NORWALK, Conn. — All Saints Catholic School will be led by a new principal. Linda Dunn, a seasoned Catholic school administrator, was chosen to head the school this week by Margaret Dames, superintendent of schools for the Diocese of Bridgeport.
For the past year, Dunn was assistant principal of academics at Trinity Catholic High School in Stamford. Before that, she served as principal of St. Jude Elementary School in Monroe for 12 years. Dunn left St. Jude last year to help lead Trinity Catholic after the sudden deaths of its principal and vice principal.
“I am sure that Mrs. Dunn’s 12 years of experience as an elementary school principal in the Diocese of Bridgeport and her past year at TCHS will provide a smooth transition for the students, faculty, staff and parents of All Saints Catholic School,” Dames said in a statement.
Dunn said she is impressed by the school’s strong financial position, low tuition rates relative to other parochial schools in Fairfield County and its commitment to technology. In addition to equipping classrooms with smart boards and upgrading the school's state-of-the-art media centers, All Saints will introduce iPads in the coming school year.
“All Saints is a school where the faculty, the administration, and the parents’ partner together to foster a caring environment focused on strong Christian values. In today’s world, that is very important,” said Dunn.
Nancy DiBuono, principal of All Saints for the past five years, has accepted a position as assistant principal of academics at St. Joseph High School in Trumbull.
Dunn, a resident of Stamford, holds a bachelor’s degree in modern languages from Fairfield University and a master’s degree in education from Sacred Heart University. She has also participated in the administration certificate program at Sacred Heart and holds Connecticut state teacher and administrator certifications.
All Saints Catholic School is a fully accredited elementary/middle school located at 139 West Rocks Road in Norwalk. It has 600 students in prekindergarten through eighth grade.
