Parent Memo, October 9, 2015

Dear Parents,

We are deeply saddened to share that Mr. Stephen Galeazzo, parent of GR 6 students, Evan and Oliver, passed away on Tuesday, October 6th. Funeral arrangements are centered around the Mass of Christian Burial 10:00 a.m. Monday, October 12th St. Gabriel Church.

As a tribute to the memory of Mr. Galeazzo and in support of Evan and Oliver, we will be taking the entire GR 6 class to the funeral mass on Monday. If you would like to have your student attend the funeral Mass with you, please write a note and sign your student out from the School Office no later than 9:30 a.m.

As has become our tradition when a funeral occurs during the school day, and weather permitting, all the remaining members of the student body and faculty and staff will honor the memory of Mr. Galeazzo with a reverent Prayer Honor Guard outside of the school. In order to participate fully in the silent honor guard that blesses the family as they enter the church parking lot, please have your students dressed for the weather.

In addition, we have had our students actively showing their support with cards, and prayers of petition. Special thank you to GR 5 student, Dan Malchesky, who took it upon himself to make and distribute green ribbons to honor the memory of Mr. Galeazzo.

In times after a personal loss in our school family, we strive to make special efforts to support and care for the students. So in the days and weeks to come we will continue to reach out in support to Evan and Oliver and the entire Galeazzo family. Please continue the prayers for the Galeazzo family during this difficult time.

God bless and keep each of you.

Mrs. Saladino
