The Trekker Times

Yesterday was the feast day of St. Peter Damian who lived in the 11th century. He was a Benedictine monk who was very good to the poor. He also advised popes on the controversies of his time and today is a Doctor of the Church. He was very young when his parents died, and one of his older brothers took him into his home. He was not treated well until another of his older brothers, Damian, adopted him at the age of 12. Peter was so grateful that he took his brother's name as part of his own. That is why he is known as St. Peter Damian. Below is a story from his life that reminds us to aim for joys that will last, not fleeting, worldly desires.
March is right around the corner! Our re-enrollment night will be here before we know it. This year our re-enrollment night will be a virtual event held on Tuesday, March 16th. We will be having an all school zoom meeting to go through the process with you. Please put that date on your calendar.
Our Caught Being a Christian Award this week goes to Elise Cameron. She helped Mrs. DeLong and other classmates pick up school supplies that were dropped on the floor. She was practicing the virtue of kindness. Great job, Elise!
