Father Jack Siefert told the students to prepare, with God’s help, for a 9 month marathon race called school. He called the students forward with their backpacks and gave them a blessing.
He told them “The marathon is on! On your mark, get ready, get set, go!” He reminded the children that with God’s help, they would have an amazing school year.
Saint Mary Magdalen Catholic School is located at 8750 Magdalen Ave., in Brentwood.
