Scavenger Hunt for the Hungry
The Scavenger Hunt for the Hungry started this week. Students are being asked to collect various goods through donations from family, friends, neighbors, and stores. In doing so, not only will they gather necessary items for the neediest members of our community, but they will also raise awareness about hunger in our society. Students will have until November 14, to turn in their completed Scavenger Hunt items. We need to collect 2,000 items to reach our goal. Help us to achieve this goal. Collected items will be deliver to Catholic Charities Food Pantry on Friday, November 21st.
Month of the Rosary
Each October, we celebrate the beauty of the rosary. At different points in the year, we speak to the students about how to pray the rosary, including the different mysteries and the prayers included. A great family activity during the month of October could be to pray the rosary together as a family.
Fire Prevention Week
October 3–9 is Fire Prevention Week. The Cicero Fire Department visited the school on Friday, Oct 9 to talk to the students in PK-2nd grade about the importance of fire safety. Please check the batteries in your smoke alarms at home.
We had a very successful opening of school. Students and staff were eager to start the new year. It has been wonderful to see familiar faces in addition to the many new ones that have joined us this school year. We look forward to watching the spiritual and academic growth of the students in the months ahead.
