Dear St. Paul Parents,
As I walked around campus this morning and heard so much laughter and mirth and saw so many smiles and hugs, I was again reminded of the depth and breadth of relationships that define our school. These relationships have been the mortar that builds and sustains the excellent foundation that your children enjoy now and will rely on throughout their lives. All of us parents have this exceptional faculty to thank for tenderly, carefully, and intentionally placing each brick of knowledge, skill, and character in its proper place within that foundation. So, I say thank you to the 2012-13 St. Paul faculty for a job well done!
Continuing the analogy of the foundation being built brick by brick by brick, I am cognizant of the fact that our faculty could not secure each brick as firmly in the foundation as needed without our parents’ partnerships. You have been the kind of partners who enable us to help children reach their very best. So, on behalf of the entire faculty, I want to thank you for being such willing and able partners in building your child's future. Your gift to us of your children is an extraordinary blessing that we are honored and privileged to receive. Thank you.
I wish each St. Paul family a healthy, happy, and richly relational summer. I hope your travels are inspirational. I hope your summer evenings are filled with laughter, love, and fond remembrances. I pray that the Word of God permeates your homes. I hope that there is much reading that occurs for all of your family members.
As we close the 2012-13 school year, I offer this blessing to you from Paul in his second letter to the Thessalonians: "Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. The salutation of Paul with my own hand, which is a sign in every epistle; so I write. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." I am
Yours in Christ,
Kenneth C. Cheeseman
Head of School
