Dear Genesee County Catholic Schools,
May the blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ be always with you! It is with deep honor and privilege that I am serving you as the Executive Director of Genesee County Catholic Schools (GCCS).
As a product of GCCS, I value the strong faith formation in our schools. My personal experience with this dynamic educational component has impacted my life in the most significant way - my relationship with God. That spiritual journey began at home each day, but was further strengthened while at school. I pray you will find this to be the case for your children as well. I firmly believe in the importance, mission, and philosophy of Catholic Education. More importantly, I am blessed to return to where my lifelong passion for serving all of God’s children and their families initially began.
My role is to serve you, your children, the school staff, the pastors, and our Catholic community as a whole. I intend to be visible in all schools, classrooms, school masses, and parent meetings throughout the year. It is my goal to host Parent Workshops to provide information on curriculum, learning opportunities, and other topics important to you. Please contact me if you have suggestions on workshops you would be interested in attending.
You, of course, are the single most important teacher in your child’s life. It is through the collaboration of the Pastors, Principals, teachers, and parents, in which our schools become stronger academically and in the formation of faith. In doing so, we also envision every child succeeding at the highest level.
I look forward to meeting each of you in person and am excited to share this journey with all of you. May the 2017-18 school year be one of enrichment through learning, friendship, prayer, and peace.
As we begin this new year with hope and enthusiasm, I ask that you join me in praying daily for our Genesee County Catholic Schools. May God bless us with his love, grace, and guidance as we help our children become disciples of Christ.

Special note to our Catholic families
We continue to respond and pray not only for the needs of our students impacted by the Flint Water Crisis, but also for our many non-Catholic families in the City of Flint. We are asked nearly every day how to help. We hope the following resources will be useful to all as we meet the mission of our faith in this community.
Fight Lead with Nutrition
Nutrition is one of the first lines of defense against the harmful effects of lead. People who eat a healthy diet are less effected by lead in the body than someone with poor diet habits. Foods high in iron, calcium, and vitamin C protect the body from lead. The body absorbs lead easier on an empty stomach, so make sure not to skip meals!
