“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Dear St. Stan’s Families:
What a beautiful sentiment from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.! As a principal of a Catholic school, where we spend our days living the gospel; it is obvious that love can conquer all and that Jesus’ message of love is the path to peace and harmony in the microcosm of our school and by extension to the world we live in.
This week we have the opportunity to celebrate the blessing of Catholic schools as we launch our Catholic Schools’ Week at Sunday’s 9:00 Mass. We expect to see our students (in uniform) there to show the community the strength of our school. Enclosed in the white envelope is a description of the activities we will be hosting throughout the week as part of this celebration. Please review it and should you have any questions please contact the office. Also, if you know a family who may be interested in seeing the benefits of a Catholic education please invite them to join us at Sunday or Thursday’s open houses or to schedule a personal tour.
The week of January 29th grades five through eight will be taking mid terms. There is an error on the calendar which includes fourth grade in the mid term process. Fourth grade will only take finals. Also on Friday, January 26th our second marking period ends and report cards will be distributed on Thursday, February 1st.
I am so very excited about Catholic Schools’ Week and I hope I get the opportunity to see you at one of our events!
In His Peace,
Elena Malinconico, Principal
