Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and was able to relax and spend some quality time with your families. As we start a new year, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our students, families, and staff. The start of the year provides opportunities to set goals and resolutions for the coming year. I encourage our students to take this time to re-establish their academic goals and work on being the best student they can possibly be.
Thank you to our girl scout troop for decorating our Christmas tree with the beautiful ornaments for the Toys for Tots drive. Through their service project, they recognized how blessed they are and how important it is to give to those less fortunate. A special thank you to all parents for their generosity during the advent season, the detectives from the 110th precinct collected 4 boxes full of gifts for the Toys for Tots drive. Thank you for your continued support.
A New Year Prayer
Holy Father, God of our yesterdays, our today, and our tomorrows. We praise You for Your unequaled greatness. Thank You for the year behind us and for the year ahead. Help us in Your new year, Father, to fret less and laugh more. To teach our children to laugh by laughing with them. To teach others to love by loving them. Knowing, when Love came to the stable in Bethlehem, He came for us. So that Love could be with us, and we could know You. That we could share Love with others. Help us, Father, to hear Your love song in every sunrise, in the stories of our old folks, and the fantasies of our children. We pray for peace, for light, and for hope, that we might spread them to others. We accept Your gift of a new year and we rejoice in what's ahead, depending on You to help us do exactly what You want.
