Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome back! Or to our new families, welcome to Star! I can’t help but be excited about the beginning of a new school year. As much as I love working here, it isn’t about “here”, it’s about “who”. Star of the Sea School is in a great old building but that building is not the school. We are the school! Students, parents, teachers, priests, administrators, and alumni make Star.
I want to extend a special welcome to our new Kindergartners and new students in other grades. That same warm greeting is extended to our new staff members; Ms. Coldren (K Aide), Ms. Gerlach (3rd Grade Teacher), Mr. Kaiser (Junior High Science Teacher, and Mr. Cohen (Counselor).
Finally, I wish to welcome our new Parochial Vicar, Father Patrick Driscoll and our new Pastor, Father Joseph Illo. Both have been on campus for about a month and you will get a chance to meet them in the schoolyard or at Back To School Night, or at Mass here at Star.
