Welcome back to what is already starting off to be a WONDERFUL school year. It was so great seeing everyone at our orientation days and ice cream social; however, it so much better having the students back in the building all day. The hallways are filled with excitement and the classrooms filled with learning.
Our theme this year is NOW IS THE TIME, TO GO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. We believe that the student body, faculty, and parents of this school have, over the past year, come together in a special way. NOW IS THE TIME, to take our relationship and new energy to the next level. Pope Francis is calling for a Year of Mercy. Now is the time for us to make a difference in the things that we do and the output that is produced. We are planning for great things this year!
We are looking forward to our Meet the Teachers’ Night on September 25. PK-4th Grade will meet between 5:00-6:00; General assembly meeting/introduction of the teachers- 6:00-6:30 in the gym; 5th-8th Grade will meet between 6:30-7:30. More information will be sent home in next week’s Family Envelope. Remember, this is a time for the teacher to introduce to you (Parents only) the class procedures/policies and curriculum. This is not a time for individual meetings. If you are requiring a conference with a teacher, please email him/her directly to set up a meeting an alternate time.
Don’t forget to sign up for the 5K race! If you do so before next Monday, you will save $5 and be guaranteed a t-shirt. Hope to see you there.
It is with a very sad heart that we say goodbye to our pastor, Father Tom. Father has been with Queen of Heaven since 1997. His leadership and spiritual guidance have been equal only to his passion for Catholic education. Please join us as we say goodbye to Father at our first all school Mass on Thursday, September 17. Father will also be concelebrating a Mass of Thanksgiving on Sunday, September 20 at 11:15. A farewell reception will be held immediately following in the Parish Center.
God bless us all on this journey together! ~Mary Damico, Principal
