Dear SJS Community,
Scripture quote for the day: "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong."- 1 Corinthians 16:13
I chose the scripture quote above because today will be a challenging day for me emotionally. My grandmother, Nora Walsh, died last week in New York. She is being buried today, and my family and I will not be able to be together to celebrate her, and honor her amazing life. She meant so much to me that when my first child was born, my daughter, I had to make sure that we honored my grandmother by giving her the middle name, Nora.
We are about to participate in a virtual prayer service before she is taken to her final resting place where only her children will be allowed to enter. I ask you all to remember my grandmother in your prayers.
On a day like this there’s nothing that would be better than to be in school with our students and be with my teammates on the faculty to get lost in our work. Please know, with all my heart, I miss our school community so very much!
James A. Hauser, Principal
