As Catholic Schools Week begins, Our Lady of Trust Catholic Academy would like to recall its amazing past and allow its families to share their positive experiences. The following letter comes from a parent who truly appreciates the academy’s approach to families:
“My sincere thanks to the staff of Our Lady of Trust. Thank you for always answering my questions and making Nicholas feel at home. We have been at this school for many years now, first Jesus for grades 1-8, and now Nicky is following in those footsteps – thank you for your hard work and dedication to Nicholas and all the children of the school.”
Here is the wonderful speech from last year’s salutatorian, who received a generous scholarship to Xaverian High School:
“They are loving and compassionate teachers who only want the best for their students. Without my teachers and parents I would not be the young man I am today. They shaped me through discipline, encouragement and lessons. I cannot thank them enough for all the work they’ve put into me. They would not let me merely pass any class. They would make sure I succeeded in every subject I worked in. My teachers never slacked off and always did their best for us.
“We have come together and made a class that will not be forgotten. One word can describe this class: energetic. You can ask our teachers! From our dancing at prom to our creaming on the zip lines at camp Getaway, this class has always shown its brightest colors. Through my time with my classmates and teachers, I’ve learned that I have a much larger family than I once thought.
“The time for us to move on has finally come; I know that my entire class will go on to do great things. I’m definitely going to be missing you guys. One last piece of advice I can give you guys is to have faith in your dreams. Goodbye and good luck.”
