Letter from the Principal
We are back and school is in session! Having students back on campus brings such a positive energy to our school.
My gratitude for my amazing staff is overflowing. Each one of them has worked overtime to make this switch happen. They are continuing to work through all the issues and solving every issue that props up. They are rock stars!
I am grateful to all the parents, for your patience and courageous caring of your children. We know that this has been no easy feat for you. Thank you for your continued belief in the value of a Catholic education for your children, one that is so vital in times like these.
I am grateful for our students without whom we wouldn't be here. We believe in you, and
we are very proud of you—all of you. Know that your church loves you, and we are here to support you in your learning and faith formation this 2020-2021 school year.
I am also thankful for our pastor, Fr. Ruben, and our Associate pastors, Fr. Ricky and Fr. Sheema. Their prayers and spiritual guidance is invaluable and inspiring.
While the road ahead may be somewhat unclear, what is crystal clear is that God is with us. This truth has been—and will always be—what ultimately unites us and sustains us.
