Our school office will be closed at noon on Holy Thursday and will reopen after Easter break on Monday, April 29. Please join us on Monday, April 15 for Living Stations, portrayed by our 8 th grade students. What a wonderful way to begin Holy Week.
 
Next week we have a couple of field trips planned: 2 nd and 3 rd grades will go to the National Zoo on Tuesday, and on Wednesday our 7 th grade class will travel back in time to Gettysburg during the Civil War, led by tour guide extraordinaire, Captain Don Ditko. Please pray for good weather for both those days.
 
On Holy Thursday morning, our oldest students will (grades 5-8) will prepare sandwiches for Martha's Table as a Holy Week service project. Items have been collected for this by the whole school. Please see information below. We are grateful to Our Leadership and Service Team for coordinating this under the direction of Sra. Cummins.
