Congratulations to our girls varsity basketball team! In a very unique sequence of events, first place Manistee Catholic had to play one final conference game after the conclusion of the regular season.

Hello Parents. It was brought to our attention that there is a misprint in the orange district calendars that were mailed home at the beginning of the year. That calendar shows parent teacher conferences happening tonight (March 3rd). This is incorrect. They will take place on Thursday March 10th from 5-8 pm. Please contact the office at either school if you have any questions. Thank you!
