The Sentinel – Volume 10, Issue 36

Message from the Principal On Monday afternoon the students gathered in the gym for a surprise assembly in honor of Fr. Bob on the occasion of his 10thanniversary as pastor of All Saints.  Through songs, dance and poetry, each grade level of students presented tributes incorporating those things which are most dear to Fr. Bob ~ faith, fellowship, Shutters (his stuffed penguin), music, and of course, the Redskins! The program concluded with a PowerPoint presentation of photos of Fr. Bob over the course of the past ten years.  With James Taylor’s You’ve Got a Friend as the background track, it was a stirring tribute to our beloved pastor, highlighting the countless ways that he has touched so many lives during his time with us. As a school community we thank Fr. Bob, not only for his … [Read more...]

The Sentinel – Volume 10, Issue 35

Message from the Principal The celebration of our distinction as a 2009 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence continued last Thursday as our community gathered for Mass with Bishop Loverde.  The special liturgy provided us with an opportunity to thank God for the many blessings we have received as a school and, more importantly, the many wonderful people who are part of our story.  It was truly a joy to have Bishop Loverde as our celebrant and to know of his pride in our success.  In recognition of our Blue Ribbon status, Bishop Loverde has granted our community a “day off from school”.  As such, All Saints will not be required to make up the required third “snow day”.  The final day of school will be Wednesday, June 16th. Our school was also honored to have Senator Charles Colgan in … [Read more...]

Message from the Principal It has been a joy and a privilege to observe our second grade students receiving their First Communion over the course of the past two weeks.  I am so proud of each of them and our school community rejoices in their reception of this Sacrament for the first time.  May they always be as close to Jesus as they are at this moment!  I wish to thank our second grade teachers, Mrs. Cummings and Mrs. Evans, for so beautifully preparing the children.  Through their teaching and by their example they inspire the children to grow in their faith each day. *          *          *          *          *          *          *          *          *          *          *          * Thank you to all parents and guardians for your support of the new dismissal system.  More … [Read more...]

The Sentinel – Volume 10, Issue 33

Message from the Principal After observing the first two days of our new afternoon dismissal, I am very pleased with the progress we are making.  Again, I wish to thank all parents and guardians for their careful attention to the details.  With all of us working together, we have implemented a complex new system with minimal disruption.  I also want to congratulate Mrs. Campagna and the faculty on a job very well done.  Through their dedication and commitment to “getting it right”, they have successfully designed and implemented an effective new carpool system for our community.  What an outstanding team they are! For the past several days we have been blessed with dry weather, providing ideal conditions for introducing the new program. Now that everyone is familiar with the new … [Read more...]
