Principal's Message

September 1, 2018

One Body, One Spirit, One Community….Unity!

As our new school year is about to get underway, I keep thinking about a recent professional development session I attended with our diocesan Principals. The presenter shared with us his thoughts about integrating Jesus’ Golden Rule into our communities. He offered a slight spin worthy of considering. “Do unto others as they would have you do unto them.”  This shift offers us a chance to truly consider the needs of those around us. Our daily and regular interactions with others can impact so much. By considering my neighbors needs first, it frees me to treat everyone with dignity, respect and compassion. This is a truly noble cause. I am hopeful that we can unite in our common purpose to serve each other for everyone’s benefit.

“Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start all over again. That’s the way life is, with a new game everyday, and that’s the way baseball is. “ It has been said that sports imitates life. This quote from Bob Feller certainly helps frame a healthy perspective as our new school year is about to get underway. Let me take this opportunity to welcome our new families and returning families. I know this is going to be a great school year! Yours in Christ, Mr. Michael Connell Principal

Classroom spotlight: 7th Grade

Our 7th Graders were asked to reflect on two important days in November, Election Day and Veterans Day! They reminded us how wonderful it is that we live in the USA!

Joseph- It is important to vote so we have a chance to have the person we want elected.

Grace- It is important to vote because everyone has a right for their voice to be heard.

Nicholas- Voting is the best way to get your opinion out fairly, instead of arguing.

Kerri- Election Day is important because it is how we get a say in our government.

Claudia- We are lucky we live in the USA. Not all countries give people the right to vote.

Katelyn- On Veterans Day we should honor people who risked their lives for the greater good of our country.

Kristen- My favorite Veteran is my Grandpa, who fought in the Korean War. Veterans make a lot of sacrifices like time away from their families.

Hadley- Thank you Veterans for fighting for our country.

Michael- Since the Veterans supported our country, we should support them to thank them for their service.

Ashton- Veterans fought for our country, so we should thank them always, not just on Veterans Day.

Leah- My papa served in Vietnam. He risked his life for his country.

Abby- On Veterans Day we should honor the people who made the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives.

Jack- Thank you Veterans for risking your lives to serve our country and protect us.
