Windsor Spitfire Assistant Captain, Slater Doggett, visits Stella Maris

Slater Doggett of the Windsor Spitfires took time out of his busy schedule to speak to Stella Maris students and enjoy a couple of slices of pizza with a few lucky fans too!  Slater told students that perseverance, team work and a positive attitude helped him get to where he is right now in his hockey career.  When asked what he thought was the hardest thing about playing for the Windsor Spitfires, he answered, "being so far away from my family and friends".  After answering questions from each classroom, Slater took time to sign a few autographs and take a few photos.  Before leaving for practice, he enjoyed some pizza with young Spitfire fans.

Thank you Windsor Spitfires for adopting Stella Maris School and for taking the time to visit!

Around the County Challenge

Dads Matter Conference


Danny Cahill - The Winner of the Biggest Loser

Danny Cahill, winner of the Biggest Loser is coming to Holy Names Catholic High School.  On Thursday, May 8th at 7:00 pm, come learn a story and learn strategies that will change your life forever.  “No matter the obstacle, challenge or dream – nothing is too big if you ‘Lose Your Quit’ and decide to go the distance. The hard part is getting through those times when it seems like you are making little or no progress – like everything you’re doing just isn’t making a difference.  The truth is that the difference between those who complete the race set before them and those who give up is a single decision made a thousand  times over – to simply FINISH!  So how do you make that decision over and over? Listen to Danny Cahill, Season 8 winner of NBC’s The Biggest Loser share what he learned on the Ranch in California while losing 239 pounds in less than 7 months that made the difference in his Journey.  The very lessons he learned there are the same principles you can use in your daily struggles to overcome anything life can throw your way!”
7:00 pm. in the Jobin Theatre at Holy Names Catholic High School on Thursday, May 8th.  Hope to see you there.
