From the Desk of Mrs. Wolfe
Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea School Families,
I hope this week has been truly a Holy Week for all of you, and that your Easter celebrations will be blessed as well. On Tuesday our students in gr. 6-8 walked to the Admiral Theater to experience a presentation titled, "Living Voices: La Causa," the story of the daughter of a Mexican migrant worker, and her life-changing involvement in the Farm Workers Movement led by Cesar Chavez in the 1960's and 70's. Then on Friday we experienced the Stations of the Cross as a school, with our 8th grade students doing the readings for each of the stations.
At our morning assembly on Tuesday, April 16, we recognized Finn B. and Mason B. for being "Witnesses of the Week" last week. They were demonstrating the virtue of "Reverence," by sharing the prayer card and participating fully in the Mass.
On Wednesday morning Mr. Mike Slavin, our Grand Knight for our local Knights of Columbus Council attended our morning assembly to announce the winners in last December's "Keep Christ in Christmas," poster contest. Our 3 winners each received a check for $50, and their entries will now move on to the state competition. Our winners are: Priscilla S., gr. 2; Catherine B., gr. 5; and Brooke O., gr. 8.
