October is the month of the rosary! Each classroom is finding a way to celebrate the beauty of the rosary. As a school community, we will pray the entire rosary together. It is a blessing to be able to feature such an important Marian devotion. Mary’s role has always been the woman who leads us to Christ. She risked her life and reputation to bring our Savior into the world. She, by God’s grace, brought Christ to us and showed him to us at Bethlehem, presented him in the Temple, and ushered in his first miracle despite his reluctance. Her example to us was one of being loyal, brave, humble, and above all, loving. When we ask her for her prayers, it demonstrates our understanding that she has a mother’s heart and a mother’s love for her Son and those whom He redeemed with His own Precious Blood.
As we move through this first trimester and these beautiful fall days, remember that positive results in academic achievement come from both home and school. We appreciate how you support your children by helping them to develop proper organizational and study skills, handling time management, and the proper use of resources. Please be sure to check our website and MSP to be aware of what is happening in your child’s class and his/her progress. Remember that you can contact our teachers at any time if you have a concern or would like to discuss your child.
Thank you for your constant support as we continue to walk this journey together and bring the love of Jesus to others!
High School Night- Save the Date
Healthy Hands, Healthy Heart
Fall is here, and with the cool breeze comes the unfortunate cold and flu! If your child is sick, please keep him or her home. Please remind your child to always remember to wash his or her hands. Studies have proven that hand washing (next to the flu shot) is the BEST way to avoid colds and flu. A healthy diet and sleep also keep your immune system going, so be sure that your child gets plenty of rest!
Student Safety First
Please enter the morning drop-off car line with caution. The morning drop off is an express line; parents may not stop and get out of their cars. Students must exit from the PASSENGER SIDE only. Students MUST be ready to exit the car once pulling into the car line drop-off in order to eliminate back-up traffic. DO NOT DRIVE OUT OF THE CAR LINE. PLEASE WAIT FOR THE LINE TO MOVE SLOWLY TO EXIT.
If you need to bring your child into the school building, you MUST park your car in the front of the school and enter through the main school entrance. You must report to the office. No cars are permitted to park or idle in front of the school in the fire lane.
Please make every effort to get your child to school on time. This teaches our students respect and courtesy along with an understanding of the importance of being on time. When a child is late, it disrupts the morning routines of the classroom and often the child becomes overwhelmed.
