A Joyous Easter to All!

by Lisa Hirschfeld Email

Dear Parents,

As we sing our triumphant song of joy this Easter may our hearts awaken to a new life in His resurrections.  May we now say ALLELUIA!

Just a few short notes:

On Monday, April 8 we will resurrect the Alleluia banners that were buried on Ash Wednesday. Students should bring in their noisemakers.

The Golf Outing is scheduled for Wednesday, April 24.  Please consider joining us for a round, take an ad or join us for dinner.

The Prince and Princess Tea Family Night is Friday, April 12.

Have a very blessed Easter and much needed rest...

Peace,

Mrs. Lisa Hirschfeld

Dear Parents,

Peace to all of you as we approach the holiest week of the liturgical year!  Please avail yourselves of the activities happening this weekend and next week at St. Therese Church.  The Living Stations will be presented by our Youth Ministry tonight and Sunday night, Holy Thursday mass, Good Friday services, Stations of the Cross and Easter Sunday mass.  We encourage you to participate with your children.

Next week at school we are also preparing for Easter.  On Tuesday, students will be remembering their baptismal promises at morning prayer, led by St. Theresa.  At 9:00AM on Holy Thursday we will host our annual Seder prayer service for all students in grades Kindergarten through grade 8. Remember that we have full days Monday through Wednesday and on Holy Thursday a half day with NO AFTERSCHOOL CARE.  All children should be picked up by noon that day.

On a separate note, on Wednesday at 1:00PM our students will compete in our jump rope competition.

We'd also like to remind you that tomorrow is our Fish & Chips dinner from 5:00-7:00PM in the auditorium.  You can dine in or take out and you may pay at the door if you haven't already gotten your tickets.

Although the temperatures aren't cooperating right now, we know that soon we will be enjoying springtime!  What better way to do so than to get a foursome together for our annual Golf Outing?  The brochure is on our Friday folder so let's get out there and have a great day golfing!

PowerSchool will close today for parents and the 3rd marking period will end next Thursday.  Report cards should be distributed to children the week that we return from Easter vacation.

Remember that school will be closed for Easter vacation from noon on Holy Thursday, March 28 through Sunday, April 7.  We will re-open on Monday, April 8. 

In anticipation of the upcoming Holy Week, I wish you peace during this last journey through Lent.

Peace,

Mrs. Lisa Hirschfeld

Dear Parents,

How many of us are laboring these days?  When will Spring really get here?  WILL it ever get here???  The truth is Spring is already in our hearts.  The promise of a new tomorrow happened this week with the election of our new pope, Pope Francis!  Please pray for him and for the work he is about to do for our church.

Of course, the children were excited and happy when the white smoke appeared atop the chimney of the Sistine Chapel.  In fact, in the first grade, Mrs. Reilly had it streaming on her SmartBoard when the smoke appeared she said, "White smoke, we have a pope!" They all ran to the classroom windows looking for it coming from the church! 

We really know Spring is here because this week the Terra Nova tests were given in grades 1-7.  Make up tests will be given next week and then they'll be packed up and sent back for grading.  Hopefully we will have the results some time in May. 

We have two exciting events happening very soon.  Our annual Fish & Chips dinner, sponsored by the 8th grade, will take place next Saturday, March 23 between 5:00-7:00PM in the auditorium.  Tickets are available and the flyer is on the Friday folder.  It's always a great night out so treat the family to some great food from Argyle's of Kearney!

Our annual John Rackowski Memorial Golf Outing, one of our largest fundraisers, will take place on Wednesday, April 24 at Farmstead Country Club.  It's a great way to herald in Spring so get a foursome together, sponsor a hole, take an ad in the ad journal or join us for dinner!  We'd like this to be our biggest fundraiser of the year so get the word out to family and friends!

Enjoy the weekend and have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Peace,

Mrs. Hirschfeld

Dear Parents,

As we approach the midway mark of Lent we can reflect on the Scripture passage above to remind us of His sacrifice for us.  It is a good time to think about the sacrifices we have each made during this Lenten season.

First and foremost, we have a wonderful surprise for all of our students and parents.  Today we took delivery of a beautiful digital piano for our music classes and concerts. This was a donation from the Favatella family.  Their daughter, Brianna, is in our second grade class.  It is a "top of the line" piano that I know Mrs. Warga is going to love to use and it will certainly enhance our music program and concerts!  We can't thank the Favatellas enough for their generosity and gift to our school!  God bless them!!!

Our students have been diligent in doing things for others during Lent.  Our Armada Blanca Club is busy collecting baby clothing that will be sent to St. Mary's Hospital in Passaic.  Our third graders are making "Duck Tape" pens, pencils, wallets, etc. to raise money for the Dunlow Library.  We are proud of the efforts made in our school that are aligned with social justice issues in our country.

As you know, fundraising is integral in keeping our school viable and healthy.  Tomorrow night is our first-ever Casino Night.  We are so very grateful to all the Casino Night committee members for their hard work and dedication to make this night a huge success.  Thanks to all and God bless each of you.

The next two activities that are coming up are our Family Night Laser Light Show on Friday, March 15. This is a new activity and one which should prove to be exciting and fun.  However, we must have a head count of 50 families in order for us to provide the show. So please have your $15/family fee in by next Friday.

Our next big fundraiser, and one which was rescheduled from the fall, is our annual Golf Outing at Farmstead Country Club, April 23.  Get your foursomes together, take an ad in the ad journal, or just meet us for dinner!  We've had a LONG fall and winter.  Wouldn't it be great to come out for some sunshine and golf to chase away the winter blues???? The brochure is on the Friday folder and encourage you to join us!

Have a wonderful weekend and please take some time this weekend to pray the Stations of the Cross with your children....

Hope to see many of you tomorrow night!

Peace,

Mrs. Hirschfeld
