The turkey leftovers are
gone, the leaves have dropped and the temperature has begun
its long descent into winter. I hope your Thanksgiving was
as wonderful as mine, for we all have much thanks to give.
The Almighty has done great things for us and holy is His
name. Now is the time to push forward and finish strongly
before Christmas Break. Don’t forget that ADVENT is our
time of preparation for the wonder of Christ Among Us.
A big THANK YOU to all
parents who came to Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences last
week. I hope your experience was pleasant and beneficial
for your child(ren). They were two long days and nights,

We welcome back MRS. HUENEMAN
(Grades 6-8)and Mrs.” MISS RACHEL” Southard (Pre-K), who
were away on maternity leave. It is always nice to welcome
teachers back into the building after a long absence. I
want to officially thank MR. BROWN and MRS. BRANIGAN for
stepping in and doing a wonderful job for us.
We have a busy week here at
St. Lawrence—First Reconciliation took place Wednesday
evening, we have our Advent Reconciliations this week, and
the children have been preparing a great deal for our
Christmas Concert next week.
Make sure you ask a SIXTH
GRADE STUDENT about his or her “Wacky Experiment” proposal
in Science class last week. It was an honor to sit in on
the presentations and listen to the great work being done.
I can’t wait for Friday
because we will have our AWARDS PRESENTATIONS and
CONFIRMATION INVESTITURE after 9:00 Mass. If you are
available, come worship with us and then stay for our
Awards. This is a great time to praise and celebrate the
many successes that we have had thus far. I am never short
of amazed at the wonderful things our students accomplish,
one and all.
