I would like to invite you to spend some time with me in the cafeteria on March 12, Monday morning around 7:45 am, after car line. You bring your coffee, or if like me, tea and I’ll bring donuts or some other goodies. I will limit this gathering to 20 parents so that we can all chat comfortably for about an hour. This is your time to talk about the school, how your year is going, your wishes. It is not a “soapbox” time but more of a time to talk of general things. Any grade is welcome. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org You must tell us that you are coming. In the case of more people than spaces, I will gladly schedule another morning.
Next week starts our Pennies for Patients drive to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The saying “every penny counts” is so true for these brave children, men and women who battle cancer. Send your pennies and other loose change you may have around the house, in your car or even what you might find on the ground. 😊 And of course, dollar bills and higher are always accepted.
Last week at our two Open Houses, we had ten new families visit the campus. It was nice to see such interest in the school. If you know anyone who is “shopping around” for a school, steer them this way!
I hope your Lenten journey is going well. I have struggled a few times but picked myself up and kept going. I have enjoyed attending Adoration on Monday with mass and the Divine Mercy Novena. I also make every attempt to attend Adoration on Thursday evening too. (All at St. Jules) It is such a wonderful, quiet time to sit before the Lord.
And don’t forget that on Thursday nights from 6:00-7:00 pm there is adoration for families. Bring your children. Noise is OK.
I hope you have a marvelous week.
