Happy Tuesday! Happy 100th Day of School! It has been an exciting 100 days. We are so grateful for every day with your children. Thank you for sharing your precious gifts with us. 

Our February monthly devotion is the Passion of Our Lord. We focus on the Lord’s Passion in anticipation of the Lenten season that will begin on February 22nd, Ash Wednesday. Keep in mind as you meditate on the suffering and Death of our Lord that this was done so that our sins would be forgiven and we can spend eternity with him in Heaven. 

Tonight, many of our second graders will be receiving their First Reconciliation. Please keep them in your prayers as they begin to practice this wonderful sacrament. 
Safe Driving on Campus
We have been seeing a lot of unsafe driving on campus. Please remember that there are children here. Here are a few rules to remember:
1. Drive 5 mph
2. Park in parking spots only! Do not park in front of rolling gates or white lined areas. 
3. Do not use your cell phone while driving
4. Listen to directions from adults directing traffic
5. On Friday mornings, after 7:50, park and walk your child to the church. 
6. If you are using EDC, you must park and walk your child in so you can sign them in.
7. Do not drop your child off and have them walk through the gate or around the CMO by themselves this is not safe.
8. If your child is late please bring them to the office to get a tardy slip. 
We appreciate your help keeping our kids safe!
