President's Welcome


Welcome to the Aberdeen Catholic School System.  Roncalli is a school system with a rich tradition of academic excellence, strong activity participation and community service. As you explore everything Roncalli has to offer, we invite you to visit our schools; meet with our faculty; attend our events, games and prayer services; and see firsthand how we’re preparing another generation of children for a life of learning and service.

"Whoever wants to be great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave. Just as the son of man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

-Matthew 20:25-28

As administration we are committed as servant leaders to serve our Catholic community.  The exciting aspect of following Jesus is that He never sends you into any situation with a faulty plan or a plan to fail.  Because of who He is, when Jesus speaks on a subject He guides us in a path that is in harmony with everything.  When He speaks on leadership, He speaks to us of what is both right and effective.  At Roncalli we aspire to be effective servant leaders.  As president, I will proudly serve the children, parents, teachers and staff as we proceed on our journey towards excellence for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Warmest regards,

Jeff Simmons
