Principal's Message | September 5th


Dear Eagle Family,
As we enter the month of September, it is extraordinary to see a full and active new school year.  As Father Buddy Breaux shared in his homily at our school Mass on Friday, “newness” can bring on so many feelings and emotions.  How blessed we are to have a community so invested and active in the daily life of our school.  From our Alumni Softball tournament to embracing the Doktor family with love and faithfulness to our first regular season football game this past Friday, thank you to all of the parents, grandparents, students, faculty, staff, and alumni who have shown up to make our new school year one that represent the traditions and core values of Vermilion Catholic, a legacy of Mount Carmel.

As we move into the coming months, let us remember this verse, shared by Deacon Reed, which directly aligns with the vision statement as one school:

Colossians 3:17 - And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the 
name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

I can honestly say that I have been a personal witness to your children living this truth in their interactions with me and others.  From our youngest 3 year olds to our seniors, it is wonderful to see the level of kindness, mutual respect, compassion, and faithfulness of students towards their classmates and teachers.  May God continue to guide us all, and especially our children, in their words and actions.

Please remember to frequently check our school calendar for all of our events and ways you can stay involved ( Next week will bring our first quarter progress reports which can be accessed using our Family Portal SIS account (  Please remember that your child(ren)’s teachers are your best resources if you have any questions or need academic assistance for your student(s).  We strive to be your partners in the education of your children so that they may have a successful school year!

Thank you for your continued support of our school mission and vision! Looking forward to seeing you all at our various events this week!

Proud to be an Eagle!
Dr. Stella Arabie
