Hope

“Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.” – Christopher Reeve

This is one of my favorite quotes about Hope, which is our theme for this year. If anyone ever had just cause to live without hope, surely it was Christopher Reeve. But, even with everything he had to face, he still never gave up hope.

In our conversation about this quote, here’s what Matthew had to say:

Hope is your left hand and God is your right hand. God is always going to be there to help you, but hope is what drives you. If you are in a bad time, hope can get you out. If you have no hope, you’re going to stay in the same situation. God is your gear shift, but hope is the accelerator and pedal. Hope is what gets you somewhere.

Such amazingly wise words! Thank you, Matthew!

Welcome to Seventh Grade!

Welcome back to school! I know you must all be so excited to be back for another school year. So we’ll get started working hard right away! But first, here’s a little information about your first week as seventh graders:

  • Monday and Tuesday are both minimum days.
  • Wednesday will be our first full day of school.
  • Friday is a Dress Uniform Day; our Welcome Back Mass will be at 11:00.

And for your parents:

  • Thursday is Back to School Night, 7:00.

I’m looking forward to getting to know each of my new seventh graders. We are going to have a wonderful year!
