I am so excited to be preparing for First Eucharist with you!
"It is not to remain in a golden ciborium that He comes down each day from Heaven, but to find another Heaven, the Heaven of our soul in which He takes delight."
-St. Therese of Lisieux
"Empowering Parents" is a piece I will add to our newsleytter every now and then. It contains bits of information aimed at encouraging you as parents during this stage of your child's growth.
Loving our children means making them go to bed on time!
Children need much more sleep than their adult counterparts. They take in enormous amounts of new information daily and need a FULL nights sleep for their brains to process and store what they have learned. Experts state that children from ages 7-12 need on average 10-11 hours of sleep every night. So tuck them in and watch their brains grow!

You may have heard that we have been taking some tests on the computer this past week. Our school took the NWEA MAP tests. I am using this as a measure of our second graders as a class to get a picture of where our strengths lie and what we should focus on as we go into the third trimester. We will not be sending home individual testing scores. A preliminary look at our class results affirmed my analysis of this group of children. Their hard work and excitement for learning have them on and often beyond pace for their age.
