Thank you for all of your support and assistance this year as we worked together as a family for the successes of our wonderful young people. We could not have accomplished what we have done without the many hours you have offered as a volunteer, whether it is the help you have provided in the kitchen or coaching a sports team. For every moment you have spent as a volunteer being involved at Sacred Heart Cathedral School, I sincerely thank you. It has been a privilege to work with everyone, and I am grateful for this opportunity.
A special thank you to Coach Kelly and Coach Shaw for the awesome track victory on Saturday. I also thank all the parents and students who came to support our team during this event. You really are the best and you will celebrate your accomplishments as team members during the sports banquet this Saturday evening.
The Ribbon Mass was a beautiful event as our 8th graders wrapped up their day with a retreat planned by Mrs. Jacq Forte. They certainly enjoyed the setting at Bayview Park and we had a wonderful day.
First Communion is always memorable as these young people move forward in their faith journey. We are looking forward to tomorrow when students, led by the second grade, will bring flowers and recognize Mary as we do every May.
On the academic side, we are looking forward to middle school finals, some great field trips for the elementary students and two graduations.
Our 8th grade will graduate on Thursday, May 18th at 5:30 p.m., and our kindergarten students will graduate on Tuesday, May 23rd.
