Father Matthew Juggles...Again!
Paladins Wrestling Win at State

Our precious PreK children held a surprise celebration for Fr. Matthew's 25th Anniversary with the Legionaries of Christ. During their PreK Mass this week, the children were accompanied by parents and grandparents. Before the final prayer, students surprised Fr. Matthew with a spiritual bouquet of paper flowers, which included the children's photos and what they love about Father. They gave him a heart-shaped poster framed with their smiling faces and performed a song in his honor called "My God is so Great."

Ms. Brotheridge's 3rd grade students are using BrainPOP to create their own movies. They have been learning about the three branches of government. BrainPOP allows teachers to create an online class, whereby students can watch informational videos, play games that support learning, and create movies showing what they have learned! This experience also allows students to collaborate with peers, as they are thinking critically and creatively. Enjoy this sample of one of our student's videos. Kudos to Mrs. B and her class!

Today's the day everyone claims to be Irish! St. Patrick’s Day is March 17, in observance of the death of St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland. What began as a religious feast day in the 17th century has evolved into a variety of festivals across the globe, celebrating Irish culture and the trinity with parades, special foods, and GREEN!

Here are some interesting facts about St. Patrick:

March 17th is when Patrick died. His holy day is the day of his death, and subsequent en...trance to heaven, rather than the day of his physical birth.

St. Patrick wasn't Irish, and he wasn't born in Ireland. Patrick's parents were Roman citizens living in modern-day England.

St. Patrick was a slave. At the age of 16, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders who took him away and sold him as a slave.
