Building Champions

Students began the morning with a beautiful breakfast spread provided by the fifth grade parents. Eighth graders led fifth grade students through their second leadership retreat of the year integrating faith and leadership. Fifth graders are ready to use their skills and strategies with their kinder little buddies.

Thank you to all of our parents for providing this wonderful feast to celebrate our students and prepare them for a great retreat!

Message from Nurse O'Brien

Dear Parents and Teachers,

As we push through the cold/flu season, a few reminders of what we can all do to help keep our children healthy may be helpful.

Please remember to:

· cover coughs and sneezes with “elbow pit” or “chelidon”

· wash hands and use hand sanitizer frequently (especially before eating or after using the restroom)

· avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

· refrain from eating or drinking after others

· avoid close contact with others who are sick

It’s not too late to:

· Get a flu shot

Helathy habits to help prevent illnesses:

· Eating healthy food

· Drinking adequate amounts of water

· Getting plenty of rest

· Regular exercise

· Good handwashing

Below are the diocesan guidelines regarding when students should stay home and when they are ready to return from an illness.

Almighty Father, You sent forth your Son as a beacon of hope for all people. As Teacher, he has given us the prime example of the importance of education. As disciples, we look to him for inspiration and strength. Thank you for the many sisters, brothers, priests, and laypeople who have dedicated their lives in service to our Catholic schools. Thank you for the teachers and administrators who sustain our schools today. Thank you for the parents who have given support and witness to the importance of Catholic education in their daily lives. Thank you for the students who work hard to further their education. Bless Saint Maria Goretti Catholic School and the many people who advance our mission. May our building be a home for those who seek to grow in faith, knowledge, and service of others. May our community always support one another and exhibit hospitality to newcomers. Fill our minds with knowledge and wisdom. May our understanding of the world help us to grow in appreciation for it. Fill our hearts with gladness. May we always turn to you in times of need. Fill our hands with the tools we need to serve others. May we show them your unceasing love through our actions. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us. Saint John Neumann, pray for us. Saint Maria Goretti pray for us. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
