From the Principal

Nazareth School San Diego, California, USA

Dear Parents:

As I said Wednesday evening, the Arts are definitely alive and well at Nazareth School. Our Art Show demonstrated student achievement in many different media of the visual arts – drawing, painting, collages, mobiles and computer designs. Myriads of color and texture were a visual treat to all who explored not only the products of the children, but observed their growth in skill over the years from Sunflowers to 8th graders. Congratulations to our students who created the art and to their teachers – a special thanks to Ms. Tamkin who provided leadership in instruction and the organization of the Art Show.

In case you were unable to attend the PTG meeting Wednesday evening, there were several important announcements:

Our Auction is a little over a month away, but there is plenty of time to volunteer your efforts! If you would like to support the auction with time or a donation, please contact Mrs. Stephanie Hollister. And just a reminder, ladies, you are encouraged to find that perfect chapeau for the occasion! The hat contest is sure to add to the fun!

The PTG Board is starting to plan for the 2014-15 school year. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Board, please contact Mr. David Pfeifer, our current Board President or me. The role of the PTG Board is an important one in providing leadership for school improvement and staff/teacher support.

Next week, as is our tradition in Holy Week, the 8th grade students will present our last community gathering to pray the Stations of the Cross. The Passion Play depicts Jesus’ journey to the Cross from the point of view of Mary, His mother. Often as we venerate Jesus as God and embrace His gift of assuming humanity, we forget that He was a mother’s child. How fitting it is that in a school dedicated to the Holy Family we pray together relying upon the thoughts and heart of Mary in this holiest week of the Church year. Thank you to the 8th Grade Students and Mrs. Lawler for their leadership in this prayer service.

Blessings to you and your families,

Dr. Colleen Mauricio
