Early August 2014
As the 2014-15 school year commences, I take the opportunity to greet all our students and their parents, all teachers and administrators, and all other persons who demonstrate interest and support for Catholic school education.
This year holds lots of promise—whether from the high hopes of students, each of whom embarks on a journey through a new grade level or from the elevated energy levels of new and returning teachers and principals who are rested and refreshed from summer. There is much to anticipate this year—personal growth, achievements, new insights, renewal of friendships and the beginnings of new ones, surprises, setbacks, second chances, successes.
This school year may your dreams and desires be big like the mountains, may your resolve and resiliency be constant like the north star, and may all the aspects of your lives be oriented toward God.
