May Newsletter

  FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK   Dear Parents: In the whole history of the world, nobody had ever been quite as brave as Mary, a teenager from a little, unknown town in Israel.  Everything depended on what she would say when the angel Gabriel announced to her that she would become pregnant and give birth […]

April Newsletter

Dear Parents, At this time we turn our thoughts to Easter and the joy and the hope that it represents.   Without Easter, without the Resurrection, we would face a future of darkness rather than the promise of eternal life.   Easter is truly a time of celebration!   As we see signs of renewed life all around […]

March Newsletter

Dear Parents: Lent is the yearly celebration by the Church of its corporate conversion in Jesus Christ.  Lent has two major purposes: It recalls or prepares for baptism, and emphasizes a spirit of penance.  Through forty days of closer attention to God’s word and of more prayer, believers are prepared to celebrate the Paschal Mystery.

Summer Newsletter

Dear Parents: “In the same way your light must shine before others, so that, seeing your good works, they may give praise to your Father in heaven.” Matt. 5:16 As I begin my twenty-third year as principal of St. Amelia School, I am grateful for the many blessings I have received. These years have been […]

June Newsletter

Dear Parents: When the school grounds have gone quiet, the classroom walls are bare, the sounds of children laughing are missing and everything “school” is being finalized is the time I realize and reflect on how blessed we all are to be part of the ministry of St. Amelia Catholic School. I can’t believe the […]
