Dear Parents, Students, Alumni and Friends of Nazareth Academy Grade School,
On behalf of the staff at our school, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you and to insure our children achieve their highest potential. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and we want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We know it will “bee” a great year!
At this time I would like to share some of the wonderful things that occurred this summer. We have three new teachers on staff: Mrs. Cheryl Gaspari in grade four, Miss Molly Gaughan in grade three and Mrs. Kristy Boyd in Physical Education. If you happened to drive by, you may have noted numerous maintenance and construction projects going on. The boiler room was thoroughly cleaned out and the old boiler has been removed and replaced with a cost efficient boiler that will last for years. The library has been renovated with outdated books removed, classroom libraries have been enhanced and we now have a STEM lab with new flip tables, projector, stools, rockers, tools and resources to help our children develop problem solving skills. All of our teachers attended workshops this summer and are excited to begin. Lastly, the long awaited surprise has arrived, as you can see in the photo at right! Let the fun begin!
Thank you for entrusting your children to us, both in the past and in the present. Let us continue to work together to do what is best for our school. We have done this for seventy-seven years! Thank you for being a part of it.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
Sister Linda Joseph, csfn
