Mrs. Linda Kennedy ! Thank you for you love of God, carrying on your strong faith to my children. Thank you for your support and patient with children. You are a true role model to our children who are our future. If you are looking for a catholic school for your children, try STM. They have a team of teachers that are true leaders that put the children first .
