From the Desk of Mrs. Wolfe
Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea School Families,
I am very excited to share with you that we are going to have our First Annual Faith Rally here at our school on Friday, May 11! Sister Maria Caeli and the missionaries are planning a very special morning beginning with school Mass and ending with a very special concert here in our gym! The students will spend time working on various service projects, having time for adoration, and an activity time between Mass and the concert, and we are hoping many of you will be able to attend the concert with your child(ren). I will have more specific times for you as we get closer to the event, but please mark the day on your calendars now!
We enjoyed a super fun Robotics Assembly Thursday put on by The Bureau of Lectures! The children and teachers were wowed by a variety of robots, from the very simple to the very complex, and even got to participate! Mr. Kealy and Mr. Fletcher’s Tug-of-War teams were no match for the electromagnetic forces they were trying to pull apart however!
Beginning on March 23, and once a month after that, I will be hosting a “Coffee with the Principal” event after our Friday Mass. This month I am inviting parents of our current 6-8 grade students, but the gathering is certainly open to anyone who might want to attend. If you are interested, can you please either email me or call our school office to R.S.V.P.? Since this will be our first gathering, I’d like to know how many goodies to buy!
