From the Principal's desk
Be strong and take heart, all who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:25
We are midway through Catholic Schools Week 2018! What a fun and productive week we have had. Hopefully, you have been able to follow the pictures on our Facebook page.
Many thanks for the outpouring of generosity as we collected diapers and cereal as service projects this week. These will be on display on Friday for you to see.
Many Gifts, One Nation A Day for Giving to Catholic Schools was held for the first time yesterday. Two hundred dollars were donated to our school through his program. Thank you to the donors who took this opportunity to support our school.
On Thursday, Feb. 1 our theme is celebrating vocations. Here is some clarification about dress for Thursday. The three vocations are: single, married, religious life. Students may dress as their “future” vocation which might be serving God as a single nurse or doctor; serving God as a married teacher, banker, construction worker, or artist; or serving God in religious as a priest, brother, or sister. This is a great teaching opportunity to distinguish between careers and vocations. Students may dress down and are encouraged to think about their dress AND their vocation. If a student is dressed as a Physical Education teacher tomorrow, and is asked, “What is your vocation?” The answer would be one of the three vocations: single, married, religious. One answer could be, “I am a single person serving God through my work as a P.E. teacher.” Can’t wait to see what vocation our students choose for tomorrow.
On Friday, Feb. 2 our theme will be focused on all those that make the school possible: faculty, staff, volunteers, and families. Mass is at 8:00 a.m. Students are invited to arrive at school with their parents who are attending mass. Teachers will supervise students whose parents are not able to attend. Please see the schedule for Friday in the STAR today. Dismissal will be after the activities are completed, approximately 11:00 p.m. Buses will not be available. No lunch will be served and there will not be any After School Care. Please make sure your child knows about their dismissal procedure for Friday.
Sat. Feb. 3--- our focus is on socializing and celebrating with school families. Time to kick up our heels! Come join the fun at the Home and School event in the gym Saturday evening. This is hosted by the Home and School Association.
Next week the school will be focused on the ordination and installation of our new bishop.
May God continue to bless us in all that we do to build up His kingdom with hope and love.
