Wednesday, March 1st:  8:30 Ash Wednesday Mass. Mass uniforms should be worn.



Please assist your child in selecting appropriate books to read each night for at least 20 minutes. These can be chapter books, picture books, magazine articles, stories from our Journeys reader, reading with/to a family member, etc… The best way children learn to read is by READING, so every little bit counts! Reading books for enjoyment will help develop a love of reading, a greater vocabulary, and improve comprehension. Reading logs are to be filled out, completed, and turned in EVERY FRIDAY signed by a parent or guardian.

*Flat Stanley envelops were addressed and sent home with each student on Monday 12/12, ready to be mailed. We look forward to hearing back from our Host Families around the world very soon!
