A WORD FROM REGINA ELEMENTARY PRINCIPAL CELESTE VINCENT…

Greetings from Regina Elementary…

My name is Celeste Vincent and I have had the privilege of being involved at Regina for many years. My parents were public school teachers for over thirty years, but their priority was to give their children a Catholic education. I attended Regina High School for grades 7-12. I decided to join the field of educators as my profession also.

After graduating from the University of Iowa in Elementary Education, I was fortunate enough to come back to the educational system that had given me so much. I enjoyed teaching reading students in grades first, second, and third. Then, I was a fifth grade teacher. I was later called to the area of leadership and received my masters in Educational Administration from the University of Iowa. I served five years as assistant principal and then was chosen as the elementary school principal, my current school position. Regina is a very special institution that takes an ordinary life and turns it into an extraordinary life with many blessings academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. If I may be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me so that I may share all that Regina has to offer you and your family.

Activities

Girl Scouts – Girl Scouting is for every girl, everywhere—where today’s girls can become tomorrow’s leaders. Membership in Girl Scouts is open to girls in grades K- 12.

Most girls join a local troop or group for fun and friendship, but they also find out about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities—the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society.

Cub Scouts – Cub Scouts do fun things with other kids! They get to wear a cool uniform, go places, and see things. They play all kinds of sports and build things, like race cars and bird houses. Want to learn a secret code? Want to learn about wild animals? Go Cub Scouting! (ages 7-10)
