Welcome to February and the second half of our school year. The Lenten Season begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14th. The Ash Wednesday liturgy will take place in our school gym at 2:30 pm. All parents are welcome to join us. This six week preparation period for Easter provides parents with a wonderful opportunity to pass on their faith to their children. Traditionally, Lent has been a time for the practices of prayer, fasting and alms-giving. The church doesn't require children younger than 14 to fast. However, it does encourage even young children to pray and give alms to the less fortunate.
February break will soon be upon us. It is important to check with your child or children to ensure that they have all of their work completed. The support you provide to your children and their teachers is very much appreciated as it adds to the success our students have. There is no school on Monday, February 19th (Family Day) and the remainder of the week, Tuesday, February 20-23 (February/Winter Holiday). School resumes on February 26th. Enjoy the break.
Mrs. Jamie Neigum
