Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you enjoyed a great weekend. Congratulations to our football team for doing something no other team has done in the last seven years, win a game on Guthrie’s home field, “The Rock.” Speaking of sports, I want to wish good luck to our volleyball and softball teams which will compete in their respective regional tournaments next week, and to our cross country team who will compete in the Chili Pepper Invitational this Saturday.
Tuesday is “Parent Class Night.” REMEMBER, if you bring an auction item (valued at $50 or more) your name will be entered into a drawing for a $500 tuition credit!! We will gather in the auditorium at 6:30 pm for a few brief comments from Mr. Swink regarding PowerSchool and myself. When finished, you will be dismissed to go to your students first hour class. Through the evening you will have the opportunity to spend 5 minutes in each one of your students classes. Following seventh period, there will be refreshments served in the Commons. Classroom schedules and PowerSchool access information will be available prior to the beginning of our evening, so you will want to arrive a few minutes early. Please keep in mind the purpose of the evening is to introduce you to your students teachers. This is not a time for conferencing. Individual conferences can be set up by contacting your child’s teachers or their level counselor.There will be a limited number of hard copy directories available for purchase following classroom visits. The cost of each is $5.00. We are providing free online access to the school directory through AtoZ Directories app. Information on how to access the app will be available on the itinerary you will receive with your students schedule.
We will be welcoming Matt Fradd to our campus this Thursday. Matt is a young, dynamic Catholic apologist speaker. He possesses an incredible way of connecting with young audiences and the struggles they face growing up as a Catholic Christian in a world filled with obstacles. Thursday’s assembly will begin at 9:45 am and parents are welcome to attend.
Pope Francis has certainly touched all of our heats on his first visit to the United States. Truly a person for others, he leads by example. Turning away from many of the trappings that come natural for a person in his position, Pope Francis has managed to continue to walk among the poor, the sick and those less fortunate. We all talk about walking in Christ’s foot steps, Pope Francis truly “walks the walk!”
I hope you will continue to talk to your students about Pope Francis,his mission of bringing joy, love and genuine care for others to the world. Is this not the roots of our faith?
Finally, we have accepted an invitation from Birth Choice to participate in their Life Walk this Sunday at the Myriad Gardens. We would love to have as many students involved as possible. Students should watch for an email from Mr. Welch for sign up information. Parents are welcome to participate as well. The event begins at the Gardens with sign in at 1:00 pm and the walk beginning at 2:00 pm. Food trucks will be on site during the event.
Have a blessed week!
Yours in Christ,
