Dear School Families,
The last several weeks have been an incredible reminder of the strength in this community. We are so thankful for the kindness, compassion and generosity displayed by so many of you. Thank you to those who brought some measure of comfort to the Bucci family during this difficult time.
Thank you to those who worked so hard to prepare and support the Auction. And a huge thank you to so many of you that did both.
They say it takes a village... You are the village. Thank you and God bless you.
REQUEST FOR PRAYERS: For Bob Bucci, the husband of Jeanne Bucci, and father of Michelle (’86), Nicole (’88), Noelle (’91), Mark (’93), John (’96) and Matt (’00) who went to heaven last week. For those who are sick, homeless, hungry, without work.
