Weekly Wrap Up

Posted by Dawn Lorenz on 3/1/2019

Dear OLV Preschool Family,

February has been an exciting month at our preschool! This week we celebrated Read Across America Week and enjoyed Dr. Seuss books with our guest readers from OLVCS and OLV Parish. We also got to meet some of the hygienists from Pediatric Dental Care for Dental Health Month! AND because Lent begins next week, today we hid our "Alleluias" in a box to open when Easter comes again. 
 
I pray you have a wonderful, safe spring break with your family--whether you are travels take you near or far, here or there, or anywhere.
 
Blessings,
Dawn

Lenten Service Project

Today our classes "buried their Alleluia" in preparation for our upcoming Lenten season. Lent begins next Wednesday, March 6th. This year we will work with Fr. Antony to bring in money for school improvement projects at Roman Catholic Primary School in Fr. Antony’s home, Tirunveli, India. Children will be encouraged to learn about the Beatitudes and earn money for acts of kindness for the school. Donations will help create educational resources that are needed. Additionally, Mr. Chris has donated a Tumblebus party to the class that brings in the most coins for kindness for the project.
