FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK:
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him,
rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught,
and overflowing with thankfulness.”
As I reflect on the many things for which I am thankful, I want to take this opportunity to share just a few of them with you: I am thankful for the children who come to school every day ready to learn. They are a daily reminder of what is important and why St. Amelia School is here. I am thankful for the Priests, Deacons, teachers, teacher aides, secretaries, and support staff, who really care about the students’ achievements and have the best interests of our children at heart. I am also thankful for our volunteers who enthusiastically contribute so much to our school.
Most importantly, I am thankful for the parents who believe in a Catholic school education and have faith in the St. Amelia School staff. They continue to share their most valuable possession with us and—in most cases— work hard and advocate to be a partner in their children’s faith development, education, safety and well-being. For this, I am ever so thankful
During the month of November as we say thank you to so many people who have touched the lives of the children in our building, this year we are proud to acknowledge Mrs. Colleen Milette. Mrs. Milette will be receiving the Tim Russert’s Sister Lucille Socciarelli / Father John Sturm – Making a Difference Award this January at the Catholic Education dinner.
Mrs. Milette goes out of her way to set a good example for her three-year-old students, always thinking of new and innovative projects for them. She is genuinely concerned about each and every one of the children and her love for them abounds. Her patience has no boundaries, and she helps to lay the foundation for the rest of their school years, and their life. It is amazing to the rest of us how much the children develop from September when they arrive at St. Amelia School until June, when they are ready to advance. Mrs. Milette has patience. Seriously, like the patience of a saint. She is able to maintain a smooth running Pre-school Program. Please mark your calendar for Thursday, January 31, 2019 and attend the dinner with us as we celebrate Catholic Education and Mrs. Milette.
I would like to wish all of you and your families a happy, healthy and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday. May God continue to bless you abundantly!
Yours with Christ,
