.In the hopes of stirring up excitement and anticipation for the SCOPE Auction, join us March 19th for a fun evening of food, prizes, and TRIVIA. This event is being hosted by our School Commission. Please encourage friends and family to attend (see attached flyer).
I would like to invite all school families to pray for our Star students receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation this Sunday. These individuals along with other parish confirmands, have been preparing for this amazing day since September. Our own Dr. Clemen has assisted in this preparation as an instructor and long time supporter of our confirmation program. May the Holy Spirit enter the open hearts of the following students: AJ Cunningham, Joey Girard, Geoffrey James, Ben Keller, Jacobe Lacquiao-Lau, Jonah Pantig, James Pizanti, Sophia Powell, Cameron Quebral, Gwyn Rivaldi, Molly Shurtz, Williams Wolfgruber.
Congratulations to the Pugh family (Emilia-5th/Brenna-2nd) for being the winner of our February basket of items centered around the Holy Spirit. Thanks for reading the newsletter!
CATHOLIC LIBERAL EDUCATION IN ACTION
First Graders not only discovered and learned about the solar system but also focused on the Ancient Greek solar system, comparing both Latin and Greek names of the planets.
Just next door, Second Graders completed a novel immersed in the Roman Years which lead to a procession through the halls with crucifixes, rosaries, instruments and artwork in hand. This was customary of a true Christian "Triumph" after victory.
WITNESS OF THE WEEK
In 5th grade Patrick L. was nominated for demonstrating "cheerfulness" while in literature class. As the class carried on a Socratic style discussion regarding their present novel study, Patrick's enthusiasm to share his perceptions and knowledge of details was impressive. This led others to be just as engaged. Thank you, Patrick.

Faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church, we form our students to be virtuous disciples of Jesus Christ and joyful witnesses to the Gospel.
