I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for making me feel so welcome this year at St. Nicholas! I can't believe how quickly the year has gone.
We will have a very busy summer as we prepare to move to the new building and welcome you back in August. I pray that everyone has a safe and relaxing summer!
