Weekly Newsletter – March 7, 2019

PRINCIPAL’S NOTE

We started Lent, the 40 days of Preparation for Easter, yesterday with Ash Wednesday. We will focus on three goals of Lenten activity: Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving. Ask your student what these mean to them.

BENEFIT GALA, SATURDAY, MARCH 9, 2019

Please keep our students, staff, families, and supporters in prayer for a Successful and Blessed Evening!

POTHOLES

Please thank Director of Public Works: Ms. Girthal Clemons, 618-482-6743, gclemons@cesl.us. For quick action to fill these awful potholes last week. We asked and she got the work done as promised!

FORTNITE, SMART PHONES AND TABLETS

We are seeing students fall asleep in the morning classes, and they are very honest:

“I was up late”: “playing FORTNITE”; “on SNAPCHAT”; “watching YOUTUBE”.

PLEASE do your students a favor and collect their phones, tablets, etc before 8 PM.

We cannot educate a student who is half asleep. They need your help to set/understand limits of the Internet.

PTO MEETING: MARCH 7 at 6 PM

Please join us to discuss Benefit Gala, End of the Year Family BBQ and more! Thank you for the great support!
