"There are three things that will endure -- faith, hope, and love -- and the greatest of these is love." Corinthians 13.12
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Faith, hope and love are all foundations of our mission and philosophy at St. Stanislaus Kostka School. We celebrate our faith in God daily through our actions and service to others and to God. We hope our children take each day to grow deeper in their faith and to be challenged academically as they progress through the school year. We love one another by forgiving mistakes, caring for each others’ well being and nurturing each other to grow as Catholic people.
We have had a busy week with a middle school field trip to the Museum of Natural History and a “Stay Trip” for our littlest learners learning all about pumpkins! Next week we will have another assembly about Halloween safety for grades Kindergarten through fifth and we will end the week with our annual Halloween parade and celebrations! A reminder to all parents, for the safety of our children masks cannot be worn for the parade or party, be sure the shoes for your child’s costume allow them to walk the parade route safely and that no “weapons”, “spears”, “pitch forks”, etc. should be sent in that day. Friday will be an out of uniform day (please follow the out of uniform code in the handbook); students will change into their costumes at lunch time. The H.S.A. will provide a pizza lunch for all students. You can join us for the parade at 12:30p.m.
As we look forward to November, we will end our marking period on Friday, November 7th (please regularly check your child’s grades via Power School). Our annual Veterans’ Day program will be Monday, November 10th at 9am; we would love your presence at this event. Each class will be collecting items for Thanksgiving baskets for families in need. Conferences will be held November 20th and 21st and report cards will be distributed at that time.
Each day within our walls our school is filled with exceptional learning as well as faith, hope and love. It is hard to believe we are almost done with one marking period. As always, my door is to each of you open should you have any questions or concerns. You remain in my prayers.
In Faith, Hope and Love,
Mrs. Elena Malinconico, Principal
