Welcome back to school everyone....
So, I am starting something new this year with the addition of my "Principal's Blog" that I will do my best to write every couple weeks. I hope that this will be a fun way to highlight some of the amazing things that are happening around campus.
This week has been an amazing, energetic and uplifting first week of school. Yes, we've had to battle a bit of adversity, but with the commitment of this community we have been able to forge ahead and in the end, become a better school because of it.
One thing I really want to share with everyone is our new school motto. As part of embarking on this new paradigm of Catholic education, we have adopted a simple saying from St. Junipero Serra. As Fr. Serra was on his journey of creating the California missions, he followed one powerful phrase… SIEMPRE ADELANTE, “Always Forward.” Through the thoughtfulness of Ms. Isabel Garcia (3rd Grade), we have now implemented this saying to keep in the forefront of our need to always move forward with love and compassion and to continue to improve and progress for the future of St. Francis of Assisi Elementary School. This motto will accompany a relic of St. Junipero Serra, a gracious gift from Fr. Ken before he departed. The relic and our school motto will be placed on the wall outside the main office.
Until next time.... Siempre Adelante.
