Our Principal

Dear Parents,
       I’m pleased to introduce myself to you all (or perhaps reintroduce myself). I’m Allison Hawrylak and I’m excited to announce that I am the new principal at St. Sylvester School. For those of you who do not know me, I was born and raised in Brentwood. I attended St. Sylvester School from Kindergarten through 8th Grade. I graduated in 2004 and then attended Brentwood High School, graduating in 2008. I earned a dual Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education from Clarion University in 2013, where I was involved in many leadership organizations, such as Kappa Kappa Psi, Pi Lambda Theta, The Student Council for Exceptional Children, and Sigma Pi Epsilon Delta. From there, I received my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Teaching and Leadership from Point Park in 2017. I have my Provisional K-12 Supervision Certificate and will finish my complete Principal Certification in early spring 2019 through Point Park University.

     At St. Sylvester School, our mission is to recognize and nurture the unique potential of each child to actively live the Christian faith.  We see each child and guide them to see themselves as a precious gift, unique in intelligence, talents and strengths who are deserving of love, empathy, and guidance.  As the mission, of our patron, St. Sylvester, was to offer charity and hospitality to others, so our students are also encouraged to call upon their fruits of the spirit to invoke charity, hospitality, love and service to others!   Here at St. Sylvester's, children learn and grow in God's love through a faith-filled education. Our teachers provide a positive learning enviroment allowing students to grow spiritually and academically.  We believe parents are an intergal part of the educational process.  We teach students to respect themselves and others as children of God.  Our school provides a safe and secure enviroment!

With Peace, Love, and Lancer Pride,
Miss Allison Hawrylak
