Happy New Year! I want to remind you of our school-wide theme “Living the Joy of the Gospel”. My New Year’s resolution is to spread JOY . . . that joy to all those around me. I will be challenging my students and staff to see through the eyes of compassion and understanding the heart that desires to impact others. We can make a difference one moment at a time if we all spread that joy.
I’m certainly looking forward to a great 2018. Life isn’t perfect but being at St. Amelia School with the staff and students is a true blessing. So as we begin the second semester and those long winter days settle in, it’s so important to eat healthy, wash our hands, get plenty of rest, dress warm, and be at school on time ready to learn every day. Let’s all make the most of 2018 and do our best all the time. “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”, Philippians 4:13. I pray that God will keep all the families and students of St. Amelia School safe and healthy, and help them to do their very best every day!
I want to open the New Year with a message that we see at many football games. It is the famous verse John 3:16–“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” He reminded us that we are greatly loved by God, and we need to be loving. It’s a great reminder as we start the New Year – 2018.
We all need to make a difference with creative thinking and uniquely looking at the ordinary; together we all will show people all over the world how easy it is to make a difference. I will empower my students and staff each week with a new habit. Spreading JOY is about seeing things differently, stepping up, and making choices to lead the way in finding beauty in the ordinary. As you share or see that joy, please let me know so I can share the good news with others.
Please share the good news about St. Amelia Catholic School.
