Our mission as a school community is to model love, acceptance and guidance so that we may provide opportunities for children to develop their unique gifts in order to reach their full potential. At St. Elizabeth we work as a team to create an environment of peace so all students can feel safe as they learn.

St. Elizabeth of Hungary was born over 800 years ago. Her mother and father were the King and Queen of Hungary.“Blessed by God.” Elizabeth helped her parents and shared with her friends.
When she was fourteen years old, she married a prince named Louis. They became the King and Queen and had three children. The people of Hungary were very important to Elizabeth. Every day she visited the poor and brought them food and clothes. She brought sick people to her palace and care for them.
Six years after they were married a sad thing happened. Louis died in a war far away from home. Louis’s brother became the new king. Some people in the palace were jealous of Elizabeth. She and her children had to leave in the middle of winter.
Elizabeth decided to keep on helping the poor. She built a hospital to care for the poor, the sick and the people no one else wanted to help. Elizabeth died when she was only 24 years old. Because she cared for other people her whole life, the Catholic Church made her a saint.
We celebrate the life of St. Elizabeth of Hungary on November 17th.
