A MESSAGE FROM MRS. BORDO
Faith in Action: Makes Ordinary Extraordinary

“Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” I Corinthians 10:31

Dear Parents,

Special thanks to all of our First Grade Craft Day volunteers ! It was a great morning of hands-on fun for your children with amazing craft stations including colorful pine cone turkeys, baby Jesus star ornaments, yarn sewn Christmas trees, painted pumpkins, the shield from the Armor of God, snow globes, and penguins. Students also had the opportunity to make their own trail mix snack. A huge thank you to everyone who made this a special morning for all of our first graders!

Our Thanksgiving Feast was absolutely delicious!  Thank you to the Medure family for all that you did to make the lunch so special and for helping us bless the Light of Life Rescue Mission. Thank you to Kathy Chopp, the many parent volunteers, and the sixth graders who worked diligently to make the day a success. We are truly grateful!


Sincerely,
Mrs. Bordo
Wexford Campus Principal
First Grade Craft Day
Chapel led by Fourth Grade

Fourth grade students presented the story of the 10 lepers and reminded us of the importance of an attitude of gratitude. 

Luke 17:15 says that, “One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him and he was a Samaritan.” 

May each one of us follow the Samaritan’s example and humble ourselves at the feet of Jesus with a heart filled with thanksgiving.
