Little did Mr. Conroy know when he entered the Parish Activity Center this morning with our Pastor Fr. Lee Roos that he would find the whole school waiting for him. After weeks of preparation, Mr. Conroy’s 20th Anniversary Celebration was underway! It was an opportunity for students from every grade level to pay tribute to Mr. Conroy and thank him for his years of dedication and steady, faith-filled leadership.
Pre-Kindergarten students kicked off the presentation of gifts with a Beatles tribute (We Love You, Ya Ya), followed by spiritual bouquets, a time capsule to be opened upon retirement, a food drive for the Bethany Food Pantry in Mr. Conroy’s name, a beautiful tree of life painting, a performance of My Favorite Things, a spiral bound Prayer Book with special prayers to reference throughout the day, and a video presentation featuring images from the early days to present year. Mr. Conroy was then presented with a gift card from the students purchased through the proceeds from a secret .50 per student collection held before Easter break.
In addition to our students, teachers, staff, and parish priests, Sr. Bernadette McManigal, BVM (Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Arlington Diocese) and Sr. Karl Ann Homberg, SSJ (Assistant Superintendent for Leadership) made the trip from Arlington to be a part of this special celebration.
What a blessing Mr. Conroy is to our school community!
