St. Patrick’s School is a fantastic place to be, and I am so very happy to be a part of it. I am always impressed by the children and their families, the dedicated faculty and staff, and our surroundings here at St. Patrick School. I am fortunate to see firsthand how much the priests, the faculty, and all of the staff care about each of these students.
I enjoy spending time with our family which includes my husband, Bob, our children, and their families. We are very fortunate to enjoy 14 amazing grandchildren. Attending their events, and riding bikes with grandchildren is a delightful way to spend my summers. I also love being at home on the farm/ranch, and helping there where and when I can. Working in the yard and garden are also hobbies I enjoy.
I have been so happy to see the students this fall. They have grown and changed so much over the summer! A new Kindergarten class, with new faces and names, is an affirmation that change, especially here, is inevitable. Children learn, grow and move on. Seeing last years’ eighth grade students do well and adjust to their new surroundings makes the fact that I miss seeing them each day a little easier as we wish them well with their futures.
