From the Principal's Desk
As we prepare to celebrate Memorial Day over this long weekend, I thought I might take a look back to see the origins of the holiday. I learned that while this day, formerly known as Decoration Day, originated in the 1890's, it was not a federal declared holiday in the USA until around 1971. Over time, this day officially became Memorial Day. It is a day to give thanks to those who have served and presently serve our country, to protect the rights we now live and are governed by.
It is also fitting at this time, to once again acknowledge and give THANKS for the tireless hours spent in the past two months from not only our medical professionals, first responders, retail and other essential workers, but YOU, our parents and families, who have been working with the teachers and myself to keep the day to day learning experiences going from home. The many, many hours spent behind the scenes planning, teaching, facilitating, organizing, reinforcing, and at times "patrolling" the efforts of our young people, by the teachers and the parents and their "childcare" teams (grandparents, friends, older siblings) have not been overlooked.
On June 1st and 2nd, we will collect all of the student texts and library books, as well as hold drive up awards ceremonies to wrap up the 2019-2020 school year. While a few short months ago our sights were set on wrapping up Epiphany Catholic School's 60th Anniversary with a Cocktail Social and Alumni event, which ultimately had to be cancelled due to the pandemic, we definitely can say that this 60th year will go down in history and not ever forgotten! Please refer to the link in this update or the paper copy of the schedule for June 1st/2nd.
I wish you a very happy and relaxed long weekend. For all of you who may be working this weekend to keep services available to all of us, I pray that you will have an opportunity for some much deserved rest in the near future.
Yours In Christ,
Rita M. Klenk
EASY DUMP-IT DINNERS
Yes, one dish dinners are easy, but there’s something even easier —
the dump-it dinner.
It’s truly as simple as it sounds. Just put all the ingredients in at the same time, and watch (or walk away!) as your dinner practically makes itself. (And cleanup? What cleanup?)
