Dear Tiger Families,
Today, we celebrate Palm Sunday and this week we begin a very special week in our faith, Holy Week. It is a time when we celebrate in a special way the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. We remember Jesus’ actions, reflect on the messages, and recommit to living as Jesus’ disciples in the world today. Here is a link from Father Joseph which explains Palm Sunday and how each of us can welcome Jesus: Lent: Week 6 Reflection.
At school, our students will participate in a Reconciliation liturgy led by the students in Mrs. Ianni-Murphy, Mrs. Huisman, and Mrs. Leandres’ class, and the Stations of the Cross led by students in Ms. DiGravio, Ms. Kelly, and Miss Leclair’s class.
Congratulations to our Grade 2 Students:
