Principal’s Message

April 23, 2018
Dear St. Hugh community,

St. Damien de Veuster was born in Belgium 23, 2018 and dedicated his life to service. He was a Catholic missionary known today as the hero of charity because he identified so closely with the victims of leprosy.He worked with victims of leprosy for 16 year and died of the disease himself. He showed no difference in his approach and in his cafe of the lepers. In his ministry or in his works of charity he found a place for everyone.He called himself a Servant of God.

May God best you today, tomorrow and always.

Duke TIP

TIP works with students, their families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and help students reach their highest potential. Now in its thirty-eighth year, the 7th Grade Talent Search identifies bright seventh graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates were invited to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exams as seventh graders, which allowed them greater insight into their academic abilities.

Congratulations to the following students for their state recognition and for all that participated in the Duke Tip program.

Luciano Assunto (State Recognition), Nicole Miquilarena (State Recognition), Nicolas Rodriguez Almerini (State Recognition), Ana Cruz, Diego Espinosa, Sofia Santa-Cruz.
