Andy Fox Back to school at St. John the ApostleAugust 24th, 2010 at 6:35 pm by Andy Fox under Personalities, Uncategorized
I just had the greatest morning at St. John the Apostle Catholic School. It’s back to school Monday, and I was invited by Elise Normille to greet the children coming back to school from Summer Vacation.
The children were wonderful, enthusiastic, and well behaved. Only one child was crying and that was because he was scared of me…sorry about that. The smiles were genuine, they shook hands firmly and stared you in the eye. They were proud to tell you their names.
Before the children came, the teachers had a pre-day prayer. They prayed for a great year to make a difference in the lives of their students. They prayed to be kind, and comforting.
As you can see from the pictures on the school’s website, they gave me a sash. This is the first time I’ve ever worn a sash. It was a nice touch, and I will give the school a shout out on my Saturday morning show along with the sash.
Virginia Beach Councilwoman Barbara Henley was there and very generous with her time. She’s a long time council member and she got a sash too.
Thanks to St. John the Apostle Catholic School. They took a lot of pictures and you can see them on the School’s website at
