Teacher Weekly

St. Vincent de Paul Parish School

Greetings Staff!

I hope this newsletter finds you well and rested on this beautiful weekend. During this time of Thanksgiving it is ever important to me that you know how much I appreciate you and all that you do in your profession. While, at times, it is very clear that life can become overwhelming and absolutely hard- having you in the school to grow learners who are doing incredible things- is such a blessing. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to our beloved SVDP Parish School. Let's make this 4 day week- a great week!

Kids at heart in Catholic education,
