Dear Parents and Friends,
This has been a remarkable school year. We are proud of our students and all of their wonderful learning. They really worked hard and I am so proud of them.
Our eighth graders are ready to move on to High School. Their educational foundation is set and it is time for them to explore new academic opportunities. I hope they remember to come back and share all the great things they will experience.
This year we saw a number of new ventures alongside of our regular events. We have a new play structure and a new sound system in the Multi-Purpose Room. Our STEM lab was a huge success for our lower grades and now we will incorporate the program into our upper grades.
Thank you to all our wonderful teachers, many of whom go above and beyond to make sure their students are successful. They teach, care, share and push our students so they can be their best.
The end of April brought our successful NAGSPA Auction. Mr. and Mrs. Theodorou and their crew worked tirelessly to make it an enjoyable and profitable night for the school. Thank you Mrs. Burns for all your hard work as our NAGSPA President and we welcome Mr. Brian Beatrice as our new President. We also have a new Student Council team with Annaliese Steiner, Brandan Beatrice, Nell Duesler and Emma Crumbock who I know will do a great job.
Special thanks to our parents who have contributed in ways small, large and unimaginable. Thanks for getting your children to school on time each day and helping your children in the learning process. The partnership between home and school is very important.
To the future, we look forward to all new lighting in all the classrooms, corridors and outdoors as well. The green energy efficient LED technology will be a great visual improvement and will reduce utility costs. This summer, we hope to improve seating for our guests by replacing the Multi-Purpose folding chairs. We are thrilled to have raised $6,695.00 through the Walk-a-Thon to benefit the installation on an outdoor basketball/volleyball court for the children. Thank you for your support of this effort!
We will welcome a Middle States visiting team next Spring for our re-accreditation. We will be sharpening our skills in Science, Math and ELA to make us even better than we are. We are very proud of our #10 rating from Great Philly Schools as this makes the second year in a row for a top score.
Lastly, I would like to congratulate all our children on their hard work this year. I wish all those leaving us a successful future and look forward to seeing all returning students in the fall.
God bless you and your families.
Yours in the Holy Family,
Sister Linda Joseph, CSFN
