From the Desk of Mrs. Wolfe
Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea School Families,
Can it really be March already? Unbelievable! As the saying goes, “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb;” we shall see!
Several of our classes have field trips coming up this next week – our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will be attending the “Gravity Catastrophe” science presentation down at the Admiral Theater – I can’t wait to hear about it! And our 1st and 2nd graders will visit the Museum of Glass in Tacoma on Thursday and get to observe glassblowers at work! Also on Thursday, our 5th graders will be going “On Retreat,” with Sister Daniela, our missionaries Gabby and Patrick, Fr. Lappe, and some other special guests. They will spend the day over at our own JPII Center that day, and have the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation as well as participate in several fun activities. Please keep these students in your prayers for the trips and the retreat.
Last month our Virtue of the Month was Honesty, and we had some amazing poster entries! It was hard to pick winners, but here they are: Marleigh O (Div. gr. 3-5) and Elias H (Div. gr. K-2).
Do you ever ask your child, “How was school today?” and get this for an answer? “Fine.” You might want to give these questions a try for a better picture of your child’s day:
