Weekly eNews: February 14, 2019

Dear FIRSTNAME,

 

 

Each day, I look around and see students who come to school excited to grow in both academics and in faith. I see those same students spread love and joy to their classmates and teachers. I witness dedicated faculty and staff pour out their love and attention on each and every individual who walks through our doors. I see our nurturing families leading the way in teaching their children how to love one another.

 

We are infinitely blessed to have each other and this school; something that is easy to see every day, not just on this special holiday! I hope that each of you has a wonderful Valentine's Day, and remember, "These three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13:13

 

Sincerely,

 

Art Raimo
President
