From the Desk of Mrs. Wolfe
Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea Families,
Today we held our 2nd annual Faith Rally. Sr. Maria Caeli and her team did a marvelous job of organizing the event! We began with Mass, and then participated in a beautiful procession from the church to the gym, following Fr. Lappe as he carried the Blessed Sacrament over so we could all spend time in adoration. We were treated to contemplative music throughout the adoration time, and students rotated between activity time, service project time, and adoration. The morning ended with a fabulous concert, and once again the students were wowed as we listened and sang along to song after Christian song! The Lord was definitely in our midst today!
Last week I shared several staffing changes with you, and want to let you know of two others that will occur. Mrs. Tina Powell has been named our "Academic Dean of Students," and she will continue to work with students individually and in small groups, but will also be overseeing testing/screening new students for placement, consulting with teachers to create individual support plans and/or behavior plans for students, working with staff to promote best practices for instruction. Mrs. Powell will also recommend curriculum & resources for parents and teachers.
We are also saying good-bye to Mrs. Gina Cruz at the end of this school year, who has decided that after 19 years of taking care of us, it's time to retire! She has been responsible for keeping our building and everything in it in tip-top shape, and for always being willing to help out in Star Care when needed. She has always had a deep devotion to our school; we will miss her!! Thank you, Mrs. Cruz, for keeping us clean and safe these many years!
