Dear St. Margaret’s Friends and Families,
Normally, at this time of year I find myself flooded with mixed emotions as the thought of some summer downtime is offset by the realization that our school community as we currently know it will never be the same again. It’s a time to say goodbye to the senior class and bid farewell to friends and colleagues, all the while knowing that in a few short months we will come together again, rejuvenated by time away with friends and family and ready to kick off …
