“Teach us to give and not count the cost.” St. Ignatius de Loyola
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Next week, Thanksgiving will be upon us and the holiday season begins with a fury. This is a joyous time of year for families and most especially Catholics as we anticipate the coming of our Lord, Jesus. Advent marks a time of reflection and preparation for Chrismas. As we reflect, we should consider those less fortunate than ourselves; those that go hungry, those who are lonely, those who are homeless and those who Christmas is just another day of the year. This week we are looking at the virtue of charity and how we can show it during this season and throughout the year.
Here are some brief reminders:
- Students will be going outside for recess each day that the temperature is 32 degrees or higher and there is no precipitation. Please be sure your child comes to school with outdoor wear that will keep them warm through the coming months.
- Next Wednesday, November 26th is a12 noon dismissal and there is NO AFTER CARE.
- If you require more conference time with a teacher please arrange another date after conferences to continue your discussion. We ask that conferences be held to 10 minutes so that all parents have the opportunity to meet with each teacher.
As always, my door is always open. Please do not hesitate to speak to me. Also, if you would prefer to contact me in writing please be sure to include your name so I can respond to any concerns you may have.
In His Peace,
Mrs. Elena Malinconico
