Teacher Weekly

St. Vincent de Paul Parish School

Greetings Staff!

Thank you so much for your hard work, extra time, extra materials, and extra love for your learners this week. I know how tiring and expensive this week can be for teachers! But I appreciate how special you make this week for our kiddos! Over the two week break I ask that you leave all of your school work here and spend the holiday break relaxing and being with family. I want to wish you and your families a beautiful and blessed holiday! I hope each of you return with a renewed sense of motivation and energy to take your learners to new heights next year!


Kids at heart in Catholic education,

Maria
