Welcome to Cabrini!

My name is Mary Holroyd. I graduated from Washington State University and earned my Catechetical Certification from the Archdiocese of Seattle. I am a proud mom of three St. Frances Cabrini graduates and have been affiliated with the school since 1994. I came back in 2008 to join the staff and teach PreK thru 8th Grade Physical Education as well as 8th Grade Religion. This has truly been a dream job and a blessing to be part of such a faith-filled community.

Philosophy Statement
•  I believe each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world.

•  I believe that every child is capable of learning and is able to rise to set expectations.

•  In my class, I will teach children how to become responsible for themselves as well as their own learning.

•  I will give them the tools to become successful in life, to believe in themselves, and to love themselves.

Each age level works to their abilities.

• Students learn to develop individual skills as well as basic rules and strategies necessary to become successful in various sports/games.

• Students learn and improve skills on how to be a team player and exhibit good sportsmanship.

• Students will recognize the importance of lifelong fitness with the benefit of healthy minds and bodies.

"My daughter has only been in school here for two weeks. In this short time, however, she has already displayed some signs of Christian growth.  The questions she asks about life and death are probing and complex.  As parents these questions enhance our Christian growth, as well."
"By attending St. Frances Cabrini School, my child will gain the continuation of respect, tolerance, self discipline and the caring for others."
"The school's greatest strengths are many, but discipline and keeping parents informed of student progress seem to stand out."
"The school gives great attention to the needs of its students, plus it is relatively small. The school has high standards of achievement."
