Letter from Kristen Munroe, Chair of the Board of Trustees

To the St. Thomas Community:
 
It is with great enthusiasm that I begin my tenure as the Chair of the Board of Trustees for St. Thomas Episcopal Parish School.  The St. Thomas community has been blessed with the leadership of the outgoing chair, Alex Duenas, who served this school for four years, and we all thank him for his leadership and dedication.
 
The St. Thomas Board is working to support the Head of School and the school’s five-year strategic plan. Through the Finance, Facilities, Advancement, Inclusivity, Marketing/Enrollment Management, and Trusteeship committees, the Board seeks to achieve its mission: Believing in the transformative power of an Episcopal school education, we exist to inspire and steward St. Thomas Episcopal Parish School’s future as an inclusive and thriving community.  
 
It is an exciting time to be at St. Thomas!  We are now in the second year of the five-year strategic plan, and the school continues to evolve and continuously improve.  With superb and committed teachers, faculty, staff, and administration, the leadership of this school is in the best of hands. Similarly, students reflect that spirit of camaraderie and are the product of a culture that encourages them to dream bigger, smile brighter, and learn better. Our school’s academic excellence and Episcopal values provide for our children the foundation to be compassionate, thoughtful, and productive citizens of the world.  As we say, “To know better, it takes St. Thomas.”
 
These same principles serve as the impetus for our school community to give your valued time, your expertise, and your generosity to St. Thomas.  On behalf of the Board, I want to thank you for your support, which allows St. Thomas to achieve the excellence that our children experience every day at this incredible institution.  St. Thomas is the exemplary school that it is thanks to our outstanding families as well as our faculty and leadership teams. We are thankful for all that you do in reaching 100% participation in Annual Giving, contributing to the Endowment and Capital projects, while supporting the many amazing school and church events.

It is truly an exciting time to be at St. Thomas and I wish you all a wonderful 2019-2020 school year.
 
  
Sincerely,
Kristen Munroe
