Highlights from 1st-5th Grade Classes this Week:

In our Large Group Opening Lesson in the cafeteria this week, we began with a prayer to Thank God for all of our dedicated Volunteer Catechists! Where would we be if we didn't know our Catholic Faith, especially in times of anxiety, temptatation, and fear?  

Along with Thanking God for our catechists (religion teachers), we thanked Him for our parents, grandparents, other family members, friends and most certainly our priests who hand on or echo the Holy Catholic Faith to us.  We hope you felt our prayers for YOU! 

Did you  know it is a Work of Mercy to "Instruct the ignorant"? It is!  
"Missionaries, catechists, confessors, Christian writers and teachers- all who teach religion or other useful knowledge-are doing an important work of mercy, and will receive a reward.  "They that instruct many unto justice shall shine as stars for all eternity" (Dan. 12:3).  

Valentine's Day is next week, so if possible, please help your child to make a small Valentine to bring to class next week for their catechist. These volunteers work very hard teaching each child just how much 
they are loved by Almighty God.  Thank you!



  
We then began to prepare for Mass this coming Sunday, February 12th, 2017.  Please enjoy these resources at home:

It is so heartwarming to see how many children are proud of their table work, and hand them to me to put in this newsletter!  They are all so unique...Excellent work kids!!!


  Go  to  this link for the Mass Quiz & Mass Quiz Answer Key

Look at our wonderful students, so proud of learning their Catholic Faith. Our desk work each week helps to quiet our students and give them a visual aid during the Opening Lesson.  

Working on something quietly while listening is very calming...along these same lines, if your student is interested, they will get the opportunity to lean how to knit in the coming weeks!  It's just another way for them to be creative while learning their catechism...watch for a signup coming soon. Are you a knitter?  Contact me if you would like to help.  Thanks!

General Info: 

The parking lot was better this week! Thank you!!!  

As always, we ask you to please park in a parking spot and walk your students into the building or walk them to the "car free zone" directly in front of the cafeteria doors between the gate and orange cones. 

 

Curbside drop-off is only allowed along the sidewalk in the front of the school, but entry into the building is still through the cafeteria doors.  Cars may not pass or create two lanes for the safety of students exiting cars.  

 

Please be patient, and help us to keep all students safe. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation once again!

  • K-5 Drop off is in school cafeteria.  Pick up for all students is at the classroom. 
  • Please walk your K-3rd grade child into the building and come back in to pick them up. 4th grade and older may walk in and be dismissed unaccompanied with parental permission.
  • 6th graders should be dropped off and picked up in the Youth Room
  • Check below for specific details about your child's grade-level class.
