Dear St. Thomas Families,
 
Spring is finally here and with it there are blossoms on the trees, colorful flowers, and the end of the cold days soon.  However, what makes the Greater Cincinnati area unique is the multiple seasons in one day!
 
St. Thomas students on the 4th week of Lent , will lead the "tolerant" practice on our way to the cross. Let us be patient and acceptable of others by not putting someone down for their faults and differences.

Through the Serra Club of Northern Kentucky, Fr. David Ludwig recognized the 7th grade servers after the all school mass on Friday, March 22.
 
A letter with **Important Tuition Information** is located in the Wednesday folder. Please take the time to read the letter and if there are any questions, please feel free to contact me through the school office.
 
As a friendly reminder, submitting your student(s) registration form allows us to strategically plan for the 2019-2020 school year. The registration form can be located on the school website: www.sttschool.org or by calling the school office at 859-572-4641.
 
Students are wrapping up IOWA standardized tests on Friday, March 29th. Beginning, Tuesday, April 2nd through Friday, April 12, the 3rd, i-Ready Reading diagnostic will be administered to students in grades K-8.
 
Lifetouch will be taking the various school club group photos on Monday, April 1st. Students can bring to school and change into their group(s) t-shirt, which can be worn with their school pants/skirts. The "spring" photos are scheduled to be taken Wednesday, April 10th. A flyer with details about the spring photos is being sent home with your student today.  
Kindergarteners are participating in a Reading Club that encourages students to read or be read to for 1000 minutes.  Students Joey Paolucci and Daniel Tenhundfeld reached their goal this week!  Keep up the great work kindergarten!
 
The 4th graders had the opportunity to incubate eggs for 20 days in their classroom with the help of 4-H Club.  They had 12 out of 16 eggs hatch!  The students even got to see some of the eggs hatch.  It has been a great experience!  
 
Best of luck to Jill Bricking (8th grade), who will participate in the State Geography Bee on Friday, March 29th in Bowling Green, KY
 
 
St. John's Passion Play will begin on April 6th. "The Passion makes every effort to add authenticity so as to create a greater spiritual impact, according to the Scripture of John 3:16."  For reservations or more information, call 859-392-0129 or visit their website for the performance dates and times at ww.stjohnpassionplay.org.    A great production.
