From the Desk of Mrs. Wolfe
Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea School Families,
We have entered the season of Advent, the beginning of our liturgical year, and a time of waiting and preparation for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Our students are learning about the virtue of "Patience," this month, and are invited to create some kind of product - a song, a poem, a poster, a collage...whatever they are inspired to do, that illustrates for them the virtue of Patience. Please encourage your child to participate!
Congratulations to last month's winners for the virtue of "Humility;" 1st place went to Molly S, Gr. 4, and 2nd place went to Brandon D and Jonah P, also Gr. 4. Thank you to all students who entered!
We received many entries for the Knights of Columbus poster contest that ended Thursday, Dec. 6, called, "Keep Christ in Christmas." Students in grades K-8 have been creating posters for this contest for several weeks now, and our Knights will award a cash prize to the winner in each of the 3 divisions - gr. K-2, gr. 3-5, and gr. 6-8. Judging will occur on Sunday, Dec. 16, with winners announced soon after that.
We have several "Witnesses of the Week," to recognize! Ainsley G and John B (Gr. 1) were recognized for their virtue of empathy when they comforted a classmate who came to school upset (nominated by an OLSOS parent); Devlin A (gr. 6) was recognized by Mrs. Eckert for demonstrating the virtue of charity when he cleaned up someone else's mess in the lunchroom without being asked; and Grace G was recognized by Mrs. Powell for the virtue of studiousness when she tried hard, and was careful and serious about getting help. We are so proud of all of our Witnesses!!
