There are many things that St. Isabella students are thankful for in their lives. Our students thank God for their faith, families, friends, homes, safety, their pets, and attending St. Isabella School. There is nothing more heart warming than to hear our students say I love school!
As you prepare for Thanksgiving, the faculty, staff and I would like to express our gratitude for sharing your wonderful children with us. We are grateful for the kindness and respect they show towards each other, which is a reflection of the love and care they receive from you. Take time during the Thanksgiving holiday to reflect upon the gifts God has bestowed upon you, especially the love of your family.
I would like to take this opportunity to share a litany of gratitude for the kindness and generosity shared by so many in our community.
In Gratitude for our Parent Club Board who organized many community building and fundraising events this fall, the Auction being the highlight.
In Gratitude for our School Advisory Board who have dedicated many hours to help ensure the successful running of the school. They lead a very profitable Annual Fund Campaign.
In Gratitude for our faculty and staff who greet the children each day ready with carefully planned lessons and activities in an endeavor to meet the needs of each student in a balanced and supportive environment.
In Gratitude for you, the parents and grandparents who volunteer in so many ways, inside and outside the classroom. Your presence enriches the learning experience and helps to create a most vibrant school environment.
In Gratitude for our students who strive to be Key Players by modeling the Keys to the Kingdom themselves and to one another. The students are truly building God’s Kingdom as they serve others so kindly, our seventh graders so graciously served a Thanksgiving dinner to the seniors at Freitas House.
May God bless you and your families this Thanksgiving as you count your many blessings.
With loving gratitude,
