Thank you for your participation in the weekend masses and the events of Catholic Schools Week. We had a grand time celebrating the best of Catholic Schools and all we endeavor to perpetuate through faith, knowledge and service.
We celebrated the 100th day of school and had some darling senior citizens in our building as the Kindergartners navigated the day with their walkers and canes as 100 year olds! They had it down with gray hair, spectacles, handbags and suspenders. It was a bit unsettling! I felt very young last Thursday!! Our first graders sported some amazing vests as they counted, glued and fashioned the most creative 100s day wear I have seen! The prettiest, most creative and funniest vests were recognized. What a milestone-we're all 100 days smarter!
As a school, grades 2-8 participated in a prayer service led by Fr. Eric and Katelyn Stumler to mark the anniversary of the landmark case of Roe v. Wade and the victory in recognizing the sanctity of life. Students will also have the option of designing posters and writing essays to promote the Right to Life message and participate in the recognition given by this community-wide contest.
Next Sunday, we will have the NJHS students available in Wagner Hall to help parishioners sign up for Kroger cards. By designating Our Lady as your parish or school, we earn funds for our ministries here. This is an easy process for our tech-savvy students and is a one time sign up allowing Kroger to donate to local schools. It cost you nothing and earns money for Our Lady! Thank you for stopping by Wagner Hall on Feb. 8 for coffee, donuts and your Kroger sign-up.
Dear Our Lady Students,
It's progress report time! How are you doing? I hope you can beam with pride that you are giving your best effort. If you need an extra hand or a new way to have concepts explained, reach out to your teachers or instructional assistants. We want to help and enjoy finding resources that support learning and give you the pratice you need. Our Lady is known for its academic strength! I am proud of each student for using your talents and giving your best effort!
Blessings to you,
Mary Ann Bennett
