I have never seen a cricket on the school playground much less in the school building. However, this past week I saw 2 crickets in both of these places; and most of the students saw the one on the playground. The cricket in the school was in the cafeteria when I was dropping off the kids for lunch. Mr. Pietryga also saw it and quickly grabbed it and said it would be for his frogs in his classroom; none of the 4th graders heard him, they had already sat down to eat. Why am I telling you this? Well, we are reading “The Cricket in Times Square” and that’s the first time I saw a cricket on school grounds. What does it means? I don’t know exactly, but I thought it was just another reminder that ‘God is with us’ and is involved in our lives; or at least He wants to be. I’ve read an excerpt from the Diary of St. Faustina and Jesus told her to speak about the things on her heart. St. Faustina replied by saying, ‘Why should I? You already know what is on my mind and in my heart?’ Jesus replied, ‘But I want to hear it from you.’ God does want a relationship with us; and one that can give us meaning, love, worth, and more than we can imagine. God does want to hear from us, even if it is a “little thing”; like a cricket.
I am still signing each student’s planners each day after they have written down all the homework that was assigned that day. Please take a look at your child’s planner.Powerschool
