Letter: St. Ann School's lesson in spirit


Gloucester Daily Times

---- — To the editor:

Last week, our little school received a huge gift from St. Ann School – a computer lab and curriculum materials worth several times more than our annual budget for equipment and supplies.

At a time when one group of families, teachers, and school/parish leaders are feeling hurt, disappointed and sad, they lifted the hearts and hopes of another group.

On the surface, some might wonder why, but underneath, what else would be expected of an organization that served its community for over 100 years, helping others and spreading love throughout the city.

The children and their families, teachers, and staff of Eastern Point Day School, formerly St. Mel Independent School, thank the people of St. Ann School and the Holy Family Parish for your kindness and generosity.

Without friends like you, we would not survive and continue providing an educational option on Cape Ann.
