PRINCIPAL’S CORNER – January 24, 2019


Message from the Principal

Hello St. Al Families,

While this was a short week, it was definitely packed with fun and learning. This week I have a few more announcements about some staffing changes.

First, I want to extend a warm welcome to our new Marketing and Communications Director, Sue Pierce.  Sue is a St. Al’s parent and has been a wonderful asset to our community the past few years.  She was previously volunteering as our amateur historian and has been working on prep for Jog-athon.  We are so incredibly happy to have her on board in her new official role in the Development Office.

My other staffing news is also related to the Development Office.  After working as our Development Director for the past two years, Lena Anderson has accepted a new role in the Business Office at Holy Names.  This is a dream come true for Lena as she has been wanting to return to her high school roots for quite some time.  While we are so very sad to see her go, we know this new role is a perfect fit for her talents and treasure. Lena has been an incredible member of our team, working on the auction, handling the Annual Fund accounting and tracking, assisting with the start of our endowment, and so much more.  I want to send a personal heartfelt thank you to Lena for everything she has done for the school and we all look forward to continuing a partnership with her as a St. Al’s parent.

The Development Director position will be posted on the Archdiocese Catholic schools job site.  Feel free to contact me or the front office for more information.

Thank you to everyone for a great week.  Stay tuned for a direct email from me about a few further items and details about Catholic Schools Week.

Thank you,
Kathleen Cifu
