President's Update

Dear Families,

My best friend in high school, Matt, had a habit of driving fast. One day after classes, he raced past the front of school a million miles per hour right in front of our science teacher, Mr. Lindow. Mr. Lindow quickly hopped in his car and followed the speeding vehicle down the street. Matt was running low on fuel and stopped at a gas station up the road. While Matt stood there pumping gas, Mr. Lindow drove up behind him, got out of his car and confronted the teenager.

“Hey, you can’t drive that fast by the school!” Mr. Lindow exclaimed.

“Mr. Lindow, we aren’t in school right now,” Matt’s replied. 

Matt had delivered a factual, yet disrespectful answer. Saying nothing, Mr. Lindow calmly walked back to his car and drove away. My friend shrugged it off. Since the incident did not take place on school property during the school day, he was sure that it was over. The matter was closed... that was, until the next day of school. 

Mr. Lindow was waiting for Matt outside his first-period class. "We are in school now,” Mr. Lindow sternly stated. 

I won’t go into the details regarding what happened next. However, I can assure you that Matt never raced by the front of the school again.

As the well-earned summer approaches, I wish all of our MC students a safe and restful break from classes. Please remember that each one of us represents Malden Catholic - even when we aren’t in school. Our connection and responsibility to each other transcends the physical building and our academic classes. Summer is a time to enjoy family and friends, and refresh ourselves for the next school year.

Enjoy the summer!
