"God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son; so that everyone who believes in Him might have eternal life." John 3:16

We have a very busy weekend in store. Tonight is our Designer Bag Bingo. The event is sold out and we are expecting a very large crowd. We are still in need of volunteers, so if you can lend a hand for a few hours check-in time is 5:00 pm. Special thanks to Mrs. Levy for organizing this first time event at St. Therese.

Tomorrow our Scrap and Craft Event will take place in the gym from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. Volunteers are also needed for this event, so if you can lend a hand, doors will open at 8:00 am.

Also taking place tomorrow, the remainder of our second graders will be receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time to prepare for their First Holy Communion in May. Our prayers are with them all.

On Thursday, March 21 our students had a "Tag Day" in honor of "World's Down's Syndrome Day." Students were treated to a special guest, Tina, who spoke to each of our classes. Tina was born with Down's Syndrome and had quite an impact on our students. Students raised over $200.00 for the cause.

Next Friday, March 29, our Annual Daddy/Daughter Dance will take place. The theme is "SHINE ON." There will be face painting, glow bars, dinner, dessert and music. The dance will begin at 6:00 pm and conclude at 9:00 pm. See the Friday Folder for more information.

On Saturday, March 30 Mr. Paul Kelly, STS parent, will be presenting a free seminar, "Maximizing High School Potential and the College Application Process at the Roxbury Public Library at 1:00 pm. The seminar covers topics such as establishing a strong academic profile and preparing for the SAT/ACT, building a college resume, conducting a college search, and resources for financial aid. The purpose of the seminar is to provide families with college bound middle and high school students with helpful information about the various aspects of what they'll need to know as they begin the college application process, a journey that should begin long before it's time to apply. Everyone who attends will benefit from this information. Parents and children are welcome. The library link for sign-ups is: https://roxburylibrary.org/events/event/maximizing-your-high-school-potential-and-the-college-application-process-lm/

If you are a basketball fan you will have your fill of college basketball on TV. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of "March Madness," whatever your madness might be.

Finally, I was at a funeral for friend on Thursday, and Fr. Martin Glynn in his homily said the best way you can remember a friend is to to do something good for someone else. We have all lost friends and loved ones at one time or another, so when you think of them, do something good for someone in their memory. In this way they will never be forgotten.

Have a Blessed Weekend

Principal STS
