It’s hard to believe that February is here already, January just flew by. It promises to be a busy one. We are about to conclude Catholic Schools Week, a memorable one with all the wonderful activities that we enjoyed. Friday February second is our annual Retreat day as well as Groundhog Day. Will he or won’t he see his shadow? Is it 6 more weeks of winter or an early Spring? Lent begins for us on Ash Wednesday which also happens to be Valentine’s Day this year. Our Mailboxes will be up and ready very soon just awaiting all our Valentines. We will observe Black History this month by preparing individual reports on an important Black individual who has made a significant contribution to our world. We have received our scripts for our Mid Winter plays to recognize our February holidays. We hope to be ready by the end of the month. Mr. Franca will be beginning Recorder lessons for the second and third graders who have signed up. Book Reports for February will be a free choice following our usual method of presentation.
