St. Therese Weekly Newsletter - October 7, 2020
Our Lady of the Rosary, Pray for us!
Today is the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, and the month of October is dedicated to the holy rosary. I encourage everyone in our community to meditate on the sacred mysteries of the most holy rosary, and offer your prayers for the care and protection of our beloved St. Therese School community. Our Holy Mother has been so good to us, and I feel her presence in everything we do throughout the day - her guiding hand gently at our backs through our struggles and our victories.
The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is a celebration of victory (click the link below for the full story), and the ways in which praying the rosary has answered prayers throughout church history. Please hold our community in your hearts and pray:
Full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Mother of God
Pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of our death,
May the God of Love bless you all this week and always.

October 9th, NO SCHOOL - Statewide Inservice
Supply Drive-thru Friday from 2 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Some teachers have materials they would like to distribute to students. If they don't have materials for your students, then you do not need to come to the school for the drive-thru. If this time doesn't work for you, please contact the office so we can schedule a time that works better.
Follow the same pattern you did for our Welcome Week conferences - drive up to the front of the computer lab and someone will bring the supplies to you.
We appreciate the extra effort on your part, and love the way these moments help us stay connected to our families!
Thanksgiving Week, November 23-27, there will be no school for students. Conferences will be held on November 23rd and 24th, and the 25th will be a teacher work day.
This means that we will have our regularly scheduled Limited In-Person Learning October 19-23.
Thank you for your flexibility!

We are so grateful for your generosity! With your donations we purchased a Distance Learning T-shirt for each student and staff member to wear on Fridays!
Middle School LIP
If you have a middle school student and would like to sign your child up to attend a LIP study hall session, please use the link your teacher shared with you. Because we have to keep cohorts in-tact, we need time to make changes and accommodate those requests. Students signed up by Thursday will be added to the schedule for the following week, as long as space allows.
