From the Principal

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.


Hello Everyone!

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to express our gratitude for the many blessings in our lives.  I am truly blessed and grateful for the opportunity to serve this awesome community.  GOD IS GOOD!

I am so very grateful for the support of Fr. Presta, Fr. Hank, and Sr. Molly who each does so much for the school community. Their deep love for the school community is apparent on a daily basis as they certainly bring each of us closer to God.

I am also grateful for the dedicated men and women who serve as teachers or staff members here at SES.  They joyfully share their gifts with our students each and every day. They are an exceptional group of people who go above and beyond in helping our students grow not only spiritually, but intellectually, socially, and emotionally. 

I am grateful for the support of our parents in creating an outstanding partnership with our teachers and serve our school community in so many ways.  From FSA to the parent volunteers for lunch duty, class parties, athletics, and scouting, we are blessed that so many of our parents are willing to donate their time, talent, or treasure.

Finally, I am grateful for the students who come to school each day ready to learn and grow - they give us a daily reminder of what is important and why we are here.  Their joy, innocence, and energy bring such hope that they will create a better world; it is truly an amazing experience to witness. 

Certainly, as I gather with my family to celebrate Thanksgiving, the SES family will be near in my thoughts and prayers.  Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings to the SES community.

Your very grateful principal,

Ms. Booth
