Dear St. Catherine Laboure Families:
It is hard to believe we are almost through the first third of this school year. Time is going
by so fast, yet so exciting. This past month, it was a joy to see the students take part in
several activities.
The month began with our Pre-K blessing of the pets and soon after the lower
elementary students had the opportunity to listen to members of the fire department and
explore the fire trucks on campus. Our 8th graders then lead us with the grandparents’
rosary. We always talk about how important family, focusing more on moms and dads, is
to the health of a child and a school, but we don’t always acknowledge the importance
that the extended family has for a child. It was a blessing to see so many family
members join us for the grandparents’ rosary. Most recently our 8th graders also had an
opportunity to visit for the day at Bishop McDevitt. This was a great experience for them
as they prepare to make their decisions for high school.
Inside the classrooms, there are many wonderful things taking place. The classes have
reading buddies in which older grades are reading to the younger grades. Some classes
prepared rap songs to summarize their learning and presented them to parents. Other
classes are doing amazing science experiments, art projects, and other engaging
activities. There are wonderful things happening inside and outside the classrooms at St.
Catherine Laboure and we look forward to continuing the next two trimesters with as
much activity, engagement, and support.
Mrs. Jodi Reagan
