Blue Ribbon Reflections by Mrs. Weiss
It was with surpassing joy and enthusiasm that I, along with administrators and representatives from schools across the nation, gathered to be recognized by the national academic community for realizing in our schools the very purpose for which we exist. The experience filled me with a sense of overwhelming gratitude for the dedicated efforts of so many in our community who contribute so much to our school. It filled me with a sense of tremendous accomplishment that the national academic community would recognize our efforts on behalf of our students and identify them as deserving of such national recognition. It filled me with a sense of pride in the work of our students for whom our school exists. And lastly, it filled me with a sense of awe in the God who makes everything we do possible. It was one of the truly great moments of my life, a moment of great excitement, accomplishment, and emotion, to represent the St. Louis School community and to accept on behalf of the entire community the title of Blue Ribbon School of Excellence bestowed upon us in recognition of what we do each day in these classrooms and hallways and of who we are as a community of faith, knowledge, and service.
