Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms in our community! Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and the patron saint of our district, is the greatest example of motherhood ever known. She loved, protected, nourished, supported, encouraged, and taught Jesus.
There is no greater gift than a mother’s love, and we see that gift reflected daily in the faces of the children of our school. At Our Lady of Mount Carmel, every day we see children who treat others with compassion, by helping each other come to the office for ice when they’ve fallen and scraped a knee; we see loyalty in our children when they share friendship with another; we see children treat each other with fairness when they ask someone feeling left out to play; we see respect when they greet guests to our school with smiles and enthusiasm; we see empathy and understanding when they say, “I’m sorry” to another student feeling hurt; all of the things that you teach, support, and encourage your children at home to do and then wonder if they will remember, they do at school. It is a joy to work with your children! We celebrate the many blessings of being linked hand in hand with children. Happy Mother’s Day—relax, enjoy and celebrate!
We have two months of classes remaining. Has the time gone quickly? We hope so. That’s an indication of success, a sign that our students have been fully-engaged in learning throughout the year.
As we move into the final weeks of the school year the warm weather and many outdoor activities often make it difficult for students to remain focused on schoolwork. You can help your child strike a balance between school work and play by ensuring that a regular time and place are set aside each evening for homework and study, and by also including time to “enjoy the moment” with your child.
We will be celebrating Our Lady of Mount Carmel Feast Day on May 15. Elementary students will hold a celebration in the morning, at 10:40 a.m., followed by a number of activities for rest of the day. On the same day, our Junior High students will be participating in our annual track and field meet. We look forward to both of these events!
