“You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you as you are to them.”

Dear St. Stan’s Families:


We certainly do not get a choice of families and I think that God has guided each of us to this special place to form this very special St. Stan’s family. I feel very lucky to be part of this family each and every day. It is a family filled with love, respect and generosity. The generous nature of our students and their own families is amazing. During this holiday season our students are busy thinking of others. Just a couple of reminders, unwrapped toys for Helping Hands are due to us December 14th as is the $5.00 donation for Children’s Hospital. Finally, our MCA mite boxes are due December 17th.


Besides these activities are students are busy at work making placemats for individuals who use Meals on Wheels, Christmas cards for retired Felician nuns and Christmas cards for children who will spend Christmas in the hospital. This is a family to be quite proud to be a part of!


Tomorrow, is our Polar Express experience at 7:00pm in our gym, please join us there is still room for this magical experience. Next Thursday, December 13th we will be decorating our Jesse Tree and on December 18th at 7pm we will be hosting our annual Christmas show. As a note, doors do not open until 6:45pm for the show. We ask students leave their coats with parents and join their classes on the bleachers. At the conclusion of the show parents must come to the bleachers to get their children. I will be sending out more information next week in reference to the show and our last day of school before Christmas break.


In His Peace,


Elena Malinconico
