Dear Crusader Family,
Jesus has promised, “Come to me all you who labor and find life burdensome, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
As we complete our first week of online studies, adjusted living conditions and new lifestyle changes, I want to thank everyone for coming together as one community. The entire McDevitt family has gone above and beyond in facing this health crisis and how it is affecting our school operations.
What lies ahead is no easy task. Uncertainty brings fear and questions, but I ask we all lean on one another to stay bonded in faith, tradition, and excellence. Together we will meander our way through these troubled times and return stronger than ever. Behind the scenes our administrative team, department chairs, faculty, staff and facilities personnel have been working tirelessly to keep McDevitt moving forward and on track.
I can't thank everyone enough for all they are doing. I would also like to thank our students for tackling this immense obstacle. Especially our seniors, you have been an amazing class all year and have paved the way for our student body. All of you - seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen - are now a part of a new chapter in American History. As such, you will become the storytellers for future generations. I assure you, this experience will make you stronger as a student and school community. I implore you to stay together and continue to help one another. Be safe, be strong and be a Crusader!
Thank you everyone.
In Faith, God Bless,
Dr. David Gardiner
Bishop McDevitt High School
