A Message from Our Principal
Merry Christmas! We are still in the liturgical season of Christmas until January 14. Today in our Monday prayer service, we prayed the Holy Rosary. In the Third Glorious Mystery, we celebrated the incarnation of Christ, Our Savior. We talked about the Feast of the Epiphany and how the three kings (Magi) followed the star and found Jesus lying in a manger. They kneeled at the feet of Jesus and presented Jesus with gold, frankincense, and myrrh. What gift(s) did you give Jesus? God gave us the gift of His only Son. A great gift that we can give Jesus, is to love one another, as Jesus loves us.
Thanks to all parents for your cooperation in dropping off your children in the school cafeteria. Your children are wonderful. Additionally, we are trying out an intercom system at our main entry door. This is NOT for our families. It’s being proactive in trying to screen visitors who we do not know and to keep the school safer.
Report Cards will go out this Friday, January 11. Recognition will be on Monday, January 14, immediately following our prayer service. You are always welcome to attend.
Peace in Christ,
Dr. John Shreve
