  " As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, 'Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Look, there is the place they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him, just as he told you.'"

From Mrs. Rowley       
We are so grateful to our 8 th grade students for their beautiful portrayal of the Passion of Jesus in the Living Stations on Monday. It was a moving experience to see.
Congratulations to all of our students who participated in the annual Diocesan Science Fair. They represented our school admirably. A special congratulations to 8 th grader Bethel Girma who earned 2 nd place in the category of "Medicine and Health."
Tomorrow morning our oldest students (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.
Our school office will be closed at noon on Holy Thursday and will reopen after Easter break on Monday, April 29. Extended Day will be offered on Holy Thursday but will close at 3:00 pm.
I wish you all a wonderful and safe Easter break, and blessings of the season.
O Lord, 
Risen, alive and full of grace.
You paid such a price that we may live in freedom today.
We worship your holy name and give thanks for your redeeming grace.

Sleep and Education

Preschoolers sleep about 11 to 12 hours per night. Those who get enough rest at night may no longer need a daytime nap. Instead, they may benefit from some quiet time in the afternoon.
Most nursery schools and kindergartens have quiet periods when the children lie on mats or just rest. As children give up their naps, they may go to bed at night earlier than they did as toddlers.
School-Age Children and Preteens
School-age children need 10 to 11 hours of sleep a night. Bedtime problems can start at this age for a variety of reasons. Homework, sports and after-school activities, computers, TVs, mobile devices, and hectic family schedules all can contribute to children not getting the sleep they need.
Sleep-deprived children can become hyper or irritable, and may have a hard time paying attention in school.
It's still important to have a consistent bedtime, especially on school nights. Leave enough technology-free time before bed to allow your child to unwind before lights-out. A good rule of thumb is switching off the electronics at least an hour before bed and keeping TVs, computers, and mobile devices out of children bedrooms.
