The Sentinel – November 26, 2013

Principal’s Message With a record attendance of more than 900 students, parents and staff, the Thanksgiving Luncheon has continued to grow as a beloved tradition in our community.  It is always a joy to see so many parents who return year after year for this wonderful occasion.      None of this would be possible without our outstanding kitchen team.  I want to extend a special word of thanks to “Chef” Wendy Matner (Director of Cafeteria Services), Mrs. Liz Werling (Assistant), Mrs. Wilma Marsengill (Cafeteria Bookkeeper) and Mrs. Robin Speicher (Assistant).  Beginning early on Sunday, they cooked and prepared food throughout the day and into the evening hours.  I am tremendously grateful for their dedication, professionalism and enthusiasm.   The success of the luncheon was also made … [Read more...]

November 20, 2013 Principal’s Message This week I want to congratulate and thank the PTO for hosting the Big Bash on Saturday evening.  It was a wonderful occasion that celebrated the spirit of our school and raised funds in support of our programs.  Without the steadfast commitment of Mrs. Elissa Hackerson and Mrs. Christian Cobb, the co-chairs, along with the steady support of countless volunteers, the event simply could not have been a success.  I thank them for their generous sharing of time and talent over the course of many months as they prepared for our first-ever Big Bash.  ***************************************************************************** Three days and counting until the launch of our new middle school robotics program!  We welcome Sr. Bernadette … [Read more...]

The Sentinel – November 13, 2013

November 13, 2013 Principal’s Message On Saturday evening our school will host the Big Bash, a new approach to a beloved tradition!  As we gather for this event for the first time in the newly renovated Parish Activity Center, I am reminded of the original “Harvest Auction” which took place in the cafeteria many years ago.   Little would we have guessed that one day in the future, we would be able to bring the auction back home to such a beautiful space. How blessed we are! While the venue has changed over the course of many years, the cause remains the same.  The funds raised from the Big Bash will enable us to continue to provide our students with a premier educational experience.  With the proceeds from the event we will be able to support the fine work of the Parent-Teacher … [Read more...]
