What a whirlwind week! From a giraffe welcome back greeting on Monday to Friday’s letter, there’s been a lot going on around the office. Most significantly, you will see faculty/staff members coming and going in the weeks ahead so grab a score card and get your new players’ list ready.
Many of you know that Mr. Fred, custodian, has been out of school for quite a few weeks. He had a virus with cardiac complications and has not yet been cleared to return. Not to worry, he is doing well now and naturally misses us terribly! More recently, you may have heard that Mrs. Martin, our third grade assistant, was hospitalized over spring break. She had two aneurisms and subsequent surgeries. We ask for your continued prayers for her and her family as she recovers. We are working on an appropriate replacement as she will not be returning this school year.
Also not returning this school year, we wish Mrs. Hearne all the best as she begins her maternity leave. No baby yet but we’ll post photos as soon as he makes his appearance. We are happy to have Ms. Olivia Hadorn join us as the kindergarten substitute. Ms. Hadron has experience in both early childhood and kindergarten so we are a perfect fit for her! We also welcome back Mrs. Joy Cox, kindergarten assistant, who has completed her maternity leave. I’m starting to think there’s a revolving door in that wing!
As mentioned in a previous parent letter, Mr. Akers will be moving at the end of the school year. I’m happy to announce we have found a strong replacement for this critical position. Mr. Nick Sledge is graduating from the University of Louisville and currently works for RCN Technologies. He has experience with web design and is a Google certified trainer—if he can teach adults how to Google, kindergarten will be a snap! Welcome aboard, Mr. Sledge.
This week we also had confirmation that two middle school teachers will be leaving at the end of this school year. Mr. Scheps has accepted the position of Curriculum Coordinator with the Archdiocese and will now be influencing the academic journey of students in 39 elementary schools. No small feat, but he’s definitely up for the challenge! In addition, Mrs. Gilbert will be moving back to the Cincinnati area to continue her teaching career. Both of these middle school teachers have been an incredible blessing to St. Aloysius and leave large shoes to fill. We (somewhat begrudgingly) wish them both the best in their new endeavors.
Spring is a time for change, and as usual, we seem to be overachieving at St. Aloysius! Stay tuned for any further staff announcements as well as a calendar of events as we try to squeeze in everything by the last day—MAY 24!! Distance learning days are paying off and we’re able to move the last day of school up prior to the Memorial Day weekend. Not that I’m counting, or anything…
Have a great weekend,
