What a week this has been! The decision to reschedule events for Catholic Schools Week seems to have been a wise one! All of the activities on the flyer scheduled for this week will be held next week on the same corresponding days so please note the various events and clothing attire for each day. The State of the School will be presented on Tuesday evening at 7:00 in the school hall. Krispy Kreme doughnuts will be ready for pick up on Thursday after 12:00.
When it is imperative that we get a message to parents as soon as possible, we often use School Messenger. Every family receives the message via phone call from OLG. When the call is placed, there is a brief waiting time. Please do not hang up and call the school. Instead please wait to listen for the message. Thank you.
Tomorrow morning a special event in the lives of second grade students will occur. They will receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. We rejoice with them and their parents as the children encounter the love, mercy and forgiveness of Jesus for the first time. We thank Ms. Cartagena and the parents of these students for helping to prepare the children for the reception of this beautiful sacrament.
On Thursday evening, February 28, our second Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences will be held. These conferences are not mandatory, as are the ones in November. However, these conferences provide you with an opportunity to discuss your children's progress with your children's teachers. If you would like to schedule a conference, a request form is being sent home with this parent letter today.
The monthly meeting of Grace's Proud Parents will be held on Wednesday evening at 7:00 in Room 103.
If you are interested in attending the Mother/Son and Dad/Daughter Dance, tickets must be purchased by Monday. The dance is scheduled for Saturday,. February 9, from 6:00-9:00 Pm. No tickets will be sold at the door.
Last Sunday we left Jesus proclaiming Scripture in HIs hometown. The story continues in Sunday's Gospel as we learn how the congregation reacts to his announcement that He is the fulfillment of Isaiah's promise.
At first, Jesus' neighbors are very proud of the hometown boy. However, they are more interested in the honor and fame that Jesus can bring their town than in the word of God He proclaims. When they learn that Jesus' mission is to preach the good news far and wide , not exclusively to them, they fly into a rage and even try to kill him.
COME TO MASS ON SUNDAY TO HEAR THE WORD OF GOD PROCLAIMED.
