A Message from Ms. B:
This week was a lot better than last week. How can that be? I’ve heard teachers singing in the hallways, praising their students for their great behavior and have even witnessed some high fives. It’s been fun walking into classrooms (it’s always Math class, never English!!) and interacting on an academic level. Students are checking Progress Book and discussing with teachers how to improve their grades. The second grade were all quiet when returning from Music class, and the 8th grade sat with their buddies at Mass on Wednesday. (I even heard some singing from the 8th graders!)
Fr. Jim told us to listen…patiently. That really resonated with me and I thought about Lourdes. We have patiently waited for things to come together, for us to really see the “vision” we started working toward. We have worked hard to offer our students quality academics and continue to have many scholarship winners to our local high schools. We are “outfitting” our STEAM Lab with some really cool things! For “hands-on” critics thinking and problem solving. We hope for the health of our students, both physical and mental and have incorporated Health as a class into our curriculum. We hired our very own Mental Wellness Specialist, Mrs. Brown, who helps with the health of our brain and the social parts of life and Mr. Jones focuses on the body health, nutrition and eating healthy. We found a new Religion textbook that will be informative and meet the spiritual needs of our students while they are learning about Jesus and His Teachings.
I’m not saying we’re perfect but we are “pawesome”. If you want to see the good works of the Tigers, c’mon in and volunteer! We have a library that could be re-catalogued, we need daily readers for Kindergarten, and help in the cafeteria. If you are feeling slightly daring, you could always volunteer for recess duty or freshen up the grounds with some gardening. Great things are happening around campus. As always, I’m glad for the Opportunities to Lead, Learn, and Serve with our Tigers!
