Celebrating Mrs. Meredith: A Day of Giving
Our wonderful principal, Mrs. Jeanne Meredith is retiring after 16 years!
We kicked off our Mrs. Meredith Day of Celebration with a Parent Breakfast.
Here, our parents were given the opportunity to thank Jeanne for all she has done for their students and families.
"...Over the years, Ms. Meredith has demonstrated integrity and earned the respect of those she touched and the relationships made. She was always approachable and her caring and spiritual demeanor were important to me, especially as a Father. My most memorable take-away is always seeing the Principal standing on the street corner welcoming the students in their morning arrival to school. It is one more salient moment that reassured me that my daughter is in the right school..."
For some of our families, she has been there through the worst of times and helped them back onto their feet - "Mrs. Meredith was the first person I spoke to on the day our house burned down. I’ll never forget her calming voice telling me that the St. Mary community was praying for us and the boys were welcome back anytime and in any clothes they had...I’m forever grateful."
Our Day of Celebration for Mrs. Meredith continues into the classroom! This morning, Mrs. Meredith went on a farewell tour of the school, stopping in each classroom for surprises and hugs galore.
"Mrs. Meredith has always pushed us to do our very best and sees the good in each of her students. She has never stopped believing in us."
Her love for her students is evident in the guidance and love she gives them every day. Thank you, Mrs. Meredith!
Our day of celebration ended with a tribute to our beloved principal, Mrs. Jeanne Meredith. We invited her closest friends and family, and gathered with the rest of the school to honor her one last time.
At our celebration, our St. Mary representatives shared thoughtful words and heartfelt moments with the crowd. Our students, along with Mrs. Bridy, presented Mrs. Meredith with beautiful art projects that will be cherished forever!
Mrs. Meredith's love for St. Mary Interparochial School is matched by all she has achieved over her years as principal. She is a visionary leader and an integral part of our family - the St. Mary Family.
Mrs. Meredith is not only "Principal of the Decade", but will forever be at the heart of all St. Mary Interparochial School has become.
We congratulate Mrs. Meredith on her great achievement and, although we will miss her dearly, we are thankful for all the accomplishments, guidance, spirituality, and love she has brought to St. Mary Interparochial School.
Congratulations and thank you, Mrs. Meredith!
