I will be leaving Tuesday evening, February 21st, to attend the Florida Catholic Conference. The conference begins Wednesday, February 22nd , in Orlando. The Florida Catholic Conference is held every two years. All the superintendents and principals in the state of Florida meet for three days to plan and discuss the future of Catholic education in our state. We will hear from noted speakers, who will speak about the future of Catholic education, explain specifics on curriculum, and explain objectives we need to meet to continue to be a successful and vibrant school.
We will collaborate on aligning curriculum both vertically and horizontally and discuss best practices for professional development. We also share best practices. There is a special meeting for Morning Star, which I will be attending Wednesday. This is very important as we continually align our program with the other Morning Star programs throughout the state so we are in unison as we meet the needs of our special students. This is a very exciting year as we meet with many new opportunities to grow for the future
I will return to school next Monday, February 27th. However, I have been asked to be on an accreditation team for a school in Jacksonville, Florida. I will be there March 1st, (Ash Wednesday) through Friday, March 3rd. I will drive home on Friday afternoon to be home for our Trivia Night, March 4th. I can’t wait to see everyone there!
Thank you for your continued support as we move Sacred Heart Cathedral School forward to make great things happen which include involving families in partnership with our faculty and staff. It is our objective to continually work towards building a relationship of partnership and family here at Sacred Heart Cathedral School and the Cathedral Parish.
Please know I am with you in prayer and as I will miss greeting you in the morning and in the afternoon when I am in Orlando and Jacksonville. Along with Father James, I will miss walking our students across the street as they are greeted by parents as they walk home. We are so blessed to have so many walkers that live within the community of the Cathedral Parish.
Thank you for all you have done to enrich this our school. You are the best and I feel blessed every day to have the opportunity to serve you.
