I hope that you had a nice weekend. This week there are several exciting events planned; on Monday we celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday with Dr. Seuss activities, stories and a classroom visit from a very special cat! On Tuesday we celebrate Mardi Gras in school with a morning prayer service, sweet treat with lunch and a parade/music around the school. It is also a day on online giving to support HSA. All students, faculty and staff will meet in the gym to thank all donors “live”. On Ash Wednesday we will attend morning mass to begin the Lenten Season. On Thursday afternoon we will celebrate national day of Reading by reading as a school for 30 minutes! Due to of these fun plans our normal routing will be adjusted and many lessons will carry over into next week. God bless!
