Dear St. Paul Panther Community,
As we continue to navigate through our third school year impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is a time to reflect on the blessings of these past school years. For me, it was spending more time at home, with family. Everyone was home for dinner every night, we had opportunities to take walks at local parks and we found ourselves playing more board games and card games as a family. As a school administrator, the pandemic challenged our teachers to continue educating students in unchartered waters. We worked together to develop a plan to offer remote learning to our students.
One unanticipated blessing from the pandemic was the large amount of community support and grant money we would receive to help provide the best education possible for our students. The result of these two factors have provided for the students and staff of St. Paul School solid educational ground – Chromebooks for every student, laptops with camera access for every teacher, a network and broadband upgrade to support the increased technology, CLEAR touch interactive boards for every classroom, and a new Science series. We have made great strides on the “inside” – it is time for us to shift our focus on the “outside.”
In a devotional that I read each day, one of the reflection stated, “Father, thank You for caring about Your children enough to ensure our stability for this generation and many more to come, Amen.” (Daily Wisdom for Women 2021 Devotional Collection)
Our School is in its 97th year of educating students. Opened in 1925 as a two-room schoolhouse run by Benedictine sisters, it was born out of a need for strong faith-based education. For ninety-seven years, our staff has been committed to that mission. St. Paul was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School in 2014, is accredited with Cognia (formerly Advanced Ed) and continues to produce students ready for the next level rooted in the mission and teachings of Jesus Christ. Now, our building is in desperate need of roof repair, window replacements and an HVAC upgrade. For this year’s Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools on February 1-2, 2022, we are asking for your financial support to help us make these needed repairs and improvements. In addition to financial support, if you are skilled in any of these areas and could offer your help with these repairs and improvements, please contact me at email@example.com.
St. Paul School offers a quality education with dedicated teachers and staff members. Please help us continue this tradition in a building that gets a “refresh” so we can continue our strong faith-based education “for this generation and many more to come.” If you are able to make a donation during the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools on February 1-2, 2022 our school community would be grateful or if you would like to donate now, go to https://saintpaulflorence.weshareonline.org/ws/opportunities/SecureOurFuture! Thank you for your consideration in supporting our mission!
