“Wanted: Compassionate Classmate,” reads an enlarged personal ad poster on our Student Council bulletin board. The ad continues with a description, “Kind, considerate and forgiving. Help those in need.” What a great news note to celebrate our March Core Value of the Month, compassion, and to emphasize the opportunities for action and thoughtfulness these days in Lent present to us. Of course, the actions of compassion are not limited to children; so, as your children are talking about their Lenten actions at school share your own, not only with your family, but with the families of your children’s classmates. The Student Council intends to use their bulletin board to fill a pot of compassion coins reflecting our Nazareth community commitment to the Core Value and to Lent. How can you contribute to our pot of compassion gold?
Thank you for your timely response to Registration this week. I enjoyed speaking with many of you and discussing your / your children’s experiences at school this year. If for some reason, you were not able to register this week, please call the office to set up a time when you can meet with Mrs. Horning, Mrs. Barragan or me. If you would like to share with me some thoughts about your experiences this year, I will be glad to set up a time for us to meet. Although we still have several months of learning and experiences in this school year, we are already making plans for the 2014-15 school year.
Next week our Scholastic Book Fair Fiesta! will fill the library. The Scholastic program provides all types of books, gadgets, posters and other fun “stuff” to promote lifelong reading among all of us. Check out the library and start collecting some books for Easter and summer vacation reading enjoyment. Thank you to Mrs. Smyth and her team of volunteers for organizing this opportunity for our community.
Blessings to you and your family,
Dr. Colleen Mauricio
