“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” William Butler Yeats

Dear St. Stan’s Families:
As the finest teacher ever, Jesus ignited a fire that continues to burn bright over 2000 years after being lit. Your commitment to a Catholic education for your children is the strongest message you can send to your children, as well as the world, that you are seeking the light of inquiry and faith to be lit and sustained in your children. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of this journey with you and our students.
Next week proves to be quite busy for our students. On Tuesday, October 17th, we will be conducting our clean communities clean up around our school grounds. Students should come to school in their gym uniforms. On Wednesday, I am excited to be sharing breakfast with our exceptional students of the month and Friday, October 20th will be our grades five through eight field trip. Information about the field trip will be sent out separately.
I am looking forward to our Coach Bingo fundraiser Friday evening. This fundraiser raises money for our school and students and is vital to our continued success. My appreciation is vast for the ladies of the HSA who coordinate this and put on an amazing event. There will be a note sent home to aftercare students in reference to changes we will need to make on Friday to accommodate this event. I look forward to seeing many of you Friday evening!
You are in my prayers.
