This morning we shared another story from our book Love Letters From God. Students were asked to add to their love letters this week. Be sure to ask your children how they are supposed to share their love with God during this upcoming week.
Our Bible verse for the week is from Philippians 4:11-12: “Not that I say this because of need, for I have learned, in whatever situation I find myself, to be self-sufficient. I know indeed how to live in humble circumstances; I know also how to live with abundance. In every circumstance and in all things I have learned the secret of being well fed and of going hungry, of living in abundance and of being in need.” We are again reminded what is NECESSARY to SHINE WITH THE LIGHT OF CHRIST.
PTO discussed at the meeting this week that we will try to run three spiritwear sales each school year.....Fall, Christmas, and Spring. The St. Anthony Spiritwear spring store is available until April 7th....Click here -> Stantcoug.itemorder.com. Let the school office know if you have any questions.
