Fun things happening during the book fair
The classes will be once again participating in penny wars. So, please send in your loose pennies or change to your child’s teacher. The winning class in K-5 and 6-8 will participate in a kickball tournament. The pennies turned in will go to purchase books for an organization serving children. The St. Mary middle school houses will determine what organization to donate to. Scholastic books will match the number of books SMS donates to needy children.
Each student that purchases a book from the book fair will be entered into winning 1 of three posters, sports, animals or a celebrity. There will be a total of 3 posters available to select from. Your child is eligible even when you order online; just let Kacie Funk know by emailing her at email@example.com.
The 8th grade boys basketball team will have practice, Sunday, December 1 from 4:00-5:30.
Sometimes the work looming ahead of us in any aspect of our lives can be intimidating. We have to remind ourselves that Rome wasn’t built in a day, you eat an elephant (yuck) one bite at a time, and that bit by bit a big job is manageable. And so it goes with strategic planning. Being stagnant is not an option. We move forward by taking small, successful steps, one after the other. This summer my family attended mass at a small, rural church in the hills of Tennessee on a Saturday evening with their small congregation. Before mass many parishioners greeted us (as guests we stuck out like a sore thumb) and told us about their small but fairly new church- the people of that parish had waited 33 years for it to be constructed. During the homily, the Pastor said a very simple statement that has stuck with me: “Our job is the POSSIBLE. God’s job is the IMPOSSIBLE.” There’s a whole lot of possible we can accomplish at St. Mary School- God will take care of the rest.
