As I near the end of my term as principal of St. Stan’s, I would like to tell you how much I have enjoyed meeting many of you and also working closely with your children. I feel very privileged to have been blessed to serve you the past year and a half and I’m proud of what our administration has done to continue to offer our students an excellent Catholic school education. I am confident that I leave the school in the very capable hands of Mrs. Elena Malinconico who has such an exciting vision for St. Stan’s. I know you will offer her the same support and cooperation that you have given to me. Know that I will miss the students and will continue to keep all of them in my thoughts and prayers.
Today we say goodbye to a few of our students who will also be leaving St. Stan’s and wish them much success in their new schools. Tomorrow we will hold our Awards Ceremony at 7:50. Our end of the year Mass will be celebrated at 9:00 followed by Moving-Up Day when the students will meet their new teachers and remain with them until dismissal at noon. Please join me in praying for the students who will be receiving Confirmation Saturday at noon.
Students’ supply lists, summer reading, and math packets will be found on line. If anyone has a problem printing them out, you may pick up copies at the school office. Beginning Monday, our summer office hours will be from 8:30 to 1:30 Monday through Thursday. Since we will be having full days from Wednesday to Friday the first week of school, students will need to bring lunch from home on those days. The lunch menu for the rest of September will be given to them on their first day of school.
Please be sure to review the June 12th's weekly white envelope that contains the 2014-15 school calendar for school vacations and holidays.
On behalf of the faculty and staff, may I wish all of you a very happy and healthy vacation. Although St. Stan’s has a strong Polish heritage, may I bestow on you the same Irish blessing I offered to our graduates last week:
May the road rise up to meet you;
May the wind be always at your back;
May the sun shine warmly upon your face;
May the rains fall softly upon your fields;
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Mrs. Patricia Graham
