From the Desk of the Principal…June 8,  2021

 

chalkboardAt the end of this school year we give thanks to God:

For all of the teaching and learning that has taken place in our school, both in and out of the classroom.

For the talents and gifts that have been shared and the challenges that have been faced;

For the burdens that have been lifted and the hurts that have been healed;

For the respect and care that has been given.

For the faith that has lifted our hearts on the dark days;

And for the love that has kept us going.  We give thanks for the community that we are, and we ask you Lord ~ Bless our students, teachers, and our staff members.

May your Spirit inspire them with confidence and calmness. 

Bless our families and may our time together leave us with memories to cherish.

Pour out your love on us that we may return renewed and refreshed to continue our journey together.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord through the intercessions of St. Joseph, St. Julie, St. John Bosco and Our Lady of the Assumption.

Amen

afterschool pickupParents & Driver ~ Please continue to be respectful of our neighbors.  Thank you all for doing your part in helping with the after-school pick-up line.  We will continue to try and get the students out as quickly as possible.  For after-school pickup please try to arrive closer to dismissal time which begins at 2:30 pm.   I  am hopeful this will alleviate the backup and the concerns our neighbors are experiencing. Thank you for your support and cooperation.
