St. Raymond School's principal, Sister Ann Bernard, will be leaving after 16 years in the position, the Menlo Park Catholic school announced today (Jan. 25).
"These 16 years have been fulfilling in a very meaningful way for me," Sister Bernard said in a statement. "My years in Catholic education have contributed to my own faith life and community experience and for this I am most grateful."
Sister Bernard, who will be leaving the private K-8 school at the end of the academic year, was the assistant superintendent at the dioceses of San Jose before she became St. Raymond's principal.
Father William Myers, pastor of St. Raymond Catholic Church, is leading the search, interview and selection process for a new principal. He said he will name a new principal later this spring.
