“Prayer is the best weapon we possess; it is the key that opens the heart of God.”-St. Padre Pio
It is hard to believe that another school year has come to an end. I have had the wonderful opportunity to watch your children grow physically, socially, and most importantly spiritually. This year has been one with many great memories; Fall Festival, AdventProgram, Catholic Schools Week activities, the Auction, Fish Fry, the Talent Show, First Communion, May Crowning, the amazing Spring Sing, and the eighth grade East Coast expedition. Each of these memories and the others not mentioned carry such a uniqueness that makes the Saint Juliana School Community so special.
I want to thank the parents of Saint Juliana for their continued support. I thank you for entrusting Saint Juliana School with the spiritual and academic formation of your child. I believe the faculty and staff do a wonderful job of working in collaboration with each of you. At Saint Juliana we are truly blessed to have such an amazing school community, the partnership is evident.
The students are the light of Saint Juliana. Their joy as they arrive each morning brightens the worst day. Genuine caring for each member of the community by the others is rare indeed. God has blessed me in so many ways by allowing me to share this community with you. I pray that you never lose the sense of uniqueness and community that you have now.
We say goodbye to Linda Augustin, Mary Donnelly, Cienna Palos, and Jamie Baro who gave service to Saint Juliana and did an outstanding job within our school community. We wish you God's blessing on you and your family as you embark on your new journey. Please pray for us as we go through this transition.
Lastly, attached to this letter is a brief survey that I would ask each of you to complete by next Friday, June 16th. In a continued effort for school improvement, the Saint Juliana School Board has put together a survey. I am asking for your support in completing this survey. All responses will be kept anonymous. Once all data has been gathered it will be shared with the school community.
Blessings to a wonderful summer,
Dr. Manuel Gonzales Jr.
