Dear St. Catherine Laboure Families,
It is with great pride and joy that I am able to state that we are almost through the
first trimester of this school year and have not had to shut down nor have we had
any known positive cases of COVID. The students, faculty, and staff have been
doing an amazing job at practicing all the policies and procedures that have been
put in place to keep everyone safe and the school operating in person. While we
are not able to conduct many events, this past month of October, we were able
to recognize our Disciples of the month, conduct our parent/teacher conferences,
collect money for our monthly Mission collections, provide ice cream treats for
the students, and have our classroom Halloween parties. We continue to attend
Mass every week with a third of the school attending in person while the
remaining students are able to watch virtually.
This next month of November, we will end our daylight savings time while we will
begin our winter uniforms. November 13th will not only be the end of our
trimester but will also be an online learning day for our students. Our mission
collection for this month will be to support those in the Philippines. The virtue
that our students are working on during this month of November is Love of God
and Neighbor.
We are blessed to have such an involved PTO and parent volunteers. During
the month of October, our PTO conducted a couple of successful fundraisers as
they had the Chipotle night and the sub sale. They also helped to provide treats
for the teachers and the students during Halloween. Our amazing parent
volunteers have not only helped during the Halloween parties, but have also
given of their time to help provide a break for the teachers during the week.
SCLS teachers, staff, students, and families are doing a wonderful job. We are
blessed and thankful for your continued support and understanding. We will
keep this strength and effort as we move forward into the coming months. We
are full of prayer, patience, and positivity.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of
many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces
perseverance. James 1:2-3
