Notes and Reflections from Mr. Hodge
Time to be Thankful
Each year around this time, I spend time thinking about what I am thankful for as principal at St. Patrick School. There are many things that come to mind, first and foremost being the opportunity to serve as principal in my home parish and at the school from which I graduated. But, there are several other things that always stand out as well.
I am so appreciative that our school is built on our Faith in Christ. Having the freedom to put God first in everything we do is a precious gift. We are able to pray each morning as we start the day; we give thanks at lunch time; we gather for Mass each week; and we pray before each large event, including athletic events. What a gift it is that we are able to give thanks for all of our successes and the blessings we receive.
I also enjoy the family-like atmosphere here at our parish school. I believe we are one big family, and that our school is an extension of the home. All families have issues that they struggle with. Families go through tough times where their love is tested. Fortunately, tough times don’t last but tough people do. Families forgive and forget and move on and grow from the trials and tribulations that test their love and faith. And in the end, it is always a great feeling to come home. . >>>>>
