Dear Parents of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School,

Happy Last Day of School! 

The closing of this school year is even more bittersweet than most. Not being able to say good-bye in person has been difficult. I’m so grateful to Father Bruce for such a nice closing Mass yesterday. I hope you also enjoyed your Step-Up Days as we look forward to returning to campus in August and meeting our new teachers who are already excitedly anticipating the return of our Dolphins! Please be sure to tune in today to our DNN Closing Awards Ceremony at 10:00 am. We have so much to celebrate! 

I want to take a moment to thank our faculty and staff who have hit special milestones in their service to St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School:

  • 5 Years: Liz Curtin, Kari Golden, Jill Gregory, Lexie Lyons, Kristi Parks
  • 10 Years: Kelly Sturgeon
  • 15 Years: Linda Dueitt, Susan Leddy, Monique Loyo
  • 20 Years: Cathy Russell

One of the hardest part about closing the school year, is saying good-bye. We are sad that some of our families must continue next year in another school. We are excited for the Class of 2020 as they start high school, but we know our hallways won’t be the same without them. And, we are also disappointed to say good-bye to the following teachers who will not be returning next year. Good luck to Ann-Marie Dalton, Linda Dueitt, Kari Golden, Jill Gregory, Lincy Jacob, Janay O’Connor and Olga Wunch as they say good-bye to St. Anthony and start their next adventures. They will be missed. 

My prayer is that you have a relaxing, healthy and safe summer as we look forward to our 2020-2021 school year. A Summer Update will be sent in June with more details about the upcoming year and I will continue to communicate any other details as I receive them. . Take care and see you at Meet the Teacher on August 11th!

Only by His Grace,

Veronica D. Tucker
Principal
