Another school year is upon us. This is a time of excitement, hope, and new beginnings for some; and a time of stress, uncertainty, and even depression for others. How can parents help their children navigate this time of year; and what’s the best approach for students? Today, we’re joined by Vincent Spadoni, the principal at St. Elizabeth Catholic School in Rockville, Maryland where they educate preschool to eighth-grade students. The Archdiocese of Washington's 2012 Principal of the Year joins us to share his advice for parents, students and educators as the school year kicks off; his passion for the academic, emotional, and spiritual well-being of his students; and how applying the teachings of the Gospel propelled St. Elizabeth towards recognition as a Blue-Ribbon School of Excellence.
