Today we begin Catholic Schools Week. At our Masses we will have students from St. Joan of Arc School participate at Mass and speak after Communion. We have a wonderful school here in our parish. As a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, the National Education Association has recognized us as an exemplary school. The award acknowledges and validates the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in striving for - and attaining - exemplary achievement. What a wonderful honor to have achieved this honor!
I strongly encourage our families to take a look at our school and see if this might not be a good fit for you and your family. Not only do we provide an academically excellent education and safe environment, but we also form our students in the Catholic Faith which is at the heart of what a Catholic school is all about. Father Arena and I both go into the school each week and teach your children. I am always amazed at the knowledge of the students, especially in the area of religion. Even the kindergarten students can tell me much about the Faith.
One of the important missions of the Church is to pass on the Faith to the next generation. I am so happy that we are doing it so well here at St. Joan of Arc School. A special thanks to Sister Eileen, our faculty and staff, our students, and to all the parents of our school. St. Joan of Arc School is a place where we can be especially proud! God bless you all.
