A season of treats, no tricks!
As we get closer to Halloween our classes are reflecting more on the treats (blessings) we are receiving compared to the tricks.
We have been talking as a school about the treat of the rosary. Many saints teach us about their devotion to Mary and praying the rosary. Students are learning about the different mysteries that we reflect on and how they help us learn more about God's love for us and bring us closer to Him.
5th grade has been working on a physical outdoor rosary that can be prayed and remind us of God's great love. You may have seen pumpkins or rocks that have been set outside along the garden beds with information about how to pray the rosary.
We are so very fortunate to be able to pray and share our faith with each other everyday.
Still collecting items for the animal shelter until October 31st.
Halloween Family Dance and Trunk or Treat - Friday, October 27.
A couple notes from the PTO regarding the event:
- Parent or relative over the age of 18 must accompany children under 18 to the event and be present outside with child(ren) during the trunk or treat event for safety reasons.
- There will be a raffle. Tickets available for purchase, but an additional free ticket will be given if a canned good (vegetables, fruit, soup, pasta, etc.), box of pasta, jar of sauce, rice, or beans are brought to the event to support the Geneva Center of Concern.
Do you know someone who would be a great vendor at our Shopping Extravaganza?
