Dear St. Walter Family,

Summer is almost here…I am actually sad to see our students leave for the summer, but I also know that everyone is ready for a little break right about now and anxious to enjoy all the fun summer has to offer.

The new computer chairs are all set-up in the computer lab. They really make a big difference in the overall appearance of the media center. For next school year, we will be purchasing the newly revised version of our Religion books – Blest Are We Faith in Action. We will be among the first schools to use this updated program from RCL Benziger. Additionally, we will be purchasing a formal manuscript/ cursive handwriting program for grades K-5 through Zaner-Bloser. This will help build stronger literacy skills and neater penmanship.

I wish to take a moment to thank our faithful traffic and lunch supervision monitors – Wendy Conroy, Alberto Mayorga, Robert Nelson, Stephen O’Connor, Joe Ruiz, and Mattie Taylor. These individuals were up at school just about every day, and without them we would have been lost.

I also wish to thank Teresa Rich, our lunch mom, who worked every day to make sure the lunches were prepared on time, and every student had something to eat.

Two of our faculty members will not be returning in the fall. Miss Provenzano, first grade, has decided to pursue an opportunity in the public school system. Mrs. Sorfleet, Pre-K, will also not be returning. We wish both of them the best of luck in all their future plans. I have begun the interview process to fill both of those positions.

Whether you are traveling over the summer months or staying close to home, I hope you find time to relax and enjoy family and friends.

Mrs. Sharon O’Toole, Principal
