February 19, 2014

Life with your children is fleeting.  One minute you are a sleep deprived parent of a one month old and the next you are helping your child apply for college.  I remember when my children were ages 14, 9 and 4 and I was exhausted.  I wondered: will my life ever be anything other than car pools, school activities and soccer games on Saturday mornings? Now I look at my adult children and wonder how the time could have possibly gone by so fast?  Thank goodness for photos and memories!

The Father and Daughter dance is this Saturday! This is a wonderful event that creates lasting memories.  Over one hundred dads and daughters will be dressing up in their ‘50’s costumes to enjoy a fun filled evening with one another.  Many thanks to Betty Kempen, Amy Hirata, Molly Garcia and the dance committee for organizing and planning the dance!  I can guarantee that this night will be one that parents will remember often and fondly!

If you have not turned in your Letter of Intent to Return, there is still time to do so.  You may also email or call to let us know what your plans for the 2014-2015 school year are.  Also financial aid forms are now available in the school office or on-line at www.fairapp.com.  The school code for applying on-line is 350 and password is dof350.  If you need financial aid for the next school year this is the first step in the financial aid process you will need to complete.

Have a blessed week and enjoy your children!  Go in peace and don’t run in the halls!

Saint Elizabeth of Portugal(1271-1336) St. Eliszabeth was married to King Denis of Portugal.  During this time she set up hospitals, orphanages, and other institutions.  When her husband passed away she devoted her life to prayer and service to the poor.

Volunteers Needed – If you would like the opportunity to work off parent hours, consider helping the Father Daughter Dance Committee.  The committee needs some volunteers to clean-up after the dance.  If you can help please contact the school office.

Pray For: The end of the drought in our state and the return to good health for Monsignor Moreton.  The Ohanian’s, OLV alumni family, as they grieve the loss to their son Kasey.  The Chipp family as they await the birth of their son!

Prayers of the Day Lord, put a fresh wind into my sails.
