Tyler West is Mrs. Leonard’s great nephew. In 2012 Tyler was your normal, active 6 year old kid. He played soccer, loved to climb, played with his dinosaurs, was in Boy Scouts & karate. By the end of that year, he started to change. He began to show some symptoms, which eventually got worse. In January of 2013, after repeated visits to the doctors with no answers, the pain became so severe he could no longer walk, and his fingers & toes began to curl. He was taken to the ER because of the pain. He was checked in and blood work began. He spent the night. By the next morning, his family was told that they were being transported to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. Tyler was diagnosed with ALL, which is Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. This is a cancer of the blood.
Tyler has been through 2 years and 7 months of active treatment. He's had chemo, spinal chemo & draws, countless blood & platelet transfusions, IV meds, IV antibiotics, bone marrow tests, Occupational & Physical therapy. He is now cancer free!
Even though he is cancer free, he will still have frequent checkups to make sure he is staying in remission. He will be followed to check for any side effects from treatment.
He is a fighter and a hero!

Please join us for National Catholic Schools week, our annual celebration of what makes education at Annunciation Catholic School outstanding. Starting with Sunday Mass on January 31st at Annunciation Catholic Church, we have a whole week of activities planned to show what our students are accomplishing and to celebrate the community we have built to educate tomorrow’s citizens and church leaders.
This year’s National Catholic Schools Week theme centers on community: “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” The theme highlights the fact that schools are not only communities themselves; they are also part of many other communities, including families, parishes, towns/cities and our country.
The theme also focuses on key elements of Catholic education: faith development, academic excellence and dedication to service. These elements set Catholic schools apart from other educational options and are why families make sacrifices to provide their children with a Catholic education.
I hope you and your family will join Annunciation Catholic School during National Catholic Schools Week to enjoy our various activities and learn about the students’ faith development and community service projects. Please bring your friends and neighbors, particularly those who may be considering Catholic education for their children.
I am grateful every day for the teachers, staff, parents and volunteers who make our school a success. National Catholic Schools Week is a good time for all of us to thank them for their dedication and service.
God is in Control,
Joni House, Principal
Annunciation Catholic School
