September 5, 2014                                                           You are Loved. You have Value. You are Not Alone.   

From the Principal
Deacon Rick Wagner, Principal and Vice-President of Mission and Ministry



In last week's parent letter, I shared with you how we addressed the recent suicides in the area with our students. The core of the message we shared at the "family meeting" was simple: You are loved. You have value. You are not alone.  


I posted the parent letter on my daily blog as well. The response was incredible. To give you an idea, my little                                             blog generally gets 100-200 views a day. As of today,                                            the letter has gotten over 8,000 views.
