Mrs. Pierce's Principal Message

Welcome back Trojans! It has been a freezing start to the new year, but one filled with warm smiles and laughter. Seeing the students engaged in their classes and working with one another warms my heart.


In this week’s gospel of John (John 1: 35-42) we are reminded that Jesus has an invitation for us all. He invites us to have a relationship with him. “Come and you will see.” Jesus loves us and wants to be a special part of each one of our lives. He knows we all have a different and deliberate journey with bumps in the road and celebrations as well. Some ways to deepen our relationship with Christ are to pray and live as a joyful disciple. Take time to listen to the plans He has for you, for His plans are true, good, and beautiful. Have a blessed week!
