“Remember the past with gratitude, live the present with enthusiasm, and look forward to the future with confidence.” - St. John Paul II
Dear Star Parents and Families,
Today, as we come to the close of the 2019-2020 school year, the words of St. John Paul II above seem very appropriate. The Teachers and Staff of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic School would like to extend our deepest thanks for all you have done to make this most unusual year a success. The 3rd Trimester was not what we had hoped for when we began in September; however, we worked together and made it through.
Yesterday, the Superintendent of Public Instruction announced that we will be returning to our buildings in the Fall. This has been our hope since the Stay-at-Home-Stay-Safe directives began. OLSOS will be working with the Archdiocese and planning for the first day of school, September 1. I will be monitoring the situation throughout the summer and will send you information when finalized.
Congratulations to our graduating class and their families! The Mass and ceremony were wonderful! Thank you Father and Sr. Maria Caeli for all of your hard work and dedication to our students and school!
The Accelerated Reader (AR) Program will be available during the summer. If your child is interested in participating, he/she should use the same log-in information. Please contact Mrs. Kennedy (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions. The i-Ready Program will also be available through the summer. Additionally, Sister Daniela will be offering a book club for the new and current Fifth Grade girls (here’s the link).
Again thank you all for your help, patience, and understanding as we navigated our way through a very unusual year. God bless and have a restful summer!
Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic School
