Little Flower
Catholic Church and School

Truly Catholic • Truly Innovative • Truly Different

School Board

The purpose of the Little Flower School Board is to advise and support the pastor and administration of the Little Flower Parish in making policy for the school and to serve as liaison between the pastor, administration and the Little Flower Catholic School community. Our School Board meetings are open to the community and are held every month on the third Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m.  

Please feel free to e-mail us at [email protected] for information about meetings or if you have any questions, concerns or ideas. School Board minutes can be found on SchoolSpeak under Announcements.
Gloria Openlander
Gloria has taught in public and Catholic schools for twelve years and has over 25 years of administrative and leadership experience.  Besides being a St. Ambrose parishioner, she is a mother of two adult children, and grandmother of three.
 Her favorite things to do are cooking for family, reading, walking, and vacationing in Italy!  She is very impressed in how dedicated the Little Flower community is to providing a successful program for the parish and school.
 She is honored and excited to serve the Little Flower Community, especially the children.  Being part of a parish family that believes in investing in the church’s youth through education is a journey full of blessings!  The opportunity to team with a dedicated pastor, parish, and school community to provide school families with excellent education programs for the present and the future is a responsibility that she accepts whole heartily.
