St. Rita School News: Nov. 21, 2017

Dear St. Rita Parents,

As we approach Thanksgiving Day, it seems fitting to reflect on the concept of gratitude for all those who make up our school community. I am thankful for energetic and hardworking teachers who are dedicated to providing your child/ren with an academically-excellent, safe, nurturing and faith-filled learning environment each and every day. I am thankful for our dedicated support staff that answers your questions, prepares and serves lunches, keeps our school clean, takes care of sick children, provides emotional or academic support and enrichment and handles any other situation that may occur. I am thankful for our hardworking and energetic students who bring a smile to my face each and every day. I am grateful to Fr. DiSciacca and the parishioners at Divine Mercy Parish for their continued support. I am grateful to our parents and grandparents for the many sacrifices they make in order to send your child to St. Rita School. God has blessed each and every one by bringing us together as the St. Rita School family. Throughout this holiday season and beyond may God continue to bless and protect you and your family.

Over the weekend one of our school moms shared that her cousin’s 9 year old son is battling a very aggressive form of brain cancer and the prescribed treatment is no longer working. She has asked that her son’s class make holiday cards for this young man, Sebastian, in order to brighten his day and help him and his family make some lasting Christmas memories. If you would like to join in the effort to help brighten Sebastian’s day please send a card to Sebastian Bradley, PO Box. 1495, Lockport, NY 14094.

I’d like to welcome back Mrs. Kathy Brandi who will be returning to our school as the Instructional Assistant in grades 4 & 5. Kathy begins her new position after Thanksgiving. She will work daily with the teachers in both grade levels to support and enrich the educational experiences of the intermediate level students.

Thank you for entrusting your children to our care. On behalf of the faculty and staff, I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.

God Bless,
Mrs. Tiezzi
