“We all have a Guardian Angel who is loving, kind, and caring who’ll be there when we need someone to share the load we are bearing” ~ Author Unknown
A year like no other is coming to a close. I can attest this year my Guardian Angel earned his wings! I have had the wonderful opportunity to watch your children grow physically, socially, and most importantly spiritually. This year we experienced many changes, and formed many memories. The memories that were created this school year were made from such a unique experience and will be cherished forever. I am thankful to the faculty, staff, students, and parents for your support.
You have given me innumerable gifts of self. I personally would like to thank Brian Bartholomew for his service as the parent board president and all the parent board members who have served so well this year. I look forward to working with the new parent board for an exciting 2021/22 academic school year. I want to thank our current school board president Ceylon Lambert and the school board members for their support and contributions. I am grateful for the work done by our school curriculum team, led by a group of teachers, and the Health and Safety Board, led by Dr. Chris Celio. Both of these teams met almost every week over summer to put together a well-thought out plan for reopening a safe St. Juliana Falconieri School.
I would like to thank you, the St. Juliana School Community, for your support as we worked together in partnership for the wellness and health of all. This school year, I emphasized the importance of us working as a community and each of you have shown your true care and love for each other. Thank you for making this unique and difficult year manageable.
The students are the light of St. Juliana School. Their joy as they arrive each morning, even with their masks, brightens the worst day. This school year has brought about a sense of normalcy and community for our students. In turn, God has blessed me in so many ways this year by allowing me to share this community with you. I pray that you never lose the sense of uniqueness and community.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all in our community who are experiencing illness or loss. I wish God’s blessings upon all of you and your families.
Blessing to a fun and safe summer,
Dr. Manuel Gonzales Jr.
