Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is with great joy that I present to you our new principal for St. Peter’s School. After an
arduous process that involved advertizing the position in the secular media, setting up
of a Principal Search Committee, reviewing the résumés and interviewing the most
suitable candidates from among them, Phyllis A. Sisco was discerned as the most fitting
candidate to lead our School as of the upcoming School Year. She graciously accepted
our offer to become the new principal, fully cognizant of the importance of affording our
students a Catholic education that shapes them into moral individuals who will contribute
to the growth of the Kingdom of God and the community.
Mrs. Sisco brings with her nearly thirty years of experience as an educator. After having
taught in a number of schools – both public and private – Mrs. Sisco served as Principal
of Our Lady of the Magnificat School in Kinnelon, NJ. According to her former employer,
Mrs. Sisco “provided excellent academic leadership, evidenced by the school’s vastly
improved curriculum and “Star” school status … brought both much needed discipline
and a strong work ethic … motivated and inspired teachers, and fostered and advanced
the use of technology throughout the school.”
Mrs. Sisco’s academic achievements are second to none, having received a Master in
Elementary Education in 1988 and a Master in Arts in Educational Administration in 2004.
All this augurs well for St. Peter’s School, as we work together to make our school a place
of excellence in all areas.
Parents, prospective parents, alumni and supporters of St. Peter’s School will have to
opportunity to get to know Mrs. Sisco during a “Meet and Greet the New Principle” social,
that will be held this coming Tuesday (August 31) from 7PM to 9PM at the Rectory. All will
have the opportunity to greet Mrs. Sisco, enjoy a drink and some refreshments, in the
company of fellow supporters of St. Peter’s School. Hopefully, the new members of our
faculty will also be present at the gathering.
As you can see, it has indeed been a busy summer at St. Peter’s School, which also saw
the refurbishment of the Gym floor, installation of new fire-doors and the installation of a
new telephone and internet system. We are now looking forward to the opening of the
I take this opportunity to invite those parents who are still considering affording their
children a quality Catholic education to contact us in the coming days, or visit St. Peter’s
School at their convenience. Many parents have already seen that in spite of the
struggles in paying for their children’s tuition, God always provides for those who put
their trust in Him.
I also take this opportunity to heart fully thank Brother Ralph Darmento, F.S.C. (from the
Archdiocesan Schools Office) and the members of the Principal Search Committee for
their dedication and the wise advice they provided me in discerning the new principal.
Fr. Ivan Sciberras
