As the season of Lent begins, take time to commit to deepening your faith as a family. Prayer, fasting and giving alms are means of practicing Lent given to us in scripture. Our students will be attending mass with their class on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during Lent. The schedule is listed below.
Today was a great day! Cole Davis from Carson Wentz’s AO1 Foundation visited our school to accept the $1000.00 check raised through the Eighth Grade Solar Food Truck project. This is an example of the interdisciplinary STEAM projects that our school does so well. Channels 3, 6 and 29, and the Daily Local were here to report on the event. So check the news tonight!
