PRINCIPAL’S NOTE
This month we will teach the students about the Rosary. This meditative prayer reflects on the life of Jesus and is a tradition that was passed down from St. Dominic in 1214. Your students should be able to tell you the prayers and mysteries of the rosary, and they will have a rosary to use.

NO SCHOOL FRIDAY
You are receiving the “Thursday Envelope” today because there is no school Friday. All teachers will be attending a special Teachers Convention at Holy Trinity Church.

WE HAVE SCHOOL MONDAY, NO BUS SERVICE
Monday is Columbus Day, but we do have classes. There will be no bus service.
