Greetings From the Principal

Welcome to St. Bernadette School’s web site!


      Principal Ewanciw

 Thank you for stopping by to check out the “Buzz.” For the past 72 years, starting with the first day of school under the guidance of the sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis on September 8, 1947, St. Bernadette School has nurtured a robust Catholic identity and instilled traditions that foster the complete growth of each child.

On behalf of pastor Monsignor Smith and our faculty and staff, I invite you to visit our school during one of our Open House events, or to call the admissions office for an appointment.  St. Bernadette School is dedicated to building a strong academic foundation for life-long learning. Woven into our school days are activities and prayer designed to foster a love of God and a passion for service.  

As we head toward our 75th anniversary, we reflect on the many blessings of our community: Foremost are our students and their families that embody this enthusiasm for education and love of life. We witness their joy daily throughout our campus, from the bright classrooms to the spacious fields and playgrounds to the sacred majesty of St. Bernadette Church and the spiritual calm of our school chapel.

We are a diverse community of learners and educators committed to meeting the challenges before us and achieving excellence through faith-based education, and we hope that you will see the evidence of Christ’s light in our students and community.  There is a rich heritage that permeates throughout the school and church and into the nearby Silver Spring neighborhoods and beyond that we are happy to share with you, so please explore our web site, come visit our school and see why St. Bernadette School is buzzing! We look forward to meeting you. 

Wishing God’s Blessings to All,
Theodore Ewanciw, Principal
