Happy Thanksgiving!

As a Catholic school principal and as principal of Immaculate Conception School in particular, I am thankful for many things.

First, I am thankful for the opportunity to serve in a role that helps bring children closer to God. The knowledge that each day begins with prayer, that we are able to refer to Scripture on a daily basis, and that we celebrate the Sacrament of the Eucharist on a weekly basis is a gift I wish more people could experience. For this, I am thankful.

Secondly, I am thankful for the presence of our community. Time and time again, I receive compliments on the strength and closeness of our community. We have a dedicated HSA and School Advisory Council who work diligently to ensure our school remains community-based. We have a number of parents who give of their time and talent all for the enhancement of our school and for our children. For this, I am thankful.

Next, I am thankful for my teachers and support staff members who continue to be like Christ for their students on a daily basis. It is an amazing feeling to see so many individuals going above and beyond in helping our students form not only intellectually, but spiritually, socially, and emotionally. For this, I am thankful.

Finally, I am thankful for the gift of our students. To hear their stories, to see their learning, to witness their evangelization to the adults in their lives is a powerful image. Their smiles, innocence, and unconditional love reinforce that peace and happiness can exist in a world of chaos and turmoil. For this, I am thankful.

Please be assured that you and your family remain in my thoughts and prayers as I gather around my table and offer my prayer of thanksgiving.

Sincerely in Christ,

Kelly Seccamanie
