FROM THE DESK OF MRS. PAPPAS

We look forward to welcoming many of you this evening at Parent-Teacher Conferences. Your timeliness in keeping your appointments is appreciated!

Would a guest to your home know that you are observing Lent? During Advent, folks might see an Advent wreath displayed. Lent is not meant to be showy, but we all need reminders to help us focus. The website below tells how to create a Lenten space at home. It’s simple and powerful. One of the messages we live during Lent is that we need help for we are sinners. Perhaps we need a reminder like this at mid-Lent. Spring break might be the perfect time to create this Lenten space in your home.
