Rocket Report
Vol. 2, No. 3, August 24, 2018
Words with Wilson
Each morning when I drive to school I reflect on the many blessings in my life.  Not only do I have a wonderful husband, and three healthy, happy children, I am also blessed with a wonderful community of faith-filled families, who greet me each day with kindness and a smile. Opening car doors is the best way to start my day, because each day I am reminded of just how lucky I am to be at St. Roch Catholic School.

St. Roch Catholic School is truly a blessing.  We are a community who works together to shape and form the youth God has entrusted to us.  Each morning I pray that I will lead with a servant’s heart and that I will always be thankful for all the blessings in my life.  All of you are a blessing. Thank you for choosing St. Roch and for allowing our staff to love, teach and nurture your children.

This community is indeed a blessing and I am lucky to come to a job where I never dread a Monday!

As a reminder, there is no school on Friday, August 31st  and Monday, September 3rd.

Have a great weekend!
