Happy Tuesday! Today is the feast of St. Francis De Sales. He is the patron saint of teachers, educators, the deaf, the Catholic Press, confessors, and authors. As parents, and the the primary educators of your children, this is your feast day. 

St. Francis was known for his zeal of the faith and teaching the true Faith during the Protestant revolt against the Catholic Church. We are called to teach the true Faith to our children. We must show them how to sift through the worldly ideas and find those in alignment with our beliefs. Let us live our faith with zeal!

I hope you were all able to see ‘You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown’ last week. I am so proud of the students! Everyone did an amazing job. It was great to see so many of our students participate. 

A big THANK YOU to Mrs. G for all her hard work preparing the students. Thank you to Mr. Cromwell for providing the music. We are very lucky to have an amazing drama program at SSA.
