We have a busy Lent scheduled here at Holy Trinity School. We started with Ash Wednesday yesterday. When students returned from Mass, they were greeted with dark hallways to remind them of the quiet, dark season we are beginning.

Throughout Lent students will be learning about Jesus through The Jesus Tree. A Jesus Tree, similar to a Jesse Tree, walks you through all the major events of Jesus's life, death and resurrection over the 40 days of Lent. Daily, students will listen to scripture and reflection and say prayers together.

We will be doing Stations of the Cross each week during Lent. Also, our 3rd-8th graders will be having Reconciliation.

For our Home Connection, we sent home a Lenten Prayer Booklet with the oldest child in the family yesterday. Each week it teaches us about different ways to pray. Please use this with your family and try out different forms of prayer! We are also doing prayer intentions which you can read about below!

Our Service Project is for the Kewaskum Community Pantry. Each week there are different items we are asking families to donate. See the flyer attached.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the school office. Thank you!

Lent - Prayer Intentions

Prayers of Supplication - Praying for and with each other!

During Lent, we would like to unite our school community by offering prayers for those in need as part of our morning announcements. For the next 6 weeks, please send prayer intentions to school with your child or contact your child's teacher. Prayer intentions will be added to a book by the office. New intentions will be read each day followed by an all school prayer.

Picture Retakes

Tomorrow, February 19th, is Picture Retake Day and Class Candids. Please dress nicely!

ITBS Testing

Teachers in 2nd-8th grade sent a letter home about ITBS testing. Just a reminder that testing is between March 1st-20th. If you have any questions, please contact us.

A Note from Mrs. Longden

Ash Wednesday and the 40 days of Lent have begun. During this Lenten season, let us focus on this as an opportunity to make changes to our daily lives and become closer to God. During this journey, we may want to ask ourselves: What would I like to change or modify this Lent? How can I become a better person? It is from these motivations that we can draw our so-called “Lenten practices.” After all, the ultimate goal of our spiritual life is to become more like Jesus; reaching out to help others. Lent affords us the time for a renewal process. Our main focus is to prepare ourselves for the holiest day of the year, Easter. As a school community we are focusing on being gifts to each other and to have a better understanding of what Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving is.

I pray that Lent brings you and your family great peace as we await the Feast of Easter and

may God bless you and keep you safe.

God Bless,

Mrs. Longden
