This year the theme for Catholic Schools’ Week in “Learn, Serve, Lead, Succeed.” We would like to show our children that service to others is part of our Catholic faith. This year we have chosen Ronald McDonald House as our service project. RMH provides temporary housing for pediatric patients and their families in a strong, supportive and caring environment.
On Friday, January 10th, we held a Pep Rally to start off our student portion of the fundraising drive. The children saw a short video about RMH (below), and heard a very emotional presentation from Mrs. Mauceli, our first grade teacher, whose family has experienced first hand the love and support provided by RMH.

Each year as we celebrate Christmas, we remember the wonderful people in our lives that make each day truly meaningful for all of us. Your beautiful children are the reason why we do our work. They bring us great joy and remind us daily of the wonders of the Christ-child. Their smiles, their excitement, and their promise of a hope-filled future enrich our lives and brighten our spirits.

We thank you for sharing the most precious gift of your children with us.

In this way, students can understand their learning goals, recognize their own skill level in relation to the goals, and take responsibility for reaching the goals. By involving students in their own success, they become a more active partner in their learning.” (Educational Leadership, Vol.63, No. 3). Continue reading “December 2019 News & Calendar”→
