Lion's Letter

From the Desk of the Principal: November Newsletter

11-01-2018Mr. Christopher Zunno

Gobble! Gobble! It is that Thanksgiving season when we take time to reflect on the blessings that we have in our lives. Our family, friends, and those we encounter on a daily basis and give us an opportunity to show kindness and have that goodness in our lives. For me, I am thankful for my wife and daughter, my family in New York, my home, my friends, and, without question, my St. Christopher Family!

The first trimester has been a bit of a whirl wind. First, I would like to congratulate our Varsity soccer team for their Championship! A great job by Coach Villegas and Coach Barnaby for working with this team over the past three years and building such an amazing program. Our Superintendent, Mrs. Thompson, attended the game and was just so happy for our team and coaches. I am so proud to have our school represented so well.

I would also like to announce a change in our counseling program. In September, I applied to Title I for extra counseling days. In October, the state allowed us to increase our counseling days from one to three with the two extra days to be paid for by Title I funds! What a great blessing for our kids! However, with the increase in days, we also had to have a change in our counselor. I am happy to introduce Mrs. Sarah Pecoraro to our St. Christopher family. Sarah is an alumnus of St. Francis de Sales, Bishop Gorman and UNLV. Welcome Mrs. Pecoraro!

As I mentioned in my last letter, this is a very big year for St. Christopher Catholic School. Our accreditation visit is only four months away at this point, so time is moving quickly. We have been hard at work completing our Self-Study so it can be turned in to the chairperson of our visiting team before we leave for Christmas break. At this time, we are working on the timeline for the completion of our goals and our long range plan. What we have completed at this point has been presented to Mrs. Thompson and the School Advisory Board. I will continue to keep you informed monthly.
