Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Veterans’ day Prayer Service has been moved to Monday, November 12th, the day of the observance.  The service will take place in our gym at 8:15 and parents are welcome to attend.

The much-anticipated Middle States Accreditation Team visit will take place next week, from Tuesday, November 13th through Friday, November 16th.    We will welcome our guests at a special program at 4:30 on Tuesday, followed by a dinner reception in our gym.  As a result, there will be no afterschool activities on Tuesday, however there will be Aftercare.   The team will spend the remainder of the week with us, visiting classes and meeting with teachers, staff members, students and parents to learn about our school and to determine if they will recommend that we maintain our accreditation.  On Friday, the team will join us for Mass at 10:00 at St. Ann Church and will meet with our faculty and staff to share their findings.  There will be a half-day on Friday so the team can meet with the staff.  Again, Aftercare will be available.

Preparation for this visit began more than 18 months ago and I appreciate your patience and thank all of the parents who responded to the parent survey and who helped us prepare in any way.  Most especially I would like to thank Donna Murphy and all of the HSA officers, class parents, committee chairs and volunteers past and present for all that they have done to make our school the special place it is for children.  The teachers and I truly appreciate your support.  We all have much to be proud of and we are honored to share our story with the folks from Middle States.

Thanks again and God Bless you all!

Matthew McGrath
