Dear Parents,
 
Please read the attached Nurse’s corner information. Thanks to Nurse Burnside’s hard work and dedication we are able to offer the community voluntary Covid testing after Easter break. Just another opportunity to live up to the Parent Pledge and keep our children safe from exposure to Covid.
 
The 8th graders had a wonderful time yesterday participating in the Diocesan Vocations Event.  Held remotely this year, they conquered an escape room, using teamwork and camaraderie to unlock the secrets of the adventure. Thanks to Mrs. Johnston and Mr. Baxter for leading them in this fun day of reflection about vocations.
 
On Monday the younger grades were able to attend Mass in honor of the second bishop of the Diocese of Arlington, Bishop John Keating. First through 5th grades received a “shout out” for their participation in the Mass and exemplary behavior. Some tummies were rumbling as we had to rearrange our lunch schedules, but it was well worth it as we celebrated Bishop Keating’s life and were able to share time with Bishop Burbidge.
 
I wish you and your family a wonderful Easter. I do so in this week’s Blast since we will not be in school next week. Yup, a subtle reminder that next Monday begins our Easter Break. I will certainly be thanking God for the blessings of your children and our school community being back together this school year. And thank you to Father Posey for giving us the additional days off to recharge and prepare for the Resurrection of our Lord.
 
Happy Easter,
Cath
