Week of January 4, 5 and 6 Announcements

A New Year’s Prayer

May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.

The monthly calendar will be distributed
on Wednesday January 4th - Opening Day of School.
Please read the calendar carefully as it has
a number of announcements concerning:
1. Mid-Year Exams
2. Weekly Vocabulary Words
3. Common Core Standards

Survey Information Needed
Dear Parents,

Our school is participating in the
University of Notre Dame’s Catholic School Advantage Campaign.
An important element of that program is gathering feedback
from parents on their experiences with the school.
For that reason, we have created a brief survey
to provide an opportunity for you to share your opinions.
Please take a moment to complete the survey and participate
in the process of strengthening and energizing our school!

You can access the survey in English or Spanish through the following link:

Please complete the survey before January 19, 2012.
Only one person in each household needs to complete the survey.
