Week of March 6 - 10

 Hello Grade One Families!

 Only one week until Spring Break! It is snowing at our house right now, but the calendar assures us that spring is just around the corner! As Msgr. Luterbach explained to the students on Ash Wednesday, the word "Lent" actually means springtime so we are excited to see our world wake up and shake off its winter sleep soon!

 This is the first full week of Lent. We invite everyone to join us at 8:15am Mass. It was wonderful to see some Grade One students at Mass last week. Thank-you for making the effort to be at school a bit earlier! In the classroom we have been learning that the forty days of Lent are a time of changing our hearts to be more like Jesus. This week we will focus on prayer as a way of drawing us closer to the Lord. 

 Please note the following for this week:

 Monday March 6

  • PE class
  • Fukuroku hot lunch for those who ordered
