  Awards

St. Dominic Catholic School was awarded Exemplary Status by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in the area of Mission and Catholic Identity in 2016 and Innovative Programs for its SMART Team in 2010.. Previously part of the accreditation process, the Exemplary Schools Program is now a separate process to identify schools with exceptional programs.  Schools applied for recognition in several categories by submitting written applications.  Schools with superior written applications were selected to be visited by a team of experts.


With the support of families, students and staff, our school has been named the 2012 Red Robin Foundation U-ACT Champion School for establishing a "Kindness Team" that led monthly Kindness Challenges earning St. Dominic Catholic School a $7, 500 grant!

What is U-ACT?
U-ACT stands for Unbridled Acts, or random acts of kindness; a character-building initiative specifically for elementary and middle schools with grades Kindergarten through 8.


Student Awards

Congratulations to the following St. Dominic Catholic School students who were named to the 2012 Student Achiever Awards Program sponsored by the Lynde & Harry Bradley Foundation and the Brewers Community Foundation:

Highest Achievement: Vienna George, Harrison Ott, Elena Valentyn, Abby Weisse and Matthew Wickeham. Best Effort: Daniel Drees, Madeline Illman, Tyler Parker, Tiana Rohe, Caronine Sauer

St. Dominic Eighth Grader Emily Ott was awarded the Rose and Louis Scrima Scholarship from Catholic Memorial High School! There is only one Scrima Scholarship awarded to an incoming freshman each year. It is a $1,500 renewable scholarship for four years at Catholic Memorial (a total value of $6,000).  

Catholic Memorial High School would also like to recognize the following students from St. Dominic: Rachel Mlsna, Nicholas Reit, and Evan Wetzel. These students were finalists in the Louis and Rose Scrima Scholarship competition. To be a finalist, students must take the CMH placement test (for 8th graders in November) and earn a score ranking them in the top 10. This year there were 187 students that took the placement test and the top 10 students were chosen as finalists. The final step of the scholarship competition is a short panel interview, focusing on faith, service and leadership.

St. Dominic Catholic School Eighth Grader Nick Reit (8S) was offered a $500.00 Tuition scholarship from Marquette University High School for receiving one of the top three scores on this year's Entrance Exam. Four hundred and ninety-five eighth grade students, representing 147 different schools took the exam. 

St. Dominic Catholic School is proud of the academic achievement, faith life and leadership qualities of our students.  It is this dedication to hard work and achievement that will prepare them for future success as adults.  As Scripture states: "He who sows sparingly will reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will reap bountifully."  2 Corinthians 9:6

American Mathematics Contest

On November 27th, 2012, the St. Dominic School seventh and eighth graders competed in The American Mathematics Competition sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America and the Akamai Foundation. Over 150,000 students from 2,200 schools nationally and internationally participated in this competition. The purpose of this contest is to spur interest in mathematics and to develop problem solving abilities through the excitement of friendly competition in a timed format. The Akamai Foundation is dedicated to excellence in mathematics in the hopes that they can encourage America’s next generation to become mathematical innovators, especially in the fields of technology. This is one of the few forums that allow students to compete internationally with other students in an academic area and in the process of doing this, help them to realize that mathematics can be very exciting and rewarding. The following is a list of the top St. Dominic students:

  • 1st Place: Michael Weisse(7G) – Michael’s score was among the top ten percent in the nation!

  • 2nd Place Tie: Jackson Minessale(7G)

  • 3rd Place Tie: Brigid Hughes(7B) and Nick Noll(8S)

Michael will receive a first place award certificate and pin. His name will be inscribed on the American Mathematics Award Plaque at our school. I’d like to congratulate all of our students that took part in this contest, and also our 7th and 8th Grade Math Teacher, Mrs. Mary Goll on these outstanding results.

Compared to many of the larger schools that took part in this contest, some may consider St. Dominic to be a “small” school. But this contest proves once again that even as a “small” school, St. Dominic’s can compete with the very best. There is nothing small if God is in it. As Scripture states: “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, ‘move from here to there’, and it shall move; and nothing shall be impossible to you.” Matthew 17: 20

National Association of Biology Teachers' Convention

Ms. Donna LaFlamme, our Junior High Science teacher, was selected to deliver a presentation at the National Association of Biology Teachers' Convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Ms. LaFlamme collaborated with Karen DeBoer, a teacher at Kettle Moraine High School in presenting their work entitled: Bird Flu Knocking on the Door: Molecular Stories from the Center for BioMolecular Modeling of the Milwaukee School of Engineering. The project involved designing a hands-on workshop in Molecular & Cell Biology for High School and Two Year College students.

High School Student Alumni Awards

Sisters of the Divine Savior Recognize Extraordinary Service  

Four members of St. Dominic Catholic Parish are among 41 Divine Savior Holy Angels High School (DSHA) seniors who received the Salvatorian Service Award on May 17. Emily Carroll, Kelly Jessup, Maura Ann King and Hailey Rowen were nominated by their parents, approved by DSHA theology teachers, and affirmed by their service mentors from as near as local homeless shelters and as far as impoverished villages in Ecuador. Sisters of the Divine Savior, who sponsor DSHA bestow the award to recognize students' ongoing volunteer service above and beyond their graduation requirement. The international women's religious community, also known as Salvatorian Sisters, established The Salvatorian Service Award in 1988 to mark their founding centennial. They are a branch of the international Salvatorian Family which also includes priests, religious brothers and lay women and men.

Marquette University High School Honor Society Inductees

Congratulations to five former St. Dominic Catholic School students and their families on a very special honor. On April 17th, 2012, Michael Drees, Greg Mattern and Dan Reit (class of 2009), and Joshua Kramer and Patrick O'Grady (class of 2010), were among 50 students inducted into the MUHS Jesuit High School Honor Society. The overriding objective of Marquette High is to form persons who will utilize their God-Given gifts and talents in the service of others. These students were selected by the faculty as the embodiment of progress towards developing young men who not only excel academically, exhibit leadership skills, but are also open to growth, intellectually competent, religious, loving and committed to justice. This is one of the highest honors that can be conveyed to a MUHS student. Considering that Marquette draws students from over 140 grade schools, it seems no small feat that 10% of the boys inducted this year are St. Dominic graduates!

Catholic Memorial Recognizes Extraordinary Service

On Friday, May 11, 2012, William "Teddy" Delforge '08, was named the inaugural recipient of the Col. Mary Jo MacGregor '81, USMC (Ret.) Award for Meritorious Service. The ceremony was conducted during CMHS's Celebrating Lives of Service event.

St. Dominic School is proud to be a part of the educational past of these students. Through hard work and dedication to their studies, Michael, Greg, Dan, Josh and Patrick have made the most of their God-given talents. This example of leadership is one that we encourage in all of our students. As Christians, we can look to God to provide us with the way to lead. As Scripture states, "I the Lord, Your God, teach you what is for your good, and lead you on the way that you should go." Isaiah 48:17
