January 22, 2013

Next week is Catholic School’s Week!  Our theme this year is: “Catholic Schools Raise the Standards.”  With that in mind this is what our week will look like.

  • Monday 1/28, Spirit Day- Students may wear red and white clothing and jeans, or their school uniform.  I will be looking for the class that shows the most school spirit and shows how the Holy Spirit works!  The winners will get a special surprise.
  • Tuesday 1/29- This day both Alek Trukki and his brother Luke will be taking over my administrative duties. Yeah! They have a busy day planned beginning with students wearing their PJs to school! Sweat pants are okay to wear but please no slippers.  They are also requiring all teachers to show a movie in the afternoon.  Students will be allowed to bring pillows, sleeping bags and treats to make this wonderful afternoon even more special.  After a school day like this both the Trukki boys felt that everyone would need to spend a relaxing evening with their families, so there will be no homework on this day.  You will hear more from the Trukki boys next week via the family letter that they will write and send to all of you!
  • Wednesday 1/30- Students will give service to each other and the community at large.  Once again we will make Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches for Catholic Charities. Each class will be responsible for bringing specific items for the lunch.   More information is included with this mailing.
  • Thursday 1/31- Students will spend class time researching Catholic influences in the World.  Each class will give a presentation to the student body Thursday at 1:00pm.
  • Friday 2/1- Community Day- Students will be making thank you messages to the Our Lady of Victory parishioners and our neighbors.
  • Sunday 2/3- Open House from 9:30am to 11:30am.  The parent club board will have some breakfast hospitality available in the All Purpose Room and our students will be making presentations in their classrooms.  At 11:30 we will wrap up open house and prepare for the 12 Mass.  If you are planning to attend Mass please dress your child in their formal uniform.

This will be a great week for all! Go in peace and don’t run in the halls.

The Conversion of Saint Paul Friday January 25
This feast celebrates the day the Christ appeared to St. Paul in a vision as he was on the way to Damascus.  Christ reproached him for his persecutions and converted him to the true faith.
