Dear St. Catherine Laboure Families,
Happy New Year to you all. It is great to start this new year, especially with such
a beautiful ending to the 2019 calendar year. The month of December was filled
with activities of grace and beauty all of which leave special memories. The first
important event was the 3rd-8th grade confessions. This was a great way to
start of the month of December. The next big event was the school Christmas
program that was wonderfully presented to the community and families. It was
delightful to see the students dressed so festively and perform so soundly in both
voice and instrument. It was touching to see all of the family members that came
out to support their children. Other events that were meaningful and well
executed were the Nativity prayer service put on by the Prek-4 and 5th grade
classes. Also, the PreK 3 had their own Christmas program that was ever
delightful to see.
The PTO worked very hard to prepare fun events for the students to maintain the
spirit of the season. The Christmas Store was well run and had many fun items
for students to view and purchase. Then of course there was Cookies and
Cocoa for grades 3, 4 and 5. It was enjoyable to read a Christmas story to the
students as they rotated around to the various rooms. That was followed by their
consumption of hot delicious cocoa and cookies.
Throughout all of these events and activities, the teachers and students
continued to work diligently on classroom instructions. As we enter into the
month of January and the new year, we look to continue the rigor in the
classroom while also planning and preparing for upcoming events throughout the
rest of the school year. The first of those to be Catholic Schools Week beginning
January 26th with Mass and Open House.
Thank you as always for your dedication and support to the St. Catherine
Laboure School community. May you all have a blessed 2020 year.
Mrs. Jodi Reagan
