Teacher Weekly

St. Vincent de Paul Parish School

Greetings, staff!

As we continue into the last full month of school, it is ever more important that our relationships with one another are full of positive talk. Please make sure YOU are living our mission and motto and "Keeping Christ in our mind, body, and heart." A mentor Principal of mine once said, "I believe that students and staff members are what they see, be that positive or negative. Staff members' attitudes can make or break or a school."

You make this school and your words and actions make this school. Your behaviors, thoughts, words, and actions should further make you a disciple of Jesus. It is expected and it feels good.

Kids at heart in Catholic education,



STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK: This week is one of my favorite weeks of the school year.
