Message to Parents
Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:
Welcome to an exciting school year. As your new Principal, I want to be the first to thank you for putting your faith and trust in us to provide the best academic, social, and spiritual learning experience possible. We will not disappoint you as we move this good school to become a great high school serving the unique needs of every individual. You will notice that there are several changes that have taken place on campus to better provide a quality education. We will review these changes during orientation. It is important to remember that we are partners in education and that we all are responsible to one another to be true to our mission statement.
"We are committed to fostering self-esteem, preparing students for college,
challenging them to live and proclaim the Gospel message, achieve academic
success and secure the skills necessary for life lived according to God's plan."
Greatness is not an end point but an evolving process whereby we continue to grow. "The moment we think of ourselves as great, our slide toward mediocrity has begun." Let us not slide to mediocrity but continue to grow in greatness.
I am honored to serve as your President/Principal. In the few short weeks that I have been on campus, I have witnessed the tremendous spirit that makes St. Elizabeth such a wonderful environment for learning. I have seen the dedicated young men of our football team training hard during the heat of the day to represent us with pride on the field. I have been in the gym as the volleyball and basketball teams have given freely of their time to show what it means to be a Mustang. I am proud to be associated with the dedicated coaching staff that continues to serve our students so well.
As I have walked around campus, I have been greeted with friendly "hellos" from many students, faculty, and staff. I have spoken with several parents who continue to show their love for their children by working countless hours to meet tuition commitments. I have seen the tireless work of those staff members on campus during the summer months to ensure a smooth opening of school in August. These unsung heroes sometimes go unnoticed. I want to thank them in advance for all that they are doing for our community.
Let us begin this new phase in our growth as we approach our hundred-year anniversary of serving the Fruitvale neighborhood by recommitting to excellence in everything we attempt. Let us not ever give up on our dreams and remember that it is a "Wonderful World" that we live in.
Mr. Martin Procaccio
