Principal Named

Please join me in welcoming our Principal for the 2018-19 year and forward. Laura Wilkowski has accepted the offer and has been named our new school principal. Laura, as you know, is not new to our school and has already made great contributions to our children’s education in the 6th grade home room and science for the whole Middle School. Before that she instituted our K-5 special science lessons.

While you know what she has already done in our community
you should also know that she has a master’s degree in Science
Education, and a Post-Master’s Degree in Administration/Supervision. She taught fourth and fifth grades in Richmond Public Schools, Virginia, and also taught preservice teachers at Virginia Commonwealth University. She coordinated and taught in an outreach program for Richmond Public Schools and the Science Museum of Virginia. Subsequently, she became the elementary science education specialist for Richmond Public Schools.

We look forward to honoring her with two meet and greet opportunities during Muffins with Mom on May 9 (7:30am) and following the 11:30am Liturgy on May 13 when Bishop Cistone presides at Mass.

Laura, Steve and her children are active in our parish and I look forward to building a bright future for the school with her leadership in our school.

Blessings and Peace,
Fr. Andy Booms
Pastor
