Mary Smith

Mary Smith

It is with great sadness that I would like to inform our school and church community that Mary Smith has decided to retire from St. Anthony Catholic School effective at the end of this school year.  Mrs. Smith’s impact on St. Anthony Catholic School and Parish is something that words can not truly express.   She has been a faithful teacher, friend and leader of our school, and has such  a passion for Catholic education. Thank you Mary for all you have done for our children as well as our parish, you will truly be missed.

We wish her luck in all of her future endeavors, and we will keep her and her family in our prayers.

2018-19 First Grade Teacher Position Filled

Dear St. Anthony Community,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the hiring of Mrs. Natalie Knight as the 1st grade teacher for the 2018-2019 school year.  We were blessed to have a wonderful pool of candidates, but Mrs. Knight proved herself to be the right person for the position.   Mrs. Knight is coming to us from Greenwood Elementary, and here is a copy of her introduction from their school website:

” After 20 plus years working as a psychologist, I decided to pursue a different career in teaching. I have a wonderful family who have supported me in this venture and I have really enjoyed teaching here at Greenwood over the past nine years. My family is very near to my heart; I cherish each and every one of them. I have a wonderfully supportive husband and two daughters. My oldest daughter was involved in a four-wheeling accident in the summer of 2003, and she was in a coma for nine days. We weren’t even sure she would survive. Following her release from the hospital, I quit my job as the psychologist for Disabilities and Special Needs and focused on her rehabilitation full time. This has taught me to be thankful for every day that you have on earth and that you need to spend as much time as you can with family and cherish every moment of it. Luckily my oldest daughter has recovered better than expected and I began substituting at the local elementary school approximately two years after her accident. I discovered I truly loved it and began the process of renewing my teaching certificate and adding on Elementary Education. I originally graduated from Winthrop College with a double major in Psychology and Secondary Education. I continued at Winthrop for my graduate work and received my MS in School Psychology. For the past eight years I have been teaching 5th grade and really enjoy it”

We would like to welcome Mrs. Knight and her family to the St. Anthony Catholic School community and provide her with our heartfelt support and prayers.

ST. ANTHONY BOOK CLUB

thQUE7KNYN
The next book selection for our Book Club will be

Saint Catherine Laboure 

Meetings are every Tuesday at 9 am in classroom A  family center please call Patti Musto for more information 843-665-0169. We
look forward to beginning this book in mid-May.

A look into this book

Catherine Laboure is the epitome of a person who experienced extraordinary heavenly favors but exhibited such humility that she never allowed herself to be identified as the visionary . She was given the message that the Immaculate Conception has the power to shower God grace to the our aching sorrowful world. She will protect us and guide us to her Son if we ask her. Catherine Laboure faithfully carried out her mission never directing any attention to herself then went back to her life of service to others. The reader journeys with the young Catherine through the death of her mother and the young saint assuming full adult responsibility at age 12 for the household management of a farm. She faithfully assists her brothers business by taking on lowly tasks and finally in the convent she cares for the old men in the hospice. Catherine performed her duties of cooking, cleaning and caring for other with love and attention so as to make an offering to God ;small tasks done with great love. It is within our ability to strive to do the same.

Please call Patti Musto for more information 843-665-0169.
