A Letter From The Principal (K-8)
On behalf of Rev. Carlos Echavarria, pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish, Rev. Ricardo Borja, parochial vicar, the St. Francis & St. Rose of Lima School Board, the faculty and staff of St. Francis & St. Rose of Lima School, I welcome you back to the 2017-2018 school year.
As your principal, I want to assure you that the faculty, staff and I are all working together to provide a challenging and positive academic environment for your child. Our teachers have been preparing all summer for the upcoming school year and are very excited to teach all the students here at our school.
You should feel confident that we will be addressing all of your child’s learning needs. I look forward to getting to know your child and learn about all of his/her talents. I also want you to know that I am always available to you if there is any concern. Please feel free to call the office to schedule an appointment to meet with me at any time.
As parents, you are your child’s first and most influential teacher. Communication between home and school is critical to your child’s academic success. One of the very best things you can do to help your child succeed academically is to read to your child every day. Also, if they are ready, have your child read to you. Reading is so important to success in every subject area. Electronics are part of our lives daily. Please try to set reasonable limits for its use and be sure to monitor your children. We want them using technological tools appropriately to become a responsible 21st Century learner.
All children can and will learn to their potential here at St. Francis & St. Rose of Lima. We will be making sure of it. We care about your child's development in all areas: academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.
This will be an exceptional year! Thank you so much for choosing St. Francis & St. Rose of Lima School for your child. Let’s work together to do what is best for the school and all of the students. This is an exciting time in the history of the school. Thanks again for being part of it!
Sincerely in Christ,
Mrs. Taryn Duncan
