CEW: Celebrating Our Larger Community

Catholic Education Week: Celebrating Our Larger Community
Posted on 05/08/2020

This year’s theme for Catholic Education Week is Igniting Hope and I can’t think of a more fitting theme during this unprecedented time. During adversity we must turn to our faith and remember that we are people of hope - brighter days will prevail and it is hope and faith that will guide us there. 

Although we are celebrating Catholic Education Week in a much different way this year, this is still a wonderful opportunity to recognize how fortunate we are to share in the gift of Catholic education. It is also the perfect time to recognize everyone in our school communities who continue to work together, during these challenging times, to provide our students with the very best possible faith-based education. 

Each day this week, I feel blessed to be able to appreciate and say thank you to each group who makes up our collective whole. 

So many of our accomplishments result from the support of our larger school community. Now more than ever, we rely on the important work of our parents, guardians and volunteers in supporting students in our new distance learning environment. We also relied on the guidance and leadership of our trustees who are maintaining important connections with their respective communities during this time. I also want to recognize our retirees - we may not be able to physically get together at the end of this school year to recognize your many years of dedication, but we are certainly thinking about you and looking forward to celebrating you at a later date.

God bless each of you for the work you do each and every day.
