Maureen Siecicki, St. Mary's School Parent & Grandparent - written in 2014
How could I forget the summer of 1988 as Paul and I, with our three teenagers, left Chicago for a new life in Omaha! God had answered our prayers for a new job opportunity for Paul. Now we prayed that our children would find their way in their new schools.
Alan was quickly enrolled as an 8th grader at St. Mary's in Bellevue and joined the cross country team. It did not take long for me to see that he felt he was part of his class. He was warmly welcomed by Miss Moore and her students, giving Alan a positive 8th grade experience at St Mary's. He even received a Special Student Award at the end of the year and a Knights of Columbus scholarship as he continued on to Gross High. I credit St. Mary's welcoming spirit and attention to the individual student for Alan's self confidence.
Alan and Melissa's children now attend St. Mary's. I already see our grandsons receiving individual attention in math and reading giving them room to grow and flourish. It is so gratifying to see the many opportunities St. Mary's provides for the students to share their talents and Christian values with others.
