From the Desk of Mrs. Wolfe
Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea School Families,
We have now entered into our Lenten experience, and our students will be learning about the importance of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Please take advantage of referring to the Lenten calendar that was sent home earlier this week to get ideas about how to reinforce Lenten practice at home. This is a great resource!
Thank you to all our student speakers recently at St. Gabriel parish in Pt. Orchard - Marley K., Paige T., Freddy and Max T! They were awesome representatives of our school and were great ambassadors for us!
Congratulations to our newest "Witness of the Week," Marley K. She was nominated by a teacher for demonstrating the virtue of "Respect." She waited to hold the door open for the teacher when coming into the building. Way to go, Marley!
Next Friday, Mar. 15, our teachers will be meeting with the teachers from Queen of Angels and St. Cecilia Schools for our annual "Regional Curriculum Day." The focus of the day will be on teaching writing, at all grade levels, and designing scoring rubrics that will give teachers common criteria to use when assessing student writing. We will also gather what we call "anchor papers," that are useful when showing student examples of writing that exhibit the criteria. (Papers do not have students names on them, in case you are wondering.)
**START DATE FOR THE 2019-20 SCHOOL YEAR HAS BEEN MOVED FROM AUG. 27 to SEPT. 4, 2019 (based on recent survey results).
