PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
A lesson from our second graders:

Last Friday during school mass, Father Yi posed this scenario to the 2nd graders, “I know some of you have siblings, and you might disagree with each other, you might squabble or fight. How do you come back as one?”

The second graders, in their wisdom, responded:
"Get away from each other."
"Spend time in your room to chill out."
"Read the bible in your room."
"Forgive them."
"Pray."
"Go outside and walk it off."
"Take 10 deep breaths."

Father Yi continued to explain that when you disagree, you might get angry, you could go to your room and do these things, but eventually you should pray and forgive. Jesus said, “I pray that they may be one.”

After discussing different prayers and asking the students if they remembered the Act of Contrition, the whole 2nd grade class spontaneously began to recite the Act of Contrition aloud in unison.

The sound of this was heavenly and I think everyone in the church was touched by this beautiful example of our faith. 

Father Yi then reminded all of us that this is what makes us one. Prayer and forgiveness.

Thanksgiving Stewardship Project Thank You
Thank you to all St. George School families, the faculty and staff for generously donating to our November stewardship project. Everyone's generosity helped us to prepare 37 Thanksgiving meal boxes complete with a gift card to purchase a ham or turkey, and LOTS of extra food to restock the
St. Vincent de Paul pantry here at St. George. Many area families will be blessed this Thanksgiving.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me. (Matthew 25:35)

Congratulations to all the fall sports teams on a very successful fall sports season!! All the student-athletes worked hard in their respective sports and the athletic department is proud of all their efforts and accomplishments!

Fall Sports Uniform Return:
There is a tub in the front office and one in the gym outside of the home team locker room where uniforms may be returned. Make sure the uniforms are clean and placed in a large zip lock bag labeled with your athlete’s name and grade. Please do not use a post it note to label as they tend to fall off the bag. A parent may bring it to the office during normal office hours or you may send it with your child, just make sure your son/daughter does not leave it anywhere on campus other than one of the tubs!! It is their responsibility to make sure it is returned and placed in the tub.
