The end of the school year is here. We made it through two years of dealing with Covid. Hopefully now we can look at Covid in the rearview mirror.
Last Wednesday, June 8 our eighth graders graduated. On Monday, our prek-3 and 4 had their Moving Up Ceremonies, and our final week of school was capped off with a Kindergarten Graduation. " Oh, The Places You'll Go!
As we close out the 2021-22 school year I offer my thanks to a great number of people who make St. Therese the wonderful school it is.
I will start with my secretary, Ms. Suzanne Verba-Hopkins. She is the engine of the school. Without her insight and work ethic St. Therese could not be where it is today. Our enrollment remains healthy with waiting lists in several grades and I credit her for the increased enrollment over the past three years. We are blessed to have someone of her caliber serving our school.
Thank you to our outstanding faculty who teach for all of the right reasons. Thank you to all of our aides who assist our teachers and students in the classroom. Thank you Bernie and Candy Coll for maintaining and sanitizing our building during Covid. Thank you Vince Esterly for taking care of all our technology needs and keeping us up to date with the latest technological teaching tools. The new Promethean Boards that have been installed for September are incredible. Thank you to our wonderful HSA parents who navigated meetings and fundraisers through Covid. Thank you parents for entrusting your kids to St. Therese School. We are aware of the sacrifices you make so they can attend St. Therese.
Finally, thank you to Mrs. Dulny, formerly Ms. Cornish for the 19 years she dedicated to St. Therese School teaching English Language Arts and to Deacon Stuart Murphy for the past six years teaching Advanced Math to our students. Mrs. Dulny will be pursuing a career as a Learning Disabilities Teaching Consultant, and Deacon Murphy will be moving out of state to Pennsylvania to be closer to his children and grandchildren. We will miss them and their expertise.
I hope everyone has a very stress free and relaxing summer. I will be getting much therapy on the golf course before September gets here.. God bless and be safe!
