" The grass withers, the flower fades;
    but the word of our God will stand for ever."  
-   Isaiah 40:8
September 26th, 2018
From Mrs. Rowley       
We are continuing with Scantron testing this week. Our 5 th grade will spend this week testing. Please keep our students in your prayers during this time.

Most of our after school activities are now in session! We are delighted to be able to offer enrichment and clubs for all interests, from Chess Club to Kolbe's Kids, from CYO sports to band and strings. We also offer drama, poetry, running club, etc.

Please note that we will have a 2:15 pm release this Friday, September 28, to facilitate a faculty meeting. Extended Day will begin early on that day. That is also the day that we are hosting the 7 th /8 th grade dance. Each year four area Catholic schools host a dance and invite the other schools. These include St. Ambrose, Holy Spirit, St. Bernadette and Nativity schools.
Have a blessed week.

40 Days for Life Campaign   
The "40 Days for Life" Campaign begins Sept. 26 and goes through Nov. 4th. You're invited to join other St. Ambrose parishioners to pray for an end to abortion.  Please join us in the public right-of-way outside the Falls Church Healthcare at 900 S. Washington Street, Falls Church on Wed. afternoons from 1-3 PM. 
It has been reported that the number of abortions decrease when people are praying out front of abortion facilities.  There were three women that we know of in August who talked to volunteers and then chose life for their babies!
If you can not join us, please pick up a Devotional Book available in the school office.  This book contains prayers for the babies, their mothers and the conversion of those working in the abortion facility. Thank you. For more information call Donna Hores at 703-354-5280.
National Family Meals Month   
  This month is National Family Meals Month and the Food Marketing Institute has partnered w ith dozens of grocers and community groups, including the American Heart Association to encourage families to eat one more meal together at home (breakfast, lunch OR dinner). Research shows that eating more meals together leads to healthier eating, better grades and less risky behavior.

I accept submissions from teachers, staff, and parents. If you know of something interesting going on in our community, or want to give a shout out to someone at the school, I'd love to add it to the Buzz. I especially love pictures.
