Happy First Day of School!
The O'Reilly Minute
We had a great start to the 2019 - 2020 school year! Since Saint Brigid of Kildare School opened its doors in 1996, we have celebrated the first day of the new year by welcoming our students with a bagpiper.

I would also like to welcome our newest little staff wolfhound. Last Friday, August 16th Megan and Tony Wachalec welcomed John Thomas. Please see the attached photo of Megan, our admissions director and baby John. Megan will be back after her leave and in the meantime Meredith Dorley will be covering. Meredith can be contacted by email mrs.dorley@stbrigid-school.org and also Megan’s emails are being forwarded to Meredith.  

May our students have a great year of learning and many blessings,

Kathy O'Reilly
