March has arrived like a lion, as I'm sure our Early Childhood students can tell you! We're hoping for some more lamb-like weather before too long.
Lent has begun with our celebration of Ash Wednesday. Our boys and girls are remembering that Jesus died for our sins, and working on ways to be the best they can be, growing closer to Him every day in this holy season. Every morning, we begin with a thought and a practice for the day, and every class is working on its own project. We have our Mite Boxes, and our students know that they should share their own money, money that they would otherwise use for some treat, with those who have less. We will pray together in the afternoons, we will go to Confession, and classes will attend some weekday Masses. I know that you are helping your children grow in their faith and love for God, too.
This is also a busy month academically. Our own Super Kids are developing early reading and writing skills and learning lots of new words. Every class is working hard to be a good mathematical problem solver. Our scientists are studying everything ~ from the 6th-graders' learning about atoms to the 5th-graders' learning about galaxies, and everyone else's exploring everything in between! Field trips give our young people deeper understanding of the curriculum. We have received a grant giving us the Imagination Suite
software from Tech 4 Learning. Along with a consultant, our 2nd-graders are using a program called Pixie
to create a presentation on "All the Places We Go," the 4th Grade is going to show us about the early colonies in what is now the US, the 5th Grade will use a program called Share
to learn about the American Revolution, and our 7th Grade is writing an amendment to the United States Constitution! Our Ballroom Basix program continues, teaching our 6th and 7th graders grace and coordination, social skills, and an appreciation of many cultures. We know that your support makes it possible for us to deliver our academically excellent program!
Re-registration is ongoing, and Mrs. Taveras is happy to help with scholarship applications. Registration for new students will take place on March 12. Report cards will be distributed on March 19. We look forward to seeing you then!
May you have a blessed Lent,
