To: Students, Parents, Staff and Faculty
wanted to take a few minutes to wish each of you a joyous Easter. Through our Easter break, I would like all of
us to reflect on our past, our present and our future. As you know, our Lord has given each of us
the ability to be successful in life. He
has embedded in us the ability to be a success in a variety of ways. Each of us must determine what that ability /
goal is, develop a road map to reach that goal, and begin that journey by taking the first
step. The first step in this journey is
as stated by Horace Mann; “Education,
then, beyond all other devices of human origin, is the great equalizer of the
conditions of men, — the balance-wheel of the social machinery.” Horace Mann indicated that regardless of our
past, our parents, our race, our sex, if we're rich or poor, we can be whatever we
want to be through education. Therefore,
each of us must constantly strive to improve ourselves by learning all that we
can. When learning new ideas both in and
out of school becomes difficult, we greatly apply ourselves to master those new
concepts. Consequently, I want
all of us to develop a road map to our future and work towards completion of
some of the milestones that will enable us to obtain our goal. Let’s make these last six weeks of school a time
in which we can grow and learn, a time for success and a time in which we begin
down the road to our future.
God’s Blessing to all!
