The Sentinel – Volume 10, Issue 29

Message from the Principal This week our Church celebrates the greatest mystery of our faith ~ the Passion, Death and Resurrection of our Lord and Savior.  As a school community, we prepare for our journey into the three holiest days of the year, the Triduum, through prayer and tradition. Beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, the students and faculty will gather in the church for our annual Holy Thursday Prayer Service.  After listening to Scripture readings and reflecting on the example of Jesus, each of the children will participate in the “hand-washing” ceremony that has become a long-standing tradition in our school. Following the prayer service, the students will gather in the gym for the 7th grade portrayal of the Passion Play.  Through music and dramatic presentation, middle … [Read more...]

Message from the Principal This week I wish to share with you important news about changes in staffing for the upcoming school year.  Mr. Richardson, middle school math teacher, has decided that he will not return to teach at All Saints next year.  While he continues to recover from surgery and remains in good health at this time, he has decided to pursue other opportunities during the 2010-2011 academic year. I am pleased to announce that Miss Joanna McCullough will be the new middle school math teacher at All Saints beginning in August.  During the current year, she has served as fourth grade teacher and, as such, is already familiar with diocesan and school procedures.  As you may recall, Miss McCullough joined the All Saints faculty last summer after graduating from Franciscan … [Read more...]

Message from the Principal Congratulations to the students in our second grade program who received the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time during the past two weeks.  Following a beautiful prayer service led by our pastor, Fr. Cilinski, each of the children encountered Christ in this special Sacrament of healing and grace.  Congratulations to all of the children and thank you Mrs. Evans and Mrs. Cummings for preparing them so well for this very important milestone.

Message from the Principal Often when thinking of our school community, a word that comes to mind is “vibrancy”.  There are so many wonderful events and activities that surround the life of our community.  More importantly, there is a spirit of faith, joy and welcome that is consistently noted by visitors to our school. As the research has shown, a high level of parent involvement is a strong predictor for high achievement in a school.  At All Saints we know this to be the case.  Through the contributions of parent volunteers, we are able to provide a remarkable experience for our students.  From the many parents who serve as coaches and group leaders, to those who work quietly behind the scenes in the library and cafeteria, our school has obtained great success because so many are … [Read more...]
