From the Principal's Desk (05/20/22)

In his homily this week, Fr. Bob spoke to us about how God’s love for us is limitless, and that all we need to do is talk to Him when we are afraid, or worried, or need guidance. Much like we go to our parents, siblings, or friends when we need help, love, and
encouragement, God is ALWAYS present and ready to listen to us; we need only to start the conversation with Him.
Last week, students in grades 1-8 shared their inventions at our First Annual Invention Convention. There were so many wonderful ideas, and the social hall was filled with excitement and joy, as students took turns sharing their projects with the different grade levels.
This week, we had Field Day on Wednesday, hosted by Coach Jourdain and our middle school students. All the students had great fun just enjoying the outdoors and each other’s company. It was great to see the older students helping and playing with the younger students.
Yesterday, our eighth graders participated in Student Government Day. They took over the roles of the teachers in most of the classrooms. It gave our soon to be graduates an opportunity to see what the classroom looks like from the other side, and to demonstrate the virtues they have developed at Epiphany over the years, working with the younger children.
Our middle school service club, ASTRA, had a chance to visit First Federal Bank to learn more about the finance industry. They finished up their field trip with some fellowship and food as they dined at the Chinese buffet at the Lake City Mall. They have done so much this year helping our community near and far with their support of Catholic Charities, providing shelter kits for foster care children, participating and supporting the Kids Heart Challenge, and helping around our campus.
With just a couple of weeks left of this school year, students are wrapping up their final unit studies and exams before leaving for summer break. Our current eighth graders will soon be graduating on June 2nd and will be added to our long list of Epiphany Alumni, spanning over 62 years.
Please encourage your student to finish strong, enjoy his/her final days with classmates, and take note of the memorable moments this year. We have so much to be thankful for and we appreciate your support and prayers throughout this year.
Yours In Christ,
Rita M. Klenk
