Our character trait word for the next two weeks is GRATITUDE. Gratitude can be defined as a feeling or expression of being thankful. It is a positive emotion that helps us appreciate those moments or people in our lives both past and present. As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, we are reminded to be thankful for all those blessings that have been bestowed upon us.

A Message from the Principal

Thanksgiving season is upon us and we are grateful for all who have helped and continue to help make Saint Leo the Great School an outstanding place that provides a unique and exceptional learning experience for our students. We are especially blessed to be able to continue many traditions from over the past 50 years.

On November 8th, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recognized the 2018 National Blue Ribbon Schools at a ceremony in Washington, D.C.  At that time, Saint Leo the Great School received a plaque and flag to signify our status as a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School of Academic Excellence.

On Wednesday, November 14th, the school community will celebrate a Mass in honor of our Patron, Saint Leo the Great, whose Feast Day is Saturday, November 10th. Immediately following the Mass, we will mark our wonderful achievement with the official raising of the Blue Ribbon Flag, and then further celebrate as a “Blue Ribbon” family with our traditional Turkey Feast.

Please note that the cafeteria is closed on Tuesday, November 13th to prepare for Wednesday’s feast. Snack and lunch must be brought from home. For those parents who did not order the turkey meal in advance, lunch must be brought on Wednesday as well.

On Thursday, November 15th, “Blue Ribbon Bagels” will be available for purchase in the cafeteria.  The half day schedule provides the perfect opportunity for this special lunch/snack.

To round out the week’s activities, Friday November 16th is Blue Ribbon Shirt Day! Students will be invited to wear their Blue Ribbon Shirts for a celebratory group school picture and then, in the afternoon, cheer on the 8th graders for the annual 8th grade Football Game.

I hope you all enjoy the blessings of our Patron Saint, Saint Leo the Great. Happy Saint Leo the Great Day!
