A Note of Thanksgiving

SPA Family and Friends-


Thanksgiving is almost near and I am so grateful because it forces me into slowing down and truly reflecting on the precious blessings that God has given me. As I reflect on the many things for which I am thankful, I want to take this opportunity to share just a few of them with you.


I am thankful for our students who come to school everyday to learn and model the way of our faith. I am thankful for the partnership with our parents who have created such great young people, entrusted us to serve their precious children, and supported us in a multitude of ways. I am thankful for my staff who goes above and beyond the call of duty to really care about each student as an individual. I am also thankful for Father Peter who is committed to our school and our students. Lastly, I am thankful for this amazing community- parents, volunteers, extended families, alumni, etc. who all enthusiastically contribute so much to our school.


While I have only been here for a short time- the blessings that SPA has brought to my life are immeasurable. You have all made an impact on my life I just want to say THANK YOU for being a part of SPA!


Have a blessed weekend and Thanksgiving!

Mrs. Morrow
