From the Desk of Mrs. Wolfe
Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea School Families,
What a great week we have had celebrating Catholic Schools Week! This year we added a new activity to the week, and called it, "Get Up and Move Day!" on Tuesday. Each hour we played a song via the intercom for the children to get up and dance to for a couple of minutes, and it was very well received! After school that day, students were asking me if we could do that every day!
We also held a Food Drive and a New Sock Drive this week to benefit St. Vincent de Paul. We collected the socks at Mass on Friday, and we will load all the food into the bus early next week and deliver the socks and the food to "St. Vinney's." Thanks to our students and families for supporting these service projects.
Just before our Spelling Bee on Friday, we had a visit from our local Fire and Police Departments, and were able to present them with "Break Baskets" full of various kinds of snack food, and letters of thanks for their contributions to our safety from our students. I think the officers and firefighters will enjoy reading the notes from the children--I know I did!
Thank you to all our student readers last weekend--Stausch B, Hazel D., Taylor F., Zachary G. Abigail K., Cameron Q. and Susan S. I received many compliments from parishioners who were very impressed with how well they read, and I was certainly proud of them too! All our students who served, brought up the gifts, sang in the choir, and helped with the Pancake Breakfast represented our school well, so thank you very much! Thanks also to Pat and Todd Taylor for taking charge of the breakfast--it was delicious!
