“Love is patient. Love is kind. It is not envious or boastful. It is not rude or self seeking. Love is not easily angered. Love forgives. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the Truth. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes and always preserves. Love never fails."
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Growing up one of my teachers encouraged us to substitute our own names for "Love" in this passage. She said to do it after we said our prayers each night-- to see how we did that day. Then she said something that has stuck with me for life. She said, "This passage and this exercise will mature and change you in ways you can't imagine. It will make you a better friend, a better sibling, a better child to your parents, and a better citizen of the world. You will be proud of yourself because you worked to put substance into your character. And other people will really notice how you are."
If you need to contact me for any reason regarding your student's progress, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need to get a message to me or a student during the school day, in the event I am unable to check email, please call the school office directly at 610-789-4100.
If your child is absent, please call the school before 8:30 a.m. Leave a message that includes your child’s name, grade, homeroom number, and reason for absence and check the Attendance policy for further information.
Students will not report to St. Dots for school on 3/28/17--It's a teacher inservice day. It was on the calendar as a half day, but that has changed. I believe Mrs. Sheehan sent an email communication to clarify.
Tuesday morning Mass during Lent
Grade 7 goes to 8AM mass every Tuesday during the season of Lent. Students should come straight to the classrooms to drop off school bags instead of going to the gym. If they arrive in time they can unpack and get ready for the day. We walk to church together as a class at 7:50 AM. Students who arrive later should meet us over at church--dropping their book bag off in the sacristy on the St. Joseph's side.
**Students should eat something when they get up on Tuesdays if they normally don't in order to prevent light headedness in church.
