The Borromeo School Bulletin
October 26, 2023- Edition #210
Note from Dr. Mullenschlader
Don't forget tomorrow is a half-day, which is a change from the original school calendar.
All Saints Day is coming very soon! Tomorrow, our first graders will dress up as saints. This tradition in our school is so beautiful because it provides a living example to our children of those who are already in heaven. Students can learn about people who were just like them and made the decision, some of them as children, to dedicate their life to God and his divine will. I love the stories of the saints and having our first graders represent them is one of the best days of the year. I hope you all will join us for Mass tomorrow.
Fall Break is here! Enjoy the time away from school and when we get back to our school year on November 6th we only have 6 weeks until Christmas. That can be exciting, but it also means that life is going to get very busy. And during the busyness of the holiday season, we all need to remember to pause and reflect on the blessings we have. As we approach All Saints Day, All Souls Day, and Thanksgiving, I pray that we can all be grateful for the people in our lives who have impacted us and the blessings that we have! In an effort to help our children grow in this virtue, during the month of November, we will be building our virtue muscles in the area of gratitude!
Have a blessed break! See you in November!

Virtue of the Month - Generosity
Generosity is giving of oneself in a willing and cheerful manner for the good of others
St. Elizabeth of Hungary married the Prince of Thuringia, which is in Germany. She spent hours in prayer during the day and tended to the people of her village. She took clothing and food to the poor, which did not make the Prince's family happy, because she was giving away food. She is famous for giving bread to those who were in need. One day, God granted her a miracle associated with that bread as a witness of her generosity. - adapted from the Disciples of Christ: Education in Virtue
You can read about the miracle of the loaves into roses here :
Here is a prayer for the children to say at home: Dear Jesus, Let me share myself with others as You share Your life with me.
Veteran's Day Celebration
We will be honoring the family members of students that are Veteran's on November 10. The celebration will begin with Mass at 8:00 am. We ask that the Veteran family members and the students (of the family members) sit up front at Mass. Following the Mass will be a Veteran speaker, a brief celebration of songs honoring them, and a simple breakfast in the Café for the Veteran and their student(s). The celebration should end by 10:00 am. We ask that only Veteran family members attend and not close friends of family. If you have a Veteran that will be attending with your student, please fill out this form by Friday, October 27. https://forms.gle/apm4tKPkat26F6DL7 . The Veteran will need to be at church around 7:50-7:55 to meet their student.
