Dear Parents and Guardians:

Over the last few weeks, I have enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on this year at St. Veronica School.  Each day brings new opportunities and challenges for our Vikings. There are so many blessings in our Viking Community; each one comes with a celebration of our Catholic faith!  

These sentiments are echoed as new families visit my office for the first time. I often ask them, “What brought you to St. Veronica?”  While their responses vary, they often involve experiences with one of our families and the positive experiences you have had at St. Veronica. Word of mouth is our best seller!  But the experience for these new families does not stop there. By simply walking through the halls, each prospective family is greeted by students who smile and share their joy.  They offer our typical high five as they walk by. Our visitors also comment on the classroom dynamics, student behavior, and overall great work being done throughout the building. Our students not only represent themselves, but our school and your families in classic fashion.

There are so many reasons to be proud of our St. Veronica School. The list could go on and on. But it’s safe to say I count my blessings each day!

God bless,
