Spend less. Exercise more.
Sound familiar? This is the month of the resolution made so
fervently, and broken so easily. Maybe we should think about
resolutions which, even if we’re not faithful to them daily,
still have a positive effect in our lives. Listen. Reflect.
Trust. Pray. Daily doses would definitely be better for us,
but even if we do these things with a little more intensity and
a little more frequency, the subtle changes will come about
gradually. Before we know it, we will be made over into God’s
likeness. Isn’t that a better image than just a few pounds
leaner? Happy New Year!
expect to hear a lot about our Walk to Jerusalem project over
the next two months leading up to Easter. During the month of
January, we will walk from Fair Lawn to Morocco and from Morocco
to Algeria. The distance covered this month will be 4,265
miles. We will plot our course on large wall maps in our school
foyer and in the back of our church. Stay tuned to the parish
bulletin for facts we learn about these countries and cultures
as we travel to Jerusalem in time for Easter. You are urged to
participate as a family by exercising and walking together.
Every twenty minutes counts as one mile. Ask your children
about the scripture passage we will reflect on each week as we
walk. Including the family in this project will no doubt yield
some fascinating facts and some time well spent together.
This year, we
have been having several problems with our current tuition
management company, SMART. We have tried repeatedly to correct
these issues, but have not had them resolved to our
satisfaction. If you have experienced any problems or if you
have any concerns about your tuition account please call Mrs.
Savacool in the school office to report them. We will be
switching to a new tuition management company next year. This
year, we especially need all tuition payments to be made in full
and on time. When registration is held in the next few months,
new forms may or may not be available. Parents will know the
new tuition amount, but forms may need to be sent home later in
the spring. As always, we appreciate your cooperation as we
move through this transition.
Schools Week 2008 is coming! Be on the lookout for our special
calendar of events for this week. Mark your calendar now so you
can plan to join us for the opening mass on Sunday, January 27,
at 9:00 a.m. After mass, there will be an open house for
prospective families. Classrooms will be open, books will be
available for examination, curriculum outlines will be on hand
for information about our course of study, and teachers will be
in the hallways to answer questions and conduct tours. A
continental breakfast will also be available in our cafeteria
courtesy of our PTG. Please tell any potential families to
“come and see”! Another open house will be held on Thursday,
January 31, while classes are in session. Many more surprises
are planned for that week. Watch for the calendar!
cold days, please be sure your children are in their complete
uniform every day. Girls may wear navy blue tights under their
uniforms, and navy blue cardigan sweaters are available at Co-Ed
Uniform Company for children who are chilly in school. Our gym
uniform consists of navy blue sweat clothing with no imprint
other than our school logo. Students who wear clothing with
other imprints are out of uniform. Nail polish and make-up are
not permitted. Jewelry other than religious jewelry is not
permitted. Girls’ uniforms must be knee-length. Children grow
quickly. If new items are warranted, our uniform provider has
these items in stock year-round. Your cooperation in helping us
enforce our dress code is most appreciated.
