Prospective Parents
“Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly; do not claim to be wiser than you are. Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all. If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.” Romans 12:14-18 These words from Paul’s letter to the Romans aptly describe the lives of all the saints in heaven. Many of the saints we do not know but many we do. They are family members and friends who lived by the same qualities in this verse. They listened to and learned from the guidance of parents and teachers who believed in the same values. As parents and teacher-ministers, we are

“Come Lord Jesus…Come and be born in our hearts” It’s beginning to look a lot like Advent! The holy season of Advent begins this Sunday. How blessed we are to have this time within the church year to wait and prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus. We use many signs and symbols at school to remind us that the coming of Christmas is much more than gifts under the tree… it is about the gift of Jesus himself. Please be sure to ask your children what they have learned about Advent through the Advent Wreath, Advent calendar, the Jesse Tree or other symbols they may be using in their classrooms! Advent Feast Days December 6th is the feast day of Saint Nicholas, the patron saint of children, which appropriately falls during the Advent season. This feast day is an especially exciting one for children as they count down

“ Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 We are blessed at St. Benedict Catholic School to be co-sponsored by two very supportive parishes; Little Flower and Our Lady of Lourdes Parishes. The support includes the leadership and guidance of the parish pastors, Fr. David Nuss and Fr. Joseph Cardone. In addition to their regular assigned duties, each pastor alternates two year terms as the local superintendent of St. Benedict Catholic School. Again we have been blessed with two priests who truly believe in Catholic education. Unfortunately, we will have to say goodbye to Fr. Cardone very soon. Bishop Daniel E. Thomas has made the following announcement this past weekend: “Very Reverend Joseph P. Cardone, VF, has been released for service in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati as Chief Mission Officer and Senior Vice-President of Mission and Values Integration, Mercy Health, Cincinnati, Ohio, effective

“Grandchildren are the crown of grandparents, And parents are the glory of their children.” Proverbs 17:6 What a wonderful day we had celebrating and sharing time with our grandparents and special friends. Beginning with the celebration of the Mass, Fr. Dave reminded us of the special place these wonderful people have in our lives. Students and grandparents alike enjoyed the doughnuts and refreshments provided by our PTO. The gym was adorned with heartfelt messages on placements reminding our grandparents they are a gift from God. Teachers welcomed grandparents to their rooms where students proudly shared their accomplishments. The blessings of this day are too numerous to count and we are so happy to be able to celebrate these special people in our school family. Parent/Teacher Conferences The first quarter of the school year ends Friday, October 13th. Report cards will be sent home on Friday, October 20th. Parent Teacher Conferences

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.” St. Francis of Assisi Fall is here! Now that the weather is beginning to change, we ask that all students are following the “Regular School Dress Code” as found in the Family Handbook.

The ONLY sweatshirt/fleece that may be worn are the “official” St. Benedict embroidered styles. SOCKS Solid red, black or white knee socks, tights, leggings, anklets are permitted. Socks must be worn with shoes at all times and must show above the shoes. SHOES PLEASE CHOOSE NON-ATHLETIC SHOES—no logo—to be worn with the regular school uniform.

“This is the day the Lord has made;  Let us rejoice in it and be glad.”                                                            Psalm 118:24                                                                                                       MANY THANKS Tuesday, September 19 was a gloomy, rainy day but there was plenty of SUNSHINE as we witnessed the dedication and blessing of the homes for our new neighbors.  The prayers of our students were heard as the rain subsided just long enough for the ceremony and dismissal to take place. Our National Junior Honor Society helped lead the opening prayer and escort Bishop Daniel Thomas on the tour of the Sunshine home following the ceremony.  As the residents turned the corner to enter their home, they were welcomed with a huge banner and the sound of a blessing song from all the members of our student body.  Their new rooms inside were easily found by the student decorated name slates hanging on each door. While St. Benedict School played

“…let those who boast, boast in this, that they understand and know me, that I am the Lord…”                                                                                                                                                                    Jeremiah 9:23 Thanks to all the families who have returned to school the requested beginning of the year forms.  If you have not yet done so, please return them as soon as possible. State and Federal Programs St. Benedict Catholic School (as well as other non-public schools in the state of Ohio) has access to some state and federal funding for educational programs for our students.  Though the funding is limited, it provides us opportunities like our wonderful school nurse, counselor, speech therapist and intervention specialist as well as Title I tutors that we otherwise would not have. The formula for funding requires an accurate account of low income family eligibility.  While we recognize this as being very sensitive, it truly benefits the entire school population.  We pledge to keep
