It's wonderful to watch our students grow in their faith and be part of our Catholic traditions. Today students participated in an Ash Wednesday Mass and received ashes which symbolize the dust from which God made us and mark the beginning of Lent. "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return."
Ash Wednesday Reminder: Students may wear their regular uniform on Ash Wednesday (2/22) as we will be live-streaming mass from our classrooms. NO PE uniforms on that day as there will be no PE classes on Ash Wednesday. Remember, we have 11:00 am dismissal that day. Daycare will be open until 6:00 pm. The cafeteria will be closed so students staying in daycare should bring their own lunch. Thank you for your cooperation.
