WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER

Message from Mr. Alarcon

We are now in the final month of the 2020-21 school year! This month we celebrate our wonderful teacher's at St. Anthony of Padua. Each individual has gone above and beyond to bring the best possible situation to our school. I cannot express enough of how proud I am of our staff, parents and children.

We have a lot going on this month. Everything from testing to field day! As we are putting a lid on this year, I want to thank all of you for your patience, resilience and kindness. We have grown as a school because of each one of you. God Bless You and your family.

Teacher Spotlight - Susan Delgado

When I first met Mrs. Delgado, it was intimidating. She was not disrespectful, but expressed herself with great confidence. I admired how she spoke about her peers and students. I knew right away that she was a leader and great educator.

Over the years, many of you have been touched in one way or another by Mrs. Delgado. She may have taught or is teaching your child. You may have also had her as a teacher yourself. You may have seen her in the hallways talking to the children or outside taking her kids to play. Mrs. Delgado has represented our school with great class and honor over her career.

That is why it is so difficult, but also at the same time happy, to announce Mrs. Delgado will be retiring at the end of this school year.

All of us have been honored that she decided to leave her mark at our school over the years. While she will be missed, she will still come back to visit. Thank you Mrs. Delgado for all that you have done and are doing for our students, parents, peers and school. God Bless.

Teacher Spotlight - Patti Mott

If you do not know who Mrs. Mott is, I can describe her in a couple of words....teacher, kind. It is with great honor that I can congratulate her on retirement. At. St. Anthony's, Mrs. Mott's job is to work with students that need a little extra assistance. Over the years, she has provided a fantastic service for our students and teachers. Mrs. Mott is a team player that has impacted countless lives. She uses her calm demeanor to assist in bringing our children to grade level. Without Patti, St. Anthony's would not be as successful as it is.

We all want to thank Mrs. Mott for her wisdom and patience. She has taught her peers many things, including how to act like a teacher. Patti is the consummate professional. We all love her and even though she is retiring, what we learned will be forever etched in our minds and hearts. Thank you Mrs. Mott for everything you have done for our students and teachers. God Bless.
