Good Morning St. Ignatius Families,

It is bittersweet to announce to you today that our eighth grade teacher for the last decade, Mrs. Jessie Wimer, has accepted the Principal position at St. Rose Catholic School for the 2021-2022 school year.  St. Rose was looking for someone with middle school experience and a strong Catholic Social Teaching influence, and Mrs. Wimer was the perfect candidate.  

Mother Teresa, whom Mrs. Wimer is particularly fond of, once said, “It’s not about how much you do, but how much love you put into what you do that counts.”  Mrs. Wimer has put so much love into her work here at St. Ignatius.  She will be greatly missed!  Please join us in congratulating her on her new role.

We know this news also brings some apprehension among families.  I have already spoken with our new Principal, Carol Pausz, and will update you on our next steps as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Kathleen Downing
Principal/2nd Grade Teacher
St. Ignatius Parish School

New Principal for St Ignatius School!

Dear St. Ignatius Parishioners and Visitors,

Catholic education undertakes formation of the whole human person. This happens with the utmost care and intention at our own small school; a Jesuit, Holy Names Catholic Grade School featuring a rigorous academic program with small class sizes.


If there is a child in your life who you would love to see have a unique and excellent educational experience in a small community, we have a few spots for new students for the 2019–2020 school year.

If you or anyone you know is interested in learning about St. Ignatius School, please call the office at 503.774.5533 and we will be happy to schedule a tour and answer any questions. You may also visit our website.
