From The Desk Of Mrs. Powell
Students eased into a more aggressive academic week, discovering each subject with greater focus and content. Hopefully, your student is sharing some of their newly learned knowledge at home, as this is highly encouraged and very consistent with the rhetoric component of our new educational model.
It was a pleasure to observe several classrooms celebrating Our Lady’s birthday on September 8th, through a special craft or discussion. As a whole school, we honored Mary by enjoying a piece of cake at lunch time. We shy away from sweets being brought into Star, so on special occasions we aspire to make it memorable for all (please refer to the handbook in regard to student birthday procedures).
Finally, it has been a delight to see our wonderful school families support and adhere to the new uniform policy of shoe colors. Families quickly adopted this transition, and now it truly enhances the uniform’s overall appearance. Thank you, parents.
In Kindergarten, young science learners discovered dinosaurs within their Cradle of Civilization Year. Sister Mariana’s surplus of dinosaur books is quite impressive along with her collection of high quality dinosaur paintings. She truly knows how to grab their attention.
New and returning parents, please acquaint yourself with The Institute for Catholic Liberal Education’s brochure as they guide us through our 2 year transformation. See attached document.
