Happy March! The days are getting longer, but the air is still chilly so please be sure your children come dressed for outdoor recess. This morning, instruction was paused briefly while the building practiced a lockdown. Communion of Saints School continues to run drills so the teachers and children will be prepared for emergencies. The students did a wonderful job and maintained silence in their classrooms during the entire fifteen minute drill.
A few reminders:
*We are approaching a long weekend. Please be conscious of staying in your ‘bubble’. The buffer is five days from any gatherings or travel before returning to school.
*When dropping students off in the morning, please enter from Stillman and exit by Coventry.
*When picking up students at the end of the day, please enter from Coventry and exit by Stillman. I appreciate your participation in these guidelines to avert any accidents. From what I can see, in the afternoons, cars are following the pattern through the church parking lot. This remains extremely important.
*Lastly, please have your children exit the car quickly in the mornings; also maintain a slow speed when exiting the parking lot at the end of the day.
The end of the school year is three months away. However, I would like to make you aware of some personnel changes. Miss Natalie Powers has decided to move back to New York at the end of the school year and will not resume her contract for next year. She has been an outstanding contributor to our staff and she will be greatly missed. I will begin the search for her replacement soon. Two other individuals from our third-party vendors, Ms. Deondra Benson and Mrs. Pat Prunty, have left their positions and will not be servicing students starting immediately. I am looking for their replacements, but it may take some time.
Please tune into 95.5 The Fish to hear our advertising spots! The schedule of times is listed in the chronicle below.
Lenten reflection: Mark 10:27
Jesus looked at them and said, “For men it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God.”
Have a restful long weekend and continue to keep the students, faculty and staff, families, and the world in your prayers!
