"Love always involves responsibility, and love always involves sacrifice. And we do not really love Christ unless we are prepared to face His task and to take up His Cross.”

Dear St. Stan’s Families:
It is a gift that each Friday grades three through eight attend Stations of the Cross. As we follow Jesus’ final journey, I often contemplate the perfect sacrifice Jesus made for each us, and hope our students understand the selfless and amazing act that Christ modeled for each of us. This season of Lent is quickly coming to end next week and it is always our goal that we also model for our students ways to bring themselves closer to Jesus.
As the month March leaves us (hopefully like a lamb) so does our third marking period. The marking period ends tomorrow, March 27th. The parent portal will be closed from 9am tomorrow through Thursday, April 2nd. Report cards will be distributed Wednesday, April 1st and we ask that you join us April 2nd, during opening exercises, for our awards ceremony.
Please take note that next Wednesday April 1st is a FULL day. There will be a 9am Mass prepared by the first grade on that day; please join us for this celebration. Thursday, April 2nd will be a 12noon dismissal with NO Aftercare available. Additionally, there is no snack sale next week. We return from our Easter break on April 13th. Finally, our eighth grade has been busily preparing for the Living Stations of the Cross. This beautiful interpretation will be presented on Thursday, April 2nd at 11am. Please join our students to witness this amazing portrayal.
My prayers always contain the precious families of St. Stanislaus Kostka School, most especially in this the holiest time of our year.
In His Peace,
