“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Mahatma Gandhi
February 4, 2016
Dear St. Stan’s Family:
Ghandi has brought into focus what service to others can actually do for our own personal growth. We are able to find ourselves and we are also able to find happiness and joy in this most unexpected of places. Catholic education’s foundation is steeped in service to one another. We are so fortunate that so many of our students realize this, and have taken the opportunity to serve others. They do so through school organizations like Sources of Strength, Student Council and Religion club, to name a few; as well as service to fellow students in need throughout any given day in our school.
We have an opportunity to show other potential students what we are about as a school and a community next Thursday, February 11th. Please invite a friend who might be interested in attending St. Stan’s to spend the day in our midst. We will also be hosting an open house on February 21st from 10am to 12noon; I ask you to spread the word so families can see what a Catholic education consist of here at St. Stan’s.
Just a reminder, that February 12th and 15th there will be no school. Also, Lent begins on February 10, 2016 with Ash Wednesday. We would love you to join us for Mass at 9:00 am that day. Also, mark your calendars and please register for the PSAS tuition assistance seminar here at St.. Stan’s on February 16th from 2pm to 4pm or 6pm to 8pm in our computer lab.
Lastly, our technology fundraiser has enabled us to order an additional 30 Chromebooks as well as a charging cart for our students. This is just the first purchase the generosity of our families and parishioners has afforded us.
In His Peace,
