Principal's Letter

June 1, 2019


Dear Parents,


Over the course of the past few weeks, I’ve experienced quite a few “lasts” as principal. I prayed the rosary with the children, watched Lydia DeSalvatore crown our Blessed Mother during First Holy communion and attended a PTO meeting….for the last time. Todays letter is, of course, my final monthly communication to you all. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the community who have supported the school, but most especially me, over the past 11 years. I know there were times when my philosophy or pedogogy didn’t always meet every parent’s expectation. It is my hope, however, that every parent realize that every decision and action taken were done with the best interest of your children, and the entire school community, in mind.


The next three and a half weeks of school will truly fly by, as they are undoubtedly the busiest of the year. Here is a short list of the upcoming events. Please continue to check the school’s website ( for the most updated information.


ü  Ascension Thursday Liturgy 5/30 at 9:30 a.m. All are welcome to join us.

ü  Wednesday, June 5th- Field Day at SMS, weather permitting. Lunch (pizza) will be provided for your child. Please send them with a water bottle or drink for lunch.

ü  Members of our Choir will be performing at American Young Voices at the Times Union Center on Thursday, June 6th. Visit the website if you are interested in attending.

ü  June 7th- First Friday Liturgy at 11:00 followed by noon dismissal


I offer a gentle reminder that Thursday, June 20th is our final day of school. It is a HALF DAY and there is NO AFTERCARE that day.


And with that, I offer you my best wishes for a happy, healthy summer season. May our Lord continue to watch over, protect and guide you, and most especially your children, now and always. With my prayers for a blessed future…
