Thanksgiving Holiday News!

Dear Parents,

          We cordially invite our families to attend the Thanksgiving Celebration on Monday, November 20th from 9:00-10:00. Please join us for a traditional snack, a sing-a-long and a very moving Native American Naming Ceremony. If a family member is unable to attend the celebration, kindly let me know in advance. We will invite a special guest to celebrate with your child.

          To cultivate the spirit of giving, the Stars will be hosting a food drive! We will discuss how much God loves and provides for us. It is His wish that we take care of each other and help those in need. We will help people who do not have enough food to eat by sharing our food with them! We are very blessed to give from our abundance! You are welcome to send in non-perishable food products and canned goods. The food will be placed in a special basket and will be donated to our Parish food kitchen.  The drive will last throughout the holiday season, so feel free to send in items during the months of November and December.  Thank you, Ms. Pellettiere

Teacher's Prayer
Lord, please help me to strengthen their voices,
bodies and minds,
to express their feelings and to guide them gently,
to explore what's near,
and venture afar, but
most important to love who they are.
