Thank you so much for your wonderful support of our eleventh annual “Race for Education,” on Friday, April 20, at the Richardson Oval off Monhegan St. in Clifton, We especially wish to express our appreciation to all those who came out to assist in various ways and cheer on our students. We are still heading towards our goal of $5,000. The school is very grateful for all your help to make this a successful fundraiser.
As for the race itself, despite the cool and breezy weather, the students did a great job completing their laps. We thank Clifton Mayor James Anzaldi for being on hand at the beginning of the race, despite his busy schedule. This year top honors for the most laps run went to 7th grader Areos Idrogo for 37 laps—a new school record! Bravo! At the end, students were in a cheerful mood as they returned to the school, celebrating with movie and popcorn parties.
Welcome to spring! Springtime signifies rebirth as trees begin to bud and flowers bloom. We are grateful to God for the life-sustaining environment he/she provides for us, fitting in with this month’s virtues of Environmental Awareness and Citizenship. God is trusting us as good citizens to take care of the Creation. With spring break coming up next week, we hope that you and your child(ren) will be able to spend some time together.
The Virtues-of-the-Month for March are Responsibility & Self-Awareness. As our children grow, one of the most important qualities they need to learn to develop is a sense of responsibility. When we strive to help our children become responsible persons we are helping them toward maturity. We can do this in the same way that we help them to develop other desirable traits: by practice and by example. At the same time, our children are developing their self-awareness as mature individuals, taking responsibility for their behavior, both good and bad, while seeking to multiply the good and learning from the bad.
