Archives School ‘Doing Small Things With Great Love’

September 2, 2020

Principal, St. Bernard’s School

SARANAC LAKE – The staff at St. Bernard's School have been busy preparing for the school’s fall reopening.

St. Bernard’s will provide students the option of five days of in-person learning per week or full-time remote learning.

The school will also continue to offer Before and After Care to help working families.

St. Bernard’s has two new classroom teachers, Ali Miller and Karen Labonte, joining the faculty.

Recently, Miss Miller had the chance to have an outdoor Meet and Greet with her new kindergarten students and families. The school also hosted two School Walk-Throughs to give families the opportunity to see the classrooms before school starts on September 8.

St. Bernard’s School is committed to helping our students become confident, compassionate, and connected in faith. That is why, for the 2020-21 school year, the school has adopted the theme, “Do Small Things With Great Love,” a motto of St. Teresa of Kolkata.

Throughout the year, the school will honor this theme by continuing its traditional service projects, such as making cards for Meals on Wheels recipients and hosting food drives. The school will also model and encourage our students to act in ways in which they can show great love simply, such as complimenting a friend or sharing a favorite toy with a sibling. These small actions will lead to great blessings for the students and for those who receive the benefits.
