From the Superintendent's Desk

Dear Friends:

As the Easter season is upon us, we celebrate the greatest feast in our Catholic calendar, we share the joy of the resurrection. Easter is a day of celebration because it represents the fulfillment of our faith as Christians. St. Paul wrote that, “Unless Christ rose from the dead, our faith is in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:17).

Since a major part of our mission as Catholic schools is to proclaim the Gospel of Our Lord, it is at this time of year that our children are learning about the meaning of Easter and understanding that, on the one hand, it is about mourning the death of Jesus, but on the other hand, it is about celebrating his rebirth. It is a time when we reflect on the life of Jesus who suffered, died, and rose again as we also hope to rise to new life with and in Him. 

April is also a time of joy as we welcome the Spring season, which brings us better weather, leaves on the trees, plantings, and more. 

It is also a time of joy as we have finally made headway with the COVID-19 vaccine and immunizations. As I reported earlier, it has been a blessing that our schools have been open since the beginning of the school year with minimal disruptions. Although all our schools have remote learning protocols, children need the social interactions and all the other academic benefits of being physically in school. Hopefully as we continue to move forward with our fight against this disease, all our lives will be more manageable. 

I would like to thank all the administrators, teachers and staff who have made this school year possible for our students. I must also thank all the parents for their cooperation and help during this somewhat difficult school year. We now hope that our next school year will begin under normal circumstances. 

I hope that your Easter Sunday was a joyous one with family. 

 

God Bless, 

George A. Milot, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
