Lenten Updates




FOURTH GRADE PARENTS – I sent a letter home on Friday, Feb. 9, regarding the Recorder Karate lessons your students will be starting soon in music class. I also listed the final date for the $5 payment as Wednesday, Feb. 21.

I will be at the school during conference time on Tuesday (2/20) if any of your students have not paid yet. Your student may also bring the money to class on the 21st.



During Lent, I plan to take a closer look at some church / Christian music that’s a little softer and more reflective so as to help the students find the mindset of “preparation and waiting” for Easter celebrations. Some students have expressed that this music "isn't as fun" as the rest of the liturgical year, and others have been receptive to the change. I hope you will join me in praying that the true meaning of Lent and waiting for the joy of Easter will touch the students' hearts - especially those students who find this liturgical season "boring" and "not as fun."

The softer, more reflective mood will transfer over to the music sung at student masses. Learning these newer songs is a large part of music class. Both fifth and sixth grade students help lead music every Wednesday and Friday, when the student mass starts at 8:15 a.m. Everyone is welcome.
