Christmas Greetings,

The students continue to learn about the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. The fourth Joyful Mystery is The Presentation and Obedience is the fruit of the mystery. Mary presented Jesus at the temple in Jerusalem, dedicating him to God according to the Jewish custom. As she did so, a man named Simeon said something astounding, “Now, Master, you may let your servant go in peace, for my eyes have seen your salvation.” (Luke 2: 29-30) 

The Fruit of the Mystery, Obedience; Mary and Joseph humbly brought Jesus to the temple in accord with Jewish law.  Obedience to God and to others can be very difficult but it offers us the opportunity to quell our own will to that of our heavenly Father.  Not my will, but God’s will be done.

When we meditate on the Fourth Joyful Mystery let us remember Simeon and how his faith and patience was ultimately rewarded. We must pray for those who have fallen on the long and difficult road of faith that they get back up and have the strength to live as Jesus calls them. Remember, God has a plan for each of us and that plan will ultimately lead us to His heavenly kingdom. We just need to allow the Holy Spirit to guide us, especially in those times when it feels like God is the most distant from us. It is those times of great hardship when Jesus presents Himself to us although it may not be in the way we expect, or we may not be listening. Remember in your prayers to not only speak to the Lord, but also allow Him to respond for He will show you the way to Him.

May the Peace and Blessings of Christmas be yours


May the coming year be filled with happiness.

Merry Christmas!

Weather Watch and Dressing for the Cold Weather

Winter is upon us and it’s important to properly dress for the conditions. Coats, hats and gloves/mittens are a must for students and adults to be outside especially when the temperatures dip below freezing. Remember that the wind-chill also affects the temperature. For example, although it maybe 20 degrees outside, if the wind speed is 10mph, it will feel like 9 degrees out! Not covering up exposed skin can lead to frostbite. Frostbite is an injury to the skin and the underlying layers of the skin that are exposed to temperatures below freezing. The most common areas at risk are the fingers, toes, nose, ears, cheeks and chin.

There are three different stages of frost bite:

1. Frost nip. A mild form of frost bite that causes the skin to pale or turn red and the skin will feel very cold. If the skin continues to be exposed, if will begin to feel prickly and numb. When the skin is warmed, it may be painful. During this stage the skin is not permanently damaged.

2. Superficial frostbite. The skin appears red and turns white or pale. If you warm up the skin during this stage, the surface of the skin can turn blue or purple. Sensations such as stinging, burning and swelling can occur during the rewarming of the skin. Even some blisters can form during this stage.

3. Severe (deep)frostbite. As frostbite progresses, it affects all layers of the skin. Numbness, loss of all sensations to the cold and pain usually occur. Large blisters form 24 to 48 hours after rewarming and these blisters then turn black and hard resulting in tissue death.

Wearing layers allows us to adjust to varying temperatures when going from the outdoors to inside and will help to keep us comfortable all day long. So protect yourself and your family by covering up any bare skin during the cold temperatures

 Medication Policy


Dear Parents/Guardians,

No medication should be brought into the school without a doctor’s order. It MUST be dropped off by the parent to the Nurse’s office.


Any medication be it prescription, over the counter, vitamins, probiotics, cough syrup etc., must have an order from the Doctor. I cannot administer, nor should the teacher as we are liable.


Parents can call Mrs. Spina and come in to administer a medication if an order is not acquired.


Cough drops should be dropped off to my office with a parent permission note and no child should be self-administering cough drops without adult supervision because of the risk of choking.


Thank you for your attention to this matter.
