Our Final Week Together of 2017…
Holy Spirit Families: We are grateful for our journey together so far and the final week of 2017 is filled with many opportunities to join in the fun that will take place at our school next week. We find it particularly fitting that on Gaudete Sunday, or the Sunday in Advent focusing on joy, that we are able to share with you the many planned activities that will bring joy to our hearts as we continue our Advent journey together. Also, there are some important details for each day so please read carefully and refer back to this reminder so you or your child will not miss out on any of the fun. We hope everyone is able to take part in the fun!
Highlights From Last Week…
We had lots of fun in our first snowfall. We also participated in a pilgrimage around our property to transfer the Pilgrimage Cross to Monsignor Doyle. A special Thank You to Mrs. Nguyen, Mrs. Gingerich and Mrs. Martins for helping plan that spiritually enriching event. We also want to thank the senior students on the Student Leadership Team and their staff advisors Mrs. Ianni, Mrs. Lemos, Mrs. Hanley, Mrs. Hersh and Ms. Sartoretto. Together they made a real difference to our community through their Giving Tree. A special thank you to all families who supported that toy drive campaign. We could not do it without you!
