School History And TraditionP1040007.JPG

 

 

St. Jerome Catholic School was opened in the fall of 1963. The school building was composed of 10 classrooms and had a staff of six teachers and a principal. The student population was approximately 200. In the spring of 1966, construction began on an addition to the building which was completed by November 1966.
 
The school is named after St. Jerome who was born in Dalmatia in the fourth century A.D. He studied in Rome and is best remembered for translating the bible into Latin. He died in 420 A.D. He is the patron saint of librarians. His feast day is celebrated on September 30th.
