Principal Message


Dear Wolfpack families,


          We at St.Thomas More want to extend our best wishes to everyone during this Easter Season. We are so grateful to our students, families and staff for your continued perseverance throughout these challenging times. Take time with yourselves and your family this coming Easter Weekend and April Break. It was definitely a different winter for all of us. Let’s take solace in the fact that the nicer weather is upon us. There is so much to be Thankful for.



 A Prayer in Thanksgiving at Easter

Dear God,

Thank you for giving us such good gifts. For our families who love us.

For yummy food and tasty drink. For so many different beautiful animals.

For parks with tall trees and soft grass. For birds that fly among the clouds.

For seas and streams that are fun to paddle in. And thank you for your son Jesus.

We like to read about him in the bible. He taught his disciples about you.

He healed people who were sick. He walked on water, And even died and came back to life.

Help us to remember all the things he did, And celebrate him on this special day.  Amen.

Yours in Education,

Chris Risto
