As we help our children put on their school uniforms and new shoes, pack
all those supplies into their clean backpacks, make sure there is a note of
encouragement in their lunch bag, walk them into their new classroom and kiss
them goodbye – let us remember to take a moment to count our blessings.
Thank you God for our children and their classmates, for their teachers, for administration and staff, and that we have the opportunity to give our children a quality education. Thank you also to all the parents and families (past and present) who enrich our school communities, and to our spiritual leaders (Father Aidan here at St. Mary School) who pray for and with us.
We have so much to be grateful for as we head into the new year. Here is to a safe and sucessful 2012-2013 School Year. Amen
