Dear Families,

        In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we did not have class on Monday (1/20/20). Instead, I pray that we all continue to work towards a world that is more accepting and inclusive of our actions. One of my favorite things about being in a catholic school is the integration of Catholic Social Teachings and values into our classroom. And this quote sums that up perfectly. It is always the right time to do what is right.

 

          In other news, we are approximately half way through the trimester. Please check Option C/Google Classroom and speak with your child about assignments that are marked as late or missing as well as those that are due soon. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
