FROM THE DESK OF MS. BRESLER...                                 
Dear Parents,
   
     Our Morning Prayer this week was made even more special by the presence of veterans from our parish and school families.  Fr. Alex talked about how we must be grateful to God for all his blessings.  However, if we accept God's blessings, we also need to be able to accept the hard times, and still be able to praise God through our suffering, like Job in the reading for the day.
     I can only imagine the suffering that some of our veterans endured during their service; hostile terrain, loss of friends, feelings of isolation from home and family, feelings of anxiety and too much change when they returned. If they/we can hold onto God through the suffering, He promises that all will be well. I know, easier said than done...but that is why we have each other to lean on. Sometimes it may be my turn to lean and sometimes it may be my turn to be strong. We must all acknowledge that we can need and be both.
     I want to thank the veterans who were able to be with us yesterday for their service and I want them to know they are valued, and they are not forgotten. I also want to thank the St. Veronica Rosary Club for the gifts of pocket rosaries they made for the veterans, the third-grade teachers and students for the time and effort they put into the program they performed for the veterans and their families and Mrs. Jamie Betz and her daughter, Mrs. Katelyn Stetter, for the delicious and plentiful food served at brunch. It was a wonderful morning and it was made even more so by being together as a school, parish, and Americans.
 
SOCIAL MEDIA INFORMATION NIGHT:
     As we have done in previous years, we have invited the Clermont County prosecutor to speak with both parents and students about the correct use of the internet and the pitfalls that are out there for those just beginning to use the internet.
     The parent talk is tonight at 6:30 in the school cafeteria.  All parents are welcome to come, no reservation required, but we strongly encourage the parents of our older students to come and hear about how to protect their students while using the internet correctly.
     The Clermont County prosecutor will also be speaking to all 6 th, 7 th and 8 th grade students, tomorrow afternoon at 1:45, parents are also able to come to this presentation, though it is geared towards students, not adults.
 
FIRST RECONCILIATION RETREAT:
     This Sunday is the First Reconciliation Retreat for our parish 2 nd graders. It begins at 12:30 with snacks and goes until 3:00. Please keep these little ones in your prayers as they begin their preparation for their first sacrament of healing.
 
CANDY COLLECTION:
     St. Veronica School is organizing their annual collection of Halloween Candy.  If you want to get rid of those leftovers in your house before they make their way to your hips, just drop them off at the school office or in the box in the Narthex marked for the purpose.  You can even have your students go through their candy and donate to the cause.
     All candy received will be used to create Christmas gift packs for students at an inner-city school, and for seniors and shut-ins at an inner-city parish. All remaining candy will be given to a soup kitchen for their patrons. I have sponsored this collection for the past 20 years in whatever school I led because the inner-city school and parish that I speak of, is the school and parish I grew up in. My mother has been in charge of creating the gift bags and my uncle was in charge of the soup kitchen until recently.   Your support of this effort is much appreciated, by me and my family. Thank you in advance for your donations.
   
INCLEMENT WEATHER:
     We are heading towards that time of the year when weather can be a little unpredictable.  Please remember that St. Veronica Parish School follows the West Clermont School District for delays and closings during inclement weather.  If we delay or cancel classes due to weather, parents will receive a phone call, text and email.  We will also post on our website and social media accounts.  
     If your student relies on bus transportation, to or from school, please note that if your home school district is delayed or cancelled, the buses will be too.

BONUS for this session - St. Veronica's 7th graders will be performing a SQUARE DANCE at 6:30 PM in the John XXIII gathering space during our social time. This is part of the Ohio Arts Council grant on Appalachian culture that we won, and should be a lot of fun!

the latest topics of interest to parents, teachers and students. This includes:
