Message from Principal Spells

It’s hard to believe that I have been Principal of St. Ethelreda School for 20 years!

Thinking back on these years, one thing has never changed: the spirit of family experienced by all who enter this building. We have learned together. We have played together. We have laughed together and we have cried together. We have been here for each other. And, at the beginning and end of each day, we pray together keeping in mind that the family that prays together, stays together.

I really enjoy having our graduates return from high school and college to share their grades and goals and to give back to our school by volunteering and even teaching here. But most important of all, I am truly inspired when alumni enroll their own children at St. Ethelreda. This is the essence of St. Ethelreda School…family and tradition…a bond of trust that continues to grow.

Now I ask myself how many more years will I remain at St. Ethelreda School? My answer: I will be here as long as St. Ethelreda is standing, hopefully for the next twenty years!

Mrs. Denise Spells
Principal of St. Ethelreda School
