Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea School Families,
What a spectacular day we had on All Saints Day!! Our students had practiced their speeches, their costumes were fantastic, and we had many guests here at school to participate in the Living Saints Museum! Our student speakers during Mass got lots of compliments from Fr. Lappe as well. Kudos to Ignatious K (St. Joseph) in Kindergarten; Matthew R (St. George) in Grade 1; Abby S (St. Catherine of Alexandria) in Grade 2; John T (St. Benedict) in Grade 3; Molly S (St. Philomena) in Grade 4; Avari H (St. Jeanne Jurgan) in Grade 5; Cecilia P (St. Agnes of Montepulciano) in Grade 6; Kalia C (St Rita) in Grade 7; and Ella H (St. Gianna Beretta Molia) in Grade 8 for the tremendous job they did speaking about their saints during Mass!
I hope you will be able to join us next Thursday, Nov. 8, at 2:00 p.m. in Camerman Hall for our annual Veteran's Day Assembly. We will feature music from our Choirs and our Bands, interviews with our veterans, and our guest speaker will be Capt. Helen Smith. Our Color Guard will be provided by our parish American Heritage Girls, and our Parents Club will host a small reception immediately following the assembly in Camerman Hall. We love being able to honor our veterans each year in this way!
The following week our SCOPE Auction team will host "A Night at the Races!" in Camerman Hall on Nov. 16. If you came last year, you know how much fun we had, and if you missed last year's event, be sure to come this year. It's a lot of fun, and the proceeds go to benefit our auction.
