“Love is patient, love is kind.” Corinthians 13:4
Dear Parents and Guardians:
As we gear up for our Halloween celebration tomorrow with excitement, it is also time as Catholics to reflect on the Communion of Saints and pray to them to intercede on our behalf in an effort to lead our lives as they led theirs. As we continue to discuss virtues in opening exercises, this week’s virtue focuses on love. Loving God with all our heart and all our soul and our neighbors like ourselves is the greatest of all commandments Jesus gave us. When you walk through the halls of St. Stan’s School the word that most often comes to my mind is love. The love is palpable, which makes it such a happy place to learn. As we set back the clocks this Sunday evening, we will be looking towards a very full November. From report cards to Thanksgiving baskets to Veterans’ Day and conferences, November will be quite full and very busy.
One of the goals, we have set forth as a school community, is marketing our school to the public so that the community knows who we are, the fine education we offer, and the amazing families that make up our community. We are always in search of parents who can lend a hand in the marketing of our school. If you are interested and able to help, we would be so very grateful for your time and expertise. Please send in a note or call to speak to me so we can set our school a top of a hill and not hide it under a basket.
Just a couple of quick reminders; conferences will be held on November 20th and 21st. Conferences will be first come first serve, unless your child’s teacher sends you information asking to set up an appointment. On November 25th class pictures and club pictures will be taken. Finally, the following days are 12 noon dismissals in November 5, 20,21 and 26. aftercare will be available on all of those days EXCEPT November 26th.
In His Peace,
Mrs. Elena Malinconico
