Principal's Greeting
Greeting St. Marguerite Families

Happy Summertime!  It’s hard to believe that the 2018-2019 school year has come to a close!  I feel so blessed to have become part of the St. Marguerite Bourgeoys school community this year.  Our new staff was made to feel so welcome, and students and returning staff were so helpful.  Thank you all for making this such a vibrant and engaging school community!

 First, I’d like to thank our St. Marguerite Catholic School Community Council (CSCC) for their many efforts to build community and support teachers and students this past year.  They have hosted fundraisers, dances, meals and craft sales throughout the year.  Additionally, they have supported families with some school supplies and teachers with classroom materials and projects.  They have also reached out to partner with local community school to provide muffins and snacks for their nutrition program.  The impact our CSCC has on our school is significant, and we could not be as successful as we are without them.

 Second, I’d like to extend a thank you to our staff this year, for their commitment to providing a quality education to their students, but also for volunteering their time to provide students with extra-curricular activities.  Our teachers and staff love to get to know and relate to students outside of the classrooms, so its win, win!  Their passion for teaching and their love of children truly shines bright in this school.  I would also like to wish our departing staff many blessings as they embark on new adventures!  Ms. Herauf, Mrs. Weber, Mrs. Belair, and Mrs. Tremblay – your light has shone brightly at St. Marguerite!  Thank you for sharing it with us.  We will miss you.

 Third, parents and guardians . . . we could not do this without you!  Thank you for keeping us well informed about your children, and for the education and support you provide them with at home.  All of those minutes you spend reading with your children, helping with math questions, learning sight words, assisting with a project, and checking in on homework, directly support their success at school. 

 Finally, I’ve been so impressed with our students this year!  They have worked so hard to learn and be successful this past year.  They have grown socially and emotionally, and have shown responsibility, discipline and compassion for others.  They have shown that they can work through mistakes, problem solve, ask for forgiveness and forgive others.  I have been a witness to many positive actions and words among students around St. Marguerite.  Thank you students, for letting your light shine!

We will see you on August 29th for the Backpack drop, and then on September 3rd for the first day of the 2019-2020 school year!  God Bless you all, and may this summer bring you sunshine, joy, rest, and contentment.​
