Thank you to all who put together the great send off for Fr. Seamus on July 6th at
St. Augustine Church Hall. I was happy to see the many who were able to come
and say good by to him for his year of service with us. Keep him in prayer as he
begins his ministry directing the Diocesan Office of Vocations.
I wish to share with you the changes going on in our school right now as regards
As many of you know we are in the process of recruiting a new school principal
to replace Mrs. Janet Galati who is moving to Florida. There is now the potential
of three to four applicants for her position. The final decision will be made some
time in early August.
We are also looking for a French teacher to replace Mme. Louise Ricker who has
taken a position in Auburn. We wish her well and express our thanks to her for
the fine work she carried out in building up this program in our school.
We are now also inviting applications for a new Kindergarten teacher to replace
Mrs. Elaine Morin who has retired after many years of service. Again, we thank
her and wish her well.
Because of the departure of Mrs. Susan Moore, who has been offered a position
at Cony, we have asked Mrs. Mary Dionne to succeed Mrs. Moore with the
teaching of Mathematics and Science in the Jr. High classes. Mary has accepted
to do so. We thank Mrs. Moore for her dedicated service over several years to
our Jr. High students and wish her all the best.
We are also saying good by and thanks again to our Ed. Techs: Mrs. Kim
Hachey and Mrs. Sharon Murray. They have done a superb job in serving our
children entrusted to their care. All the best to both. Their work will now be carried
out by Mrs. Alyssa Benedict.
Our EXCEL group of parents and supporters is continuing efforts to raise financial
assistance to help keep children in our school and also to provide resources
for some of our school capital needs. The Parents Association has also dedicated
themselves to this effort with the resources they have. I am grateful to both
groups for their dedicated school support.
Enjoy this wonderful summer weather!
