From the Principal

Nazareth School San Diego, California, USA

May 20, 2016

Dear Parents:

May continues to be a month of many celebrations and events that mark our transition to the 2016-17 school year. At Wednesday evening’s PTG meeting, it was exciting to announce that this year’s Nazareth Night raised approximately $55,000.00! What a blessing to our school and the children who will benefit from this fundraiser in our coming school year. Thank you, again, to all who donated to this event and to those whose gifts of time and talent made it so successful.

The construction of our school garden is underway! Thank you to Mr. Ladisa, Mr. Browder and the Land Family who started work on the garden boxes. As we transition from one school year to the next, we will have a beautiful garden to enjoy!

Today, we dedicated our school liturgy to the men and women of the armed forces and their families. At Nazareth School, we recognize the importance of supporting our military families in prayer and of hearing about their experiences. Our history as a nation and as a school community has been touched in many ways by those who have served and continue to do so on behalf of our freedom. To all members of the armed forces and their families, thank you and God bless you.

On Monday, we will be celebrating a special prayer service and induction ceremony for our 2016-17 Student Council Officers. Congratulations to our newly elected officers: Lola Diaz, President; Gabriel Pham, Vice President; Megan Fuson, Secretary; John McShefferty, Treasurer; Mariabella Tirado, School Spirit; Riley Hollister, Religious Affairs; Margarita Alfaro, Assistant Secretary; Rohan Murali, Assistant Treasurer; Martina Bisulca, Assistant School Spirit; and Grace McShefferty, Penny Mendoza, Carmella Parkinson and Ryan Sweeney, Members-at-Large. As we congratulate these students, we thank them for their willingness to step forward and serve our school.

On Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, our Nazareth Thespians will take the stage! If you saw the play preview last Wednesday, you know that our community can be assured of a wonderfully entertaining evening of song and drama! With The Fiddler on the Roof, Ms. Myke and the drama students take us back to a traditional musical experience that is so much a part of American theater. This is a beautiful story that will touch all who see and hear it. If you haven’t already purchased your tickets, be sure to do so before the show is sold out. Tickets are available through the school office.

Blessings to you and your children,

Dr. Colleen Mauricio
