SCSS NEWSLETTER






Dear Parents,

Today we celebrate All Saints Day. We are all called to be Saints and to live as Jesus did. A Saint is a person recognized by the Church as being holy because of the way he or she lived. A person who is good, kind, patient, and that has all the virtues that are true examples of the Fruits of the Spirit. We strive to be saint like so that we can have true happiness in Heaven some day with our Lord. 

As we live each day, let us remember that it is not the big things that we do but the little things along the the way each day that bring us closer to living saint like lives. 


Quote from Pope Francis:

"The Saints have found the secret to authentic happiness, which lies deep within the soul and has its source in the love of God."

 
Faithfully Yours,

Miss Giaquinto

Nurse News From Mrs. Hogan    
Autumn is a beautiful time of year but as the weather gets cooler outside, head colds, sore throats, fevers and viruses enter homes and school settings.
Please help keep our school community healthy and prevent the spread of illness. If your child is sick, please keep them at home. 

Remember to send your child to school with a warm jacket and other accessories.  These items are needed in order to go outside for recess and for outdoor classes on gym days.
 

Keeping the children warm and healthy is our goal!
