A note from Mrs. Grant:


The end of another school year is upon us, and although it didn’t quite work out the way we wanted it to,  we still take fond memories of our time together with us.  We also take time now to honor our 5th graders and staff members who are leaving our site.  This 5th-grade class has been one of the best, and I am sad to see them go.  They have been great role models and have shown true leadership, commitment, and passion.

We also honor the following staff members who have been dedicated to our community and purpose and have now decided to seek new adventures.

Sr. Donna Demmer will be retiring at the end of this year along with Linda Gleason, Bev Mach, Carla Carton, and Mimi Resnick.

In addition, Michelle Miller has decided to go back to school, Danielle Bastow has decided to stay home with her baby daughter, Kelsea Bellows will move to kindergarten at OLG, and Jill Harmon will move back to Illinois to be closer to family.

We thank these staff members for their years of dedication to Resurrection and Holy Family and wish them only the best in their new adventures.

Moving TO Resurrection next year are…

  • Grade 5:  Meagan Herkleman, current grade 5 teacher at Holy Ghost

  • Grade 4:  Hayley Foley, current grade 4 teacher at Holy Ghost

  • Grade 1:  Barb Ramousek, current grade 1 teacher at Holy Ghost

  • Grade 1 (additional classroom):  Rose Oswald, current grade 3 teacher at St. Anthony

We, the staff of Resurrection, would like to thank you parents, for your invaluable commitment and support for our school community.   From all of us to you, I share this prayer from the Archdiocese of Baltimore:

Summer blessing for families:

May we make our homes places of relaxation,

joy, love, peace and safety.

May we be generous and considerate,

not thinking only about ourselves,

but helping others enjoy the blessings of the summertime.

Lord God, Creator of all things,

guide our steps and strengthen our hearts

during these months of summer and vacation days.

Grant us refreshment of mind and body.

May we constantly strive to make a meaningful difference

in the lives of our loved ones and in the world around us

as we enjoy the warm days of summertime.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.


Wishing all of you a wonderful summer filled with blessings and God’s grace…

Be safe and enjoy the days ahead of rest and relaxation!!

God is good: All the time!!

Achieve.  Lead.  Soar.
