Week of March 4 – 8

Hi Grade Two Families,

I hope you enjoyed the sunshine over the weekend!

We begin the Lenten season this week with Ash Wednesday.  We will explore the ways we can grow closer to Jesus during Lent though prayer, fasting and almsgiving. The children will take home a Lenten calendar that will document their 40 day journey. It will have different activities that they can do each day to grow in their relationship with Jesus.  Please keep the calendar in their agenda pocket so they can fill it out daily. It is the perfect time for the children to get into the habit of daily reflection as their prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Starting on Thursday, March 7, we will attend morning Mass everyday  together as a school community. All students are encouraged to attend Mass. There is a reserved section for the students in the front to sit with the teachers. Mass starts at 8:15 am, so please arrive on time. Parents are welcome to stay for Mass too!
