Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: Congratulations to all of our seniors! What a year it has been -- it's been a whirlwind for me and surely for each of you. I will never forget your friendliness and acceptance towards me throughout my first year at St. Edward. I know that we all wish the year would have ended under different circumstances and been able to say our proper "goodbyes" to conclude the year. I remain hopeful that we'll still get the opportunity to celebrate graduation and send you off properly. I will continue to pray for God's Blessing on each of you!
