A Message from our Principal

We continue our journey through the Lenten season. In yesterday’s Gospel from St. Luke, God revealed Jesus’ true nature to the apostles, Peter, John, and James. While the three apostles were with Jesus on the mountain, a cloud came over them and voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!” It is our calling to listen to the words of Jesus and to follow his teachings.

The three pillars of Lent are: praying, fasting, and almsgiving. Each of us needs to pray more, and, pray at a consistent time of day. Whether we pray in the morning, on our lunch break, and on our knees before we go to bed, our prayers mean that we are talking with God and God speaks back---IF we are listening.

Please continue to encourage your children to collect spare change for the Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl encounter. It’s a great was to give alms to the poor.

Peace in Christ,

Dr. John Shreve

CRS Rice Bowl is Catholic Relief Services’ Lenten program for families and faith communities in the United States who want to put their faith in action. In its first 40 years, more than $250 million has been given through CRS Rice Bowl to support programs that prevent hunger and poverty around the world. Cardboard CRS Rice Bowls and Lenten calendars have been sent home with all students today.

School Wide Paper Drive

This week we will be collecting paper products for the Sisters of Saint Mary of Namur. Please bring Kleenex, paper towels and toilet paper. All items collected will be delivered to the Sisters for use in their convent. Please help make this a success. We will be collecting until March 22nd!

Fifth Grade Pop Top Tab Collection; Benefitting the Ronald McDonald House

Fifth grade is sponsoring a drive to collect pop tabs (on aluminum cans) to donate to the Ronald McDonald house. These pop tabs will be turned into cash for the families who receive services through Ronald McDonald. Thank you for your help with this fabulous service project.

Home and School Association Meeting UPDATE!

There will be an HSA meeting on Wednesday, March 27. Meeting time of 6:30 PM.

Just a reminder that this next meeting will be one with a lot of information specifically targeting Teacher Appreciation Week. This is the biggest event for the HSA and I'd like to go over ways to make it even better than last year.

Also, please begin asking your parents for any gift card donations they would be willing to help out with. We have roughly 6 weeks before we will be needing them with an additional week for final preparations.

As always, THANK YOU so much for all the time and effort you give to our school and our teachers and our children!!!
