Principal's Letter 

June 13, 2018

 Dear Families,
The bells are off, the building is quiet and the office staff is busy closing one school year and preparing for the next. I want, once again, to say thank you  for your amazing generosity to the faculty and staff HOT Fund. All faculty, aides, office staff, and extended care personnel were given a "certificate" to go shopping at the Mount Carmel "Scrip Store". I cannot tell you how excited they get when the "certificate" is placed in their box!  Please take a moment to read the notes of thanks from the women and men who worked with your children throughout the school year. I wish all of you a blessed and safe summer. 
Teresa Anthony  
Thank you again for your generosity. The Hot Fund helps finish the school year on a high note. Have an amazing summer with your kids.

Thank you so much for your generous end of year gift! I look forward to treating myself to something special this summer. It was a joy being in the classroom with your children this year.  Enjoy your summer!
Jenny Britt, Classroom Aide

Thank you very much for your generous gift to the HOT Fund! I can't wait to spend it on something fun for the summer. I hope you all have a restful and safe summer break! See you in the fall!
Jennifer Bruzzone, 6th Grade
Thank you once again for your most generous HOT Fund donations!  I decided to use your end-of-year gift to invest in a stationary vacuum cleaner -- not the most romantic purchase, I know, but one that has already made my life much easier (as those of you who are fellow dog-owners will understand!).  It has become our family's favorite new toy, and we all delight in feeding it regularly.  It particularly likes eating the sand that somehow always makes its way into our home -- and dog fur, of course.  Thank you for your thoughtfulness.  I hope you all have a lovely summer!

Parents, thank you for this wonderful gift to start my summer.  This year I'm resolved to finally do something with lasers and/or cutting blades.  (Oh yeah, and that "clean the garage" project.)  Specifically, I'm tired of replacing paper labels on our 240 or so student laptops, so I plan to look into engraving them with a computer controlled router or laser.  It'll be fun building the equipment and learning to use it.  Even if I don't achieve my specific goal, I will have scads of fun making a mess. Thank you to everyone for this year's end of school year events, it was extraordinary.
Christopher Lane, Tech Support
Once again, I'm very appreciative to the families for this lovely gift. I will spend it spoiling myself. Happy summer.

I will think of you as I shop at Safeway to buy the ingredients for my great niece's first birthday cake in a couple weeks (I still can't believe my brother is a grandpa!) and as I shop at Whole Foods for the wide variety of summer fruit that we're so lucky to have. Thank you so much for your generosity! I wish you all a safe and fun summer! :)
