Talking with Mrs. Tompkins
Dear Delone Catholic Families,

I hope that you and your family had a blessed and relaxing Easter break. With just seven weeks of school left, we are very busy preparing for the end of this school year and making plans for next year.

Students have earned a Freedom Friday Dress Down Day this week. However, we have noticed a slight decrease in the number of families screening their students. Please make it a priority to perform the COVID screen on your student(s) each morning and report the results in the PlusPortal. We appreciate your help with keeping our students, faculty and staff safe.

Report cards were emailed last night through our Plusportal system. If you have not received your student's report card, please check your spam folder and/or contact us as soon as possible. In the past, diocesan schools have experienced challenges with accounts through Comcast services.

I would like to provide you with some updates on end of year activities for the senior class. The senior students have voted to plan their own prom after graduation and not to have a school-sponsored prom this year. Baccalaureate Mass will be held at St. Joseph Church in Hanover on May 20. We will be having 2 masses that evening and seniors will be assigned a Mass time based on their last name. The times will be 5 and 7 p.m. The Senior Awards Ceremony will be an online presentation that will be shared with the senior students and their families as well as be available on our YouTube channel (Delone Catholic Broadcast Network). Graduation details are still forthcoming. Please understand with these events, we are bound by CDC, diocesan and parish guidelines for capacity.  

We had some wonderful volunteers come into school on Monday and decorate a hallway that is dedicated to celebrating our senior students. Along with colorful banners and streamers, each senior student has their senior portrait posted with their post-graduation plans. This festive tribute has sparked plenty of smiles among our seniors, and we are most thankful for the time and energy Mrs. Maitland and Mrs. Warehime (and daughters Sophia and Faith) put into creating this display.  

We are amazed every year to see so many students participate in spring sports and activities. We are grateful to our coaches and activity moderators who are able to dedicate their time and expertise to our students. As we count our blessings each day, I would like to leave you with this prayer:

I am so blessed, Heavenly Father, by the blood of Jesus which was shed so I can have eternal redemption. He is such a beautiful example to follow.
May I always be conscious of what He has already done and remember that I am guided by the Holy Spirit who resides in me.
I declare that as I draw from Your Word, I will, in turn, be able to shower blessings upon the people I encounter daily. I will magnify and glorify You in everything I do.

May God Bless You,
 
Donna Tompkins P '06, P'10

Virtue=Strength
This week our virtue theme is RELENTLESSNESS - the strength to continue striving for your goal when the going gets tough. Every day is an opportunity to be relentless… by hustling, constantly striving to improve, never giving up, fighting off feelings of laziness and fatigue. A relentless attitude is a championship attitude. This week, study a little harder when it gets a little tougher, for example when you get bored and tired.
