From the Principal's desk

Be strong and take heart, all who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:25

Catholic Schools Week is almost here! We invite your family to participate in the activities as you are able. The 5:30 Saturday evening Mass (Jan. 27) will be St. Stanislaus School kickoff Mass. How great to join with our supportive parish as we begin the special week of recognizing the gift we have in a parish school. We are celebrating “through all generations”!

This week on our school’s Facebook page the school is posting some pictures from the past to get everyone in the spirit of celebrating the gift of our Catholic School.

On Monday, Jan. 29 our theme is celebrating our community. What better way to celebrate than to remember the unborn. Our parish is so active is this mission. Students may wear pink, blue or prolife shirts that day with “accessories” to accent the theme. This could include hair bows, bibs, pacifiers, bottles, rattles, etc. That which causes a disruption to the learning process will not be allowed. Students are expected to wear their dress code bottoms, so no onesies. During our Morning Gathering times on Tuesday and Friday of this week, we have been talking to the student body about how to make Catholic Schools Week fun and still continue the learning process. Donate diapers for the Pregnancy Help Center/Birthright if your family chooses this service.

On Tuesday, Jan. 30 our theme is celebrating our students. It is a regular dress down day. All students will spend two hours at the YMCA in Jefferson City participating in different activities. It would be good if they choose comfortable clothes for being active. We are thankful to our Home and School Association for taking care of the costs for this event. Permission slips are being sent home today and need to be returned by Monday, Jan. 30. Donate boxes of cereal for the Samaritan Center if you family chooses this service.

Many Gifts, One Nation; A Day for Giving to Catholic Schools. Our special donation webpage will go live for a 24 hour period. This is a nationwide event hosted by NCEA. Anyone can make an online donation to our school on this page. Please share this link as you are able.

Time: The Day of Giving is a 24 hour period beginning on January 30th at 9:00am Eastern, and lasting until January 31st at 9:00am Eastern. Once this time frame has passed, donors will see a notice that the NCEA National Day of Giving has ended and they will not be able to submit any donations.

On Wednesday, Jan. 31 our theme is celebrating our nation. Students may wear red, white, and blue tops (patriotic tops). We are thankful to have our Knights of Columbus and veterans join in our celebration. There will be a Patriotic Rosary in Church at 8:00. Students will be involved in a service project for the deployed members of our parish and making cards for veterans.

On Thursday, Feb. 1 our theme will be celebrating vocations. Students may dress as a future vocation or their favorite teacher (that will be interesting!) Since the new bishop ordination is less than a week away, this vocation day will be focused on the role of bishop. Classroom teachers will be instructing about this event and doing related activities. The school began the Novena for the bishop yesterday.

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., reception to follow with added activities (photo booth, historical timeline, posters, and the service projects done throughout the week). Students will present talent as each class focuses on a different decade of history. In between some acts will be some fun activities regarding “through the generations.” Come to have some fun and to celebrate. 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.

So you can see that much is happening and with all this there is learning, too!

May God continue to bless us all in the busy week ahead.
