May the sun shine bright on your joyous days,
And the rain refresh you through peaceful nights;
May summer show you God's wondrous ways,
And prepare you for heaven's great delights.
(Irish-American Blessings and Prayers, by Andrew M. Greeley)
First of all, thank you for another wonderful year with your children. It has been a year for the
record books, to say the least. Your support, collaboration, patience, and faith make St. Matthew
School such a great place to be. We couldn’t do all we do without YOU!
We bid an especially fond farewell to our grade 8 students, who are off to St. Dominic’s to
further their education. What a joy it has been to watch you grow. May God go with you, and
keep you always.
Please be reminded to:
Take time to claim your strength; they are gifts of God.
Take time to have fun; it's God's way of teaching you your strengths.
Take time to grow yourself; only you can grow you.
Take time to trust yourself; God trusts you.
Take time to share with others; they will bless you, and you will bless them.
Take time to have hope, you are a child of God.
Have a Blessed Summer - and see you in August!
