Happy Summer!

For my final Principal’s Message of the year, I wanted to express my heartfelt thanks for another fantastic year at St. Paul School.  As I shared at the Parent Appreciation Breakfast, we hit the ground running in early April once restrictions were lifted and things returned to “normal”.  The last three months were a blur […]
