Dr Tony Rieglings Letter 5/11/17

Greetings!

Here we are in the last few weeks of school. With our year rapidly coming to its conclusion, there are so many things going on. Please check the calendars often as we move through our last days. We want to make sure you get to attend all of those special events for your children.

We are so proud of our eighth graders as they were confirmed this week. They have completed their training so nicely and demonstrated the commitment appropriate for those receiving the sacrament. Bishop Foys passed along his congratulations for a job well done. Many thanks to everyone who helped our eighth graders be ready.

I hope to see you at Walk-a-thon tomorrow. As our largest fund raiser (and even a fun raiser), it is always a great day. The weather is looking good as I write, so we expect a good day—even if we may need some adjustments for wet fields. Our PTO has had an army of volunteers working on the activities and planning. Please join us for what always proves a great day.

Congratulations yet again to McKenzie C for another championship on her path to the national gymnastics meet. McKenzie captured first place in the double-mini at the Region 4 championships. She also had a respectable place in tumbling and trampoline. We wish her good luck as she goes to nationals this summer. We also wish good luck to Austin B. as he goes this weekend to compete in the national archery championships. Congratulations Panthers!

At confirmation, Bishop offered a very simple message during his homily. He simply encouraged us to remember always that we are children of God and God loves us. That love is unconditional and constant. We are, therefore, at our best when we reflect that love by doing the same for others. That means sharing the Gospel message, as well as treating others as children of God.

God bless, and see you around campus,

Tony Riegling
