The hallways were rather quiet, and many student seats were empty, as our school family experienced quite a bit of illness this past week! With 45 students absent on Monday, we were certain that the week would improve, however the absences continued throughout the remainder of the week and even included some of our staff members. Please use next week to rest, and recuperate!
Those who were healthy enough to endure the week at school enjoyed a
Burying of the Alleluia
celebration on Tuesday, which was quickly followed by a prayerful and meaningful
! Father Williams outlined for us the focus of our Lenten journey, as he defined and gave concrete examples of
prayer, fasting and almsgiving
Our students prayerfully considered their Lenten sacrifices and made plans to pray more often and give from the heart. We are looking forward to a prayerful, penitential and fruitful Lent!
As always, fun was had on the first floor this week, as the youngest members of our school family encountered their hundredth day of school, and our kindergarteners celebrated Chinese New Year! Upstairs on the second floor, things were a bit more subdued as our middle school students completed their midterm exams! I wish you all a wonderful winter break, and look forward to a full and healthy return on Monday the 26th!
