"Throughout our lives, we follow many paths. Some take us exactly where we want to go; others bring us to surprising and unexpected places. Some days we take steps in complete confidence that we are moving in the right directions. At other times we find ourselves going in one direction, but something inside tells us that we are going the wrong way.
Lent is a time to listen to that questioning voice-to look at the paths we are travelling and ask ourselves if we are really going the right way. If we continue this path, will it bring us to where God wants us to be?
...The heart of the Gospel message is repentance and forgiveness. Each year the Church gives us the gift of Lent-filled with rich and vibrant Scripture readings-to help us learn once again how necessary it is to forgive ourselves and others. We will never experience the new life of Easter until we let go of our pride, selfishness and whatever else is keeping us from living fully.
...Know that God is on this Lenten journey with you in prayer and in spirit." (excerpts taken from A Path to Wholeness-Meditations for Lent by Robert R. Bimonte) May you and your families experiences all the graces and blessings that the Lenten Season can give if we just ask.

Students and Teachers will participate in a Writing Workshop on February 8-9. The presenter comes to us through EIRC. Along with the instruction provided by our teachers, students will learn important skills to help them become more proficient writers. This will also help students to learn and discover their own creative talents and how to use them when writing.
St. Jude Hospital- Math-a-thon
Each year during Lent our school participates in the St. Jude Hospital Math-a-thon to raise funds to support this wonderful hospital who help so many children and their families who are suffering with a debilitating disease. We ask all our students K-8 to complete the Math portion but most importantly to have family and friends donation to this cause. This will run during Lent and we ask for all returns no later than March 11, 2016. The information will be sent home with the students soon. Thank you in advance for your support.
