Thank you to everyone that came out to the Meet the Teachers Night last week. I know that the times were short and the questions were long. The purpose of the night was to get a chance to put a face to a name. Many of you are already active in the building and have been great at communicating with the teachers~so you are ahead of the game. I understand that a new school brings new rules, expectations, and overall procedures to follow. As many of you already know, I am the wife of a career Air Force officer (retired). My daughter was a new student (and we were a new family) for 3 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 2 high schools, and 1 college. I have been a new faculty member at over a dozen different school in the 17 years of my career. I truly understand your worries and concerns and, along with the faculty here, want to help to make this transition as smooth as possible for you and your family. Please know that active, positive communication goes a long way to get your voice heard and your concerns assuaged. Let us know how we can help!
The hallways are full of beautiful art work and autumn creations! The biggest thing in the hallways this week are the political ads for our new Student Council hopefuls. Speeches for the officer candidates will be held on Tuesday, October 28 at 8:30. Representative speeches will be done in the homerooms after the assembly. There are a lot of students with some creative ideas!
Congratulations to our own Fr. Tom for being honored by Bishop Timon this Thursday (10/23). As an alum he is receiving the Judge Hillary award for his work as a humanitarian exemplifying the Franciscan spirit of caring and serving in the community. Please keep in your prayers Fr. Dave as he journeys in the Holy Land.
God bless us all on this journey together! ~Mary Damico, Principal
