We are off to a great start in the “Whooos Reading” program! Please check with your child to see if they are logging in their minutes properly or if there are any ‘computer glitches.’ Although I’m excited to see how much the students are reading, please don’t let them read too late into the night.
We have a 4 day week this week. So, we will have the weekly Spelling Test on Thursday rather than Friday. Please help them study these words; both the spelling and vocabulary.
I would like to start a novena to St. Joseph on March 10 in preparation for his Feast Day on March 19th. Since this is the ‘year of St. Joseph’ (as declared by Pope Francis) and St. Joseph is such a powerful intercessor, I think it would be a good idea to ask for his help in our community, city, state, country and world. We all could use his fatherly intercession. I would like to have a ‘party’ on St. Joseph’s Day (and yes, all Lenten penances are ‘dispensed’ since it is a Solemnity)! In other countries in the world (especially Italy), this is a very big deal! People prepare a lot of delicious food and some dress in red; kind of like dressing in green for St. Patrick’s Day. You don’t have to dress in red, but I would like to ‘celebrate’ it! I’ll be telling the kids about St. Joseph and how some of the saints had a tremendous devotion to him. St. Joseph, Pray for Us!
Please continue to read to your child and have them read to you. It really is helpful. 🙂 Also, please continue to check your child’s planner. If you have any questions about it, please let me know. Thank you.Powerschool
