I hope your family had a wonderful and restful Labor Day weekend!  It sure felt like summer with those hot temperatures!

Just a gentle reminder- please make sure your child’s accounts for lunch and extended care are current.  It makes billing easier for all involved.

Don’t forget  to read Mrs. Floyd’s Weekly Roar to stay current on all the school events.  Check the website daily, if possible!

Religion

Chapter 2: The Seven Sacraments

Did you know the Greek work for “sacrament” is mysterion, which means mystery?  The Latin word is sacramentum which means oath or pledge.  In the Seven Sacraments, we celebrate the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ.  Think about one Sacrament you received.  How has it helped you carry out Christ’s mission in the world?

We will discover that Jesus Christ and the grace of the Sacraments help us avoid sinning.
