Evening is coming earlier now! Each season reveals God’s splendor in a new way.
At our Prayer Assembly on Monday, Ms. Mullin read from Luke 18 the story of the blind man begging. He called out to Jesus to have pity on him and Jesus listened even though the others he was with ignored the blind man. Jesus said, “Have sight; your faith has saved you.” In the reflection Ms. Mullin read, we were reminded that our faith strengthens when we help others who are struggling and our whole community grows stronger. Last week we took Friday off to celebrate Veterans Day. Veterans in our community are people who took time in their lives to help others. We are grateful for the work they do to make this world a more peaceful place.
We are approaching the end of our first trimester of learning–next Wednesday, November 23. And after Thanksgiving we will begin our daily celebration of Advent with the lighting of the Advent candles and singing the Advent song every morning in the gym. We will continue with our Friday morning Masses and welcome all who would like to attend.
As many of you know, our third grade teacher Mrs. Meneses will be going on maternity leave starting right after Thanksgiving. We wish her the very best and send all our prayers with her as she takes time off from school through the end of the year. We are very excited to have Mrs. Maureen Mastrobattista as the third grade long term sub. She comes to us with years of experience both here and in other educational settings. We are so grateful to have her.
We are looking forward to the return of Mrs. Melissa Scheller after her maternity leave with little girl Marlee. She returns right after Thanksgiving. We have been so fortunate to have Mr. Mark Thorrington serving as her capable long term sub. All our gratitude.
- To our volunteers! Thank you to all the volunteers who are helping in so many ways in the school building. As I walk through the school building, I have seen you helping with class parties, projects and with small group teaching among other things. You build our community and make our school a better place.
- For your prayers for Mr. Rosado: I had a phone visit with Mr. Rosado on Sunday and he wanted me to express to you his gratitude for your prayers and support. He has appreciated the cards the students made for him. He would appreciate your continued prayers.
