Hello St. Al Families and Friends,Anchor

We are about to close another year at St. Alphonsus Parish School and what a year it has been.  The past three months gave us quite a challenge in school and spirit.  A lot was asked of all of us as COVID-19 swept the globe.  We learned new ways to pull together as a community and realized what we loved most about our school family.  It was not an easy road.  We hit some roadblocks along the way but we persevered.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Hello St. Alphonsus Community,Anchor

This week I have been struggling to process the events that are unfolding in our country.  The violence and destruction hopefully did not overshadow the message of justice for George Floyd and others suffering injustice and racism with their lives.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Hello St. Al Family and Friends,

This week, my morning announcements have focused on joy.  I have been encouraging students to find joy in everyday experiences and in the comfort of God.  Looking outside today, it is easy to see gloom and dwell on the darkness in the world around us.  But, if we choose to find joy, we can find the hope we need to push through and find the light.  Sometimes we can’t do this alone and the support from God and our community is necessary to push through the darkness and into the light.

Hello St. Al Family and Friends,

As some of you may know, the school morning announcements theme this week has been all about our Holy Mother Mary, in celebration of May as Mary month.  In this newsletter and in morning announcements, I have often discussed my personal ties to Mary.

Hello St. Al Family and Friends,

Easter is right around the corner. Growing up, Easter for me meant a beautiful new dress with white tights and polished shoes.  It meant a big meal after a special morning at church.  It meant laughter, celebration, and family as we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Hello St. Al Family and Friends,

I hope all are well.  We have been busy getting everything online for our students and can’t wait to share it with our families.  It is a bittersweet shift as it means we will not be seeing all our wonderful students in person for a while.
