Prospective Parents2018-2019 Supply List & Calendar
“We appreciate what you’ve done in every way and in every place, And we want to thank you very much. Acts 24:3 Could it possibly be true? Another school year is coming to an end? The activities and energy in the air tell me it’s so. Even though it is ending, the year has been one of great achievement and accomplishment. Students have demonstrated tremendous growth both academically and spiritually. Setting learning goals and differentiating instruction enables students to achieve more. Providing students the opportunities to practice the works of mercy helps deepen their understanding of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. We are proud of the accomplishments of all our students. As we head into the summer months, please keep these areas of growth in mind. As with any seeds that are planted, they need to be watered in order to continue growing. Please continue to

“We can never thank God enough for all the joy you give us as we rejoice in God’s presence.” 1 Thessalonians 3:9 As we celebrate National Teacher Appreciation Week, I would like to personally take a moment to share my deep gratitude and respect for the teachers and support staff at St. Benedict Catholic School. They unselfishly give of their time, talent, and treasure to carefully nurture the gifts God has given to our students, not only academically but spiritually and emotionally as well. It is an honor for me to serve with all of our teacher-ministers and staff every day. Thank you for all the parental support given them all through the year.

When Jesus saw him lying there and knew he had been ill for a long time, he said to him. “Do you want to be well?” John 5:6 As we continue to experience the holy season of Lent, we remind ourselves and our students what it really means to be true disciples of Christ. It is not always easy because each day we are faced with many temptations from the evil one. Sometimes we say we are followers of Jesus but our actions do not exhibit this. Last Tuesday, Fr. Brown reminded us in his homily that just like the man in the Gospel, we may not want to be well. Sometimes we want to hold on to our sins instead of making a change and letting them go. One of the songs we sing at mass reminds us what it really takes to make the change that God wants:

“No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 Three 5th, 6th and 7th graders were surprised this week following the school mass on Tuesday. The middle school students wrote essays during Catholic Schools Week addressing what their Catholic education at St. Benedict School means to them. Their responses were amazing!!! What they didn’t know is that the essays were used to determine a student from each grade to receive a $500 scholarship from the Endowment Committee to be used toward their 2018-2019 St. Benedict tuition. We as Catholic educators have long understood the sacrifices that parents and families make to ensure their children receive a Catholic education. The choice you have made for your children to attend St. Benedict Catholic School is never taken lightly or for granted. Likewise our sponsoring parishes also invest

“You are salt for the world…” Matt 5:13 Catholic Schools Week was a wonderful celebration at St. Benedict School. We were blessed with good weather and great participation in all our events. Thanks to the many parents, grandparents and community members who joined us for mass and lunch. Special thanks to all the parents and PTO members for making sure we had what was needed. The investment of time and talent by our staff and volunteers is not only appreciated during Catholic Schools week, but all year long! Friday – Family Game Night was a lot of fun for the 100+ who attended. Thanks to our Enrollment and Retention Director, Erica Miley for organizing a great event. Saturday and Sunday I had the privilege to speak to the parishioners of Little Flower Parish about the examples of how students are responding to God’s call to learn, serve, lead and succeed

“Samuel answered, ‘Speak Lord, your servant is listening’.” Each year, the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) encourages the Catholic schools in the United States to set aside a week to celebrate. Catholic Schools Week helps us focus on the value Catholic education provides to our students and their families and well as the contributions to our church, our community and our nation. This year’s theme is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” Activities for students, families, parish communities and teachers are being planned for January 28 – February 4, 2018 and a list of events will be sent home in next week’s Thursday envelope. We look forward to celebrating with you! Save the Date for Family Game Night, Friday, January 26th from 5:30 – 7:30. This event will be a good excuse to get out of the house and will also help us kick off our annual Catholic Schools Week

“We are all partners with Christ if we hold firmly to the end the confidence we had at the beginning.” Hebrews 3:14 Happy New Year and welcome (finally) back to school. I am pretty sure that parents were just as eager to get the children back to school as teachers were to have them back in the classroom. The third quarter of school has always been my personal favorite. It is a time when schedules seem slower, routines are in place and we can really buckle down to some intensive instruction and learning! Having said that, I did regret getting off to a delayed start but under the circumstances, felt it was in everyone’s best interest to cancel school on the bitterly cold days and begin fresh this week. As you know, this was an unusual circumstance in which the individual Toledo Catholic Schools needed to make their own decisions.

“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
