LENT

Lent began Wednesday, February 10, with the celebration of Mass and the blessing of ashes which were then placed on our foreheads in the sign of the cross. This is a sign that we are Christians and are entering a holy season of preparation for Easter. During Lent we will focus on prayer, almsgiving, and fasting. Students wrote out their intentions for the season and placed them in a basket. Ask them what they will do during this holy season to prepare themselves for Christ’s resurrection.

ANNUAL BENEFIT DINNER

Two weeks and counting!
Thanks to those of you who returned your money for the two tickets for the March 5th Annual Benefit Dinner.    As you are aware, each family is required to purchase or sell two tickets to the dinner, or pay a $100.00 fundraising fee.  Tickets that will not be used should be returned to school.  This will help us have a more accurate meal count for the caterer.

Thanks, also, to those who have volunteered to donate a basket or silent auction item. We are in need of many more, so please consider sharing your “time or treasure” with us to make this Benefit Dinner the very best.  Joy is in the giving!

***Remember, we are also selling raffle tickets for a chance to win $10,000! Only 300 will be sold at $100/ticket.

MIDTERMS

Third quarter progress reports will be sent home with your child tomorrow.   Also note that all outstanding balances for tuition, meals and Extended Day must be paid in order for this report to be sent.  Please contact the school office for more information.

EXTENDED DAY-SESSION 5

PEACEMAKER

February Peacemaker Activity will be Friday, February 26.  This year we will celebrate with a Talent Show in the chapel staring at 1:30pm. Students have already auditioned and should be practicing what they will present. If your child was a Peacemaker throughout February, they may be out of uniform and enjoy time in the chapel.  Those who were not peacemakers will be in uniform and attend a Second Step class to help build on the skills needed to stay a peacemaker.

***Please join us in the chapel for our very first Talent Show!
