Field Day / End of the Year Picnic
Wednesday, May 23rd
Please make sure to turn in Permission Slips for Field Day.  Parents please join us for lunch around 11:30 at Rebecca Park.  Then be sure your child finds me to say goodbye before you take them home. 

 I was looking around the circle of children this morning during prayer and that heavy heart feeling started to creep in.  I am going to miss every one of them.  I have learned over the years to relish that feeling as it is God's way of letting me know that HE has blessed me once again with more of HIS children to get to know and love.  THANK YOU for sharing them with me.

NEWSLETTER - March 16, 2018

     Dear Parents,

           Please, oh please, turn in your registration forms for the 2018-19 school year.  Planning is underway and important decisions are based on registration numbers.  Thank you!        

  • Penance Service                                                                                                             In preparation for Easter we will be participating in a Penance Service held for the school children this Wednesday, March 21st.  Students will be guided through an examination of conscience in the classroom before going over to the church to prepare their hearts for the Sacrament.  Please make saying Act of Contrition a common occurance at home to ensure your child's mastery of the prayer.  Students that do not participate in the Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation will be able to spend this time in prayer.  We can never have too much time to chat with our best friend, Jesus.

  • Virtue of the Month - Mercy (caring for those who suffer)                                             At the end of each month we have a wrap-up lesson on the virtue of the month.  As part of the lesson, students write down what they did during the month to grow in that virtue.  Listed below are ideas from the parent packet to help support your child's practice of the current virtue.  Hopefully, they will come with lots to share about how they have been growing in MERCY this month.

          1.  Look for those who are hurt and help them.  Sometimes just staying with                       them helps.
          2.  Donate food or clothes to those in need.
          3.  Pray for someone you know is suffering.  It could be someone close to you                   or  a group of people in another part of the world.
