St. Edmunds Newsletter – May 2020

During the month of May, we reflect on Our Blessed Mother’s example of faith, courage, perseverance and fortitude.  May God bless all mothers and give us the love and wisdom to raise and guide our families as our Blessed Mother modelled for us.  We will continue to ask her to intercede for us and may we continue to rely on her example of patience, courage, and compassion, especially during these uncertain times. We would also like to take this opportunity to wish all mothers a wonderful Mother’s Day on May 12th.

As we approach the final two months of the school year (with 6 weeks of remote learning under our belts), we would like to congratulate all our students and families who have walked with, and supported our teachers during this new educational journey.  I am extremely proud of the efforts of our teachers to schedule, plan, instruct, meet, and provide feedback and support to the children’s programs.  I am also proud of the efforts of our students to connect with their teachers and each other, as well as the continued partnership with our parents.  I am so grateful for this incredible St. Edmund’s community working together for each other.
