Principal's Message

This week, students recognized the veterans in their lives by adding his or her picture and information to our school’s Veterans Day banner. Some veterans were able to join our school assembly, where one veteran was recognized and honored with the very first “Mary Star of the Sea Elementary Patriot’s Award”. The accolade was created to thank a verteran in our community that serves beyond their time in uniform.  Petty Officer First Class, Nicholas Vilicich, served our country in the United States Navy from 1978-1985. He continues his life of service within the Mary Star community as the church sacristan. In addition to his regular duties, during the day Nick assists with setting up for activities and helps to cover yard duty on the playground. Many students enjoy hearing the stories he has to share about his military life and the history of our parish. He is a great role model to our students with his participation and leadership in the Knights of Columbus. While Nick is very busy with his job, he always makes time to help lead a rosary or step in as an altar server.  We are grateful for his example, kindness, and dedication. Please keep him and all of our veterans in your prayers this Veteran’s Day.
