       It is with great joy I write my first Friday weekly update as the Interim Principal of the Annunciation School. As many of you already know, Annunciation has held a very special place in my heart from the moment I joined this community. I am honored to have the opportunity to further serve our school for the remainder of this year. I am very grateful to Fr. Grippo for entrusting this important role to me and for the valuable support he has offered during this time of transition.            

     I am confident that with your support and partnership, the rest of the school year will be a successful one filled with learning opportunities that promote growth for our students. I will continue to collaborate with our teachers to shape our vision of academic success and tailor instruction to meet the needs of our diverse learning population.  Most importantly, we will work together to carry out our mission of educating our students in the Catholic faith. I am extremely blessed to be working with our faculty and staff whom are pillars of strength, hope, and love for our children.            

     I wish you all a wonderful weekend and as we approach St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th I’d like to share an Irish Blessing; “May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, and may the sun shine warm upon your face.”
