Week of March 18, 2019
"As Lent is the time for greater love, listen to Jesus' thirst...'Repent and believe' Jesus tells us. What are we to repent? Our indifference, our hardness of heart. What are we to believe? Jesus thirsts even now, in your heart and in the poor -- He knows your weakness. He wants only your love, wants only the chance to love you." -- Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
I hope you all had a great week last week and that you spent some quality time with your children.
Just a few reminders for this week:
* Move-a-thon money is due tomorrow, but if you need a few more days to collect the donations, that is fine. Donations can also be made on Cash Online to earn additional raffle tickets. For every $10 collected, your child will receive a raffle ticket to be eligible to win any of the many prizes! We appreciate your ongoing support.
* Robotics C.O.R.E. Club is cancelled for today, Tuesday, March 19 and will resume next Tuesday.
* Sarah Westbrook Motivational Speaker: Please join us on Wednesday, March 20 at 6:30 p.m. for this fantastic free presentation. Sarah will be speaking about ways to help our children and ourselves cope with anxiety in our daily lives. This is such an important information session which will help us refocus on supportive strategies for our families. There will be free child care, door prizes, and light refreshments. Please indicate in your child's agenda, the number of adults who plan to attend. This will help us determine seating and required refreshments. Thank-you to our Catholic School Council for organizing this event.
* Lenten Mass: Please join us on Thursday, March 21 at 12:45 p.m. at SFX Church as we celebrate a Lenten Mass as a school community.
Please refer to the March Calendar for additional events and/or information. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at the school.
Continued blessings and prayers during this Lenten season.
Mr. S. Agro
