On behalf of the staff and students of St. Bernadette’s School, we would like to wish all our families a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving. Our community is very thankful for the tremendous warmth and involvement we see from our community. A wise person once said “It takes a village to raise a child”. Your commitment to our school and your child’s education allows the teachers to work in unison with you to deliver the best possible learning experience for your child. We are very thankful for your participation in our many events – from fundraising, to supervision, to coaching, to classroom helpers and reps, to driving, to cleaning, to maintenance…. and the list goes on! We are blessed and grateful for the community that is St. Bernadette’s.
May God Bless You!

Father in Heaven, Creator of all and source of all goodness and love, please look kindly upon us and receive our heartfelt gratitude in this time of giving thanks.
Thank you for all the graces and blessings. You have bestowed upon us, spiritual and temporal: our faith and religious heritage. Our food and shelter, our health, the loves we have for one another, our family and friends.
Dear Father, in Your infinite generosity, please grant us continued graces and blessings throughout the coming year.
This we ask in the Name of Jesus, Your Son and our Brother. Amen.
