PRAYER

God of infinite love,
I thank you for this reminder of your love
and your call that we be more patient,
gentle and compassionate with others.
Here in the middle of Lent,
I turn to you to beg for your help.
Please soften my heart.
Help me to let go of judging others.
I ask you this, in Jesus' name.

Amen

CLASS COLOR DAY

Today was our all school dress-up Class Color day picked by 8th grade. We gathered in the church for a quick all school picture to showcase the different colors!

DRESS-UP DAY MARCH 18TH, 2021

We will have another all school dress up day sponsored by the 8th grade class. Thursday March 18th will be a Black Out Day. Everyone can wear Black.

DRESS CODE

Please help us with our dress code. Most days our students come to school dressed appropriately for school, adhering to the dress code. But there are too many days, including Mass days and Liturgy Days (which include Stations of the Cross), when the dress code is not followed.

I ask you to please review the school dress code found in the Family Handbook with your child. Identify clothing in their wardrobe that does not fit the dress code and do not allow them to wear it to school. Of particular concern is the length of tops/shirts worn with leggings or yoga pants. Also, students are wearing athletic clothes on Mass days and for Stations of the Cross. Please reference the dress code for guidelines. There will be an update to the dress code shared with you soon that Advisory Committee has worked on and agreed upon.

The purpose of a dress code is to provide guidance to students and parents as to appropriate attire for school and at school functions. A dress code promotes a more serious school atmosphere which emphasizes academics and promotes good behavior. School dress codes are a way to teach students the importance of a respectable appearance which is a lesson that can positively impact their self-respect and self-esteem. Dress codes are needed for safety reasons and to prevent clothes from becoming a distraction in the classroom, and they also prepare students for the working world. And most importantly, it is one way we honor our bodies as a temple of the Holy Spirit.

PICTURES FROM STATIONS OF THE CROSS

Students participated in Stations of the Cross on Friday, March 5th. Here are some pictures from it. Students attend Stations of the Cross once a week during Lent.

TUITION/REGISTRATION FORMS

We are still at 0%. Thanks for all your help keeping us safe and open.


We will be ending morning temperature checks on Monday, March 29th. Please continue to monitor symptoms at home and do self-screening checks with your children.

A NOTE FROM Mrs. Longden

Community and relationships are an important part of our families, our school, and even each one of us as human persons. Even our Christian understanding of God is relational. God is a trinity of persons, and He created us to love and to be loved. Our personal relationship with Jesus is incredibly important, but Jesus also left us a church to feed our natural need for community. Unfortunately the COVID pandemic has made it much more difficult for us to interact in meaningful ways. Thank you to all of you that have been supportive and helpful this year. You have made this school year successful. We have been doing a great job keeping our school open and operating. A lot of work was put in to this school year planning and functioning and you have made it possible. Thank you.

God Bless,

Mrs. Longden
