot! While in sixth grade, the class of 1964 as the “oldest” class when sports teams were being formed. They were given the task of coming up with the school sports mascot. Their initial discussion led to the class wanting to be the St. Veronica School Fighting Irish, just like Notre Dame University. After all, they had green sweaters!

However, the nuns’ argument that not all the students were Irish prevailed. The class’ second choice, the “Rebels”, met with the same reasoning, never mind that the students thought it was a “cool” name. After further discussion and the realization that a tamer choice would probably be more acceptable to the nuns, there was a vote between the “Falcon” and “Eagles”. The class voted to be the “Falcons”.

The representation of the St. Veronica Falcons has gone through several renditions with the current image depicted here.
