Welcome Letter 2019-2020
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Помаже Вам Бог! Да поможет вам Бог!
It is my hope that you all had a safe, healthy and RESTFUL summer break and are revitalized to begin another academic year. I also hope that you made many wonderful memories with family and friends.
The highlight of our summer was our OCMC mission trip to Ghana. Although I will share much more about it, one thing stood out. We celebrated Divine Liturgy at the Cathedral of the Transfiguration in Accra and on the side wall was an icon of St. Sava! And our long-time friends, the Dean of the Cathedral, Father Kwame Joseph and his wife, Gertrude Alexandra were married at the Rakovica Monastery! We are united through our Orthodox Church in so many ways around the globe! Because of this trip –with little or no internet connections- I hope I have received and answered any communications addressed to me. If not, I apologize – and try again!
We have been working through the summer on many things at St. Sava Academy: A beautiful new roof on the mobile unit! Many, many thanks to –The Radakovic family, Nebojša Babić, Nemanja Najdanović, Saša Djurić, Milomir Vasić and Javiar Mondragon! May God grant you many more blessed years! We are getting our Chromebooks and Probooks updated and ready for the implementation of MAP Growth testing. You will be getting more information on this as the year gets started.
I am happy to report that we have filled all of our open positions! We are grateful to God for our new teachers and staff who will be introduced soon –and we are equally grateful for our returning staff. We are so fortunate to have such dedicated and talented people among us!
As with any new school year, there are lots of questions, lots of excitement and lots of anxiety.
Let us all be patient with one another and know that everyone is working hard to make this a wonderful year for each and every student at St. Sava Academy.
Let us also all pray for a fruitful year of growth in “life, faith and spiritual understanding.”
May our beloved Patron, Saint Sava, intercede for us always!
