Happy Catholic Schools Week! We are half way through a week filled with celebrations. Wow, the timing could not have been more perfect! I hope all of you felt the love from the special “Thank yous” from your children yesterday. It was wonderful to see so many of you at our Thank You Coffee hosted by our teachers and staff yesterday morning. The tables were turned this morning when we all came in to a wonderful breakfast and treats for us! This truly is a special place to be! Tomorrow is a day to celebrate our students…two pizza trucks will be pulling up mid-morning to create amazing craft pizzas for their lunch! For those of you wondering…Yes, pizza two times in one week…but I don’t think anyone will complain, especially since it is accompanied by a free dress day! We will end our week with a celebration of our grandparents on Friday. Because we love them and want to keep them healthy, we will not be able to welcome them to our campus. But we can still send out our prayers to them in a special way during our school Mass. We will make up for this next year with a grand celebration!
I know this is easier said than done, but let us continue on with the joy we have experienced this week for the remainder of this school year. Let us find joy in the small accomplishments we achieve daily. Let us remember that our lives are beautiful because we are all so different. Let us continue to appreciate the many different views we all have on so many different topics. Let us cherish the innocence of our children as they learn from their own mistakes as well as the mistakes of others. Let us never under estimate the power of forgiveness for both the forgiver and the person receiving forgiveness. Together we are strong…Together we are united…Together we are family…Together we are SMA!!!!
Stay Strong Stella!
