Welcome Back

Welcome to the Class of 2020 and welcome back to the Classes of 2017, 2018 and 2019!  We hope that this will be an absolutely wonderful year for all of you.  Seeing so many of you walking into school today with shopping bags, back packs and arms full of books and notebooks, I realized that you are all ready for a year of adventure, discovery and lots of work.  I just want to remind you to keep one of our Resurrection Pillars in mind, HARMONY! 

Your life is like a jar with lots of important people and things filling your day.  There is school work, sports, family, friends and more.  Last week several freshmen helped demonstrate how we can manage to fill our jar and still have room for other important things:  lots of school work (white stones), many friends (larger smooth stones), family (small close pins that hold life together), sports (small ball), relaxation and fun (sparling blue stones) and then what seemed like a full jar still had room for water, lots of water which blanked all the other things and people that fill our jar of life!  And that water is our time for relationship with God and prayer!  So as you begin a new year we wish you God's blessings and the gift of harmony!
