Thoughts from the Principal…

I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to many of you as you waited to talk to your child’s teacher last week, or when a few of you stopped in my office.  Being a school principal is not easy, but I enjoy what I do, especially at St. Paul.  One of the reasons I enjoy it is the parents of our students.  I am impressed time and time again with the amount of support that my teachers and I receive from parents.  That support comes in many forms, not the least of which is a smile and a thank you.  Those things mean so much.                                                                                                       

  I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank our PTL.  It is not easy at all to be on the PTL board.  All of our PTL board members work full-time jobs and yet find the time to organize and execute the fundraisers that are vital for our school.  To be honest, sometimes I am not the easiest person to work with, and yet they persevere and make a huge difference for our school .  Thank you Brandi Johnson, Jen Heal, Joy Alsop, Tina Chapman, and Katie O’Rorke.  We appreciate you!                                      

Finally I want to thank Pastor Hoffmann for everything he did for me while I was missing school during my illness.  In addition to spiritual support, he taught my religion classes for me.  It was a huge relief to know that my religion students were in good hands.                    

As I observe the world in which we live, Christian education is needed now more than ever.  May God continue to bless St. Paul Lutheran School.

Blessings to all,

Steve Hall; Principal
