Principal’s Corner #140

Let me be attentive to my God as to a lamp in a dark place.

A Note from Sr. Kathleen

This week our Lenten focus is on light. There are so many beautiful images for light in the scriptures. Find your favorite and linger with it. Be the light that shines for someone this week!

Thank you Student Council for a great Jump for Heart event.

Thank you Fourth Grade for a prayerful presentation of the Stations of the Cross. Thank you parents and coaches for another fabulous Track Meet at Mater Dei Catholic.

This week, our Big Bash Committee, is putting the finishing touches on items for the Big Bash event. There are still many opportunities to volunteer and support the event. If you are able to help, please contact a committee member or school office. We want to make sure everyone who can help is offered an opportunity to make a difference. It takes the efforts of the village at SVS.

Let your beautiful light shine this week.

Sr. Kathleen
