Core Virtue of the Month:Hope

Hope is finding the light in the darkness and trusting the right endings

We will be praying specifically for our teachers and their families. Each week we will draw the names of three teachers from a prayer box and pray for them over the course of the next week. This week we will be praying for the following teachers: Mrs. Johnson (Library), Mrs. Matey (Lunch Helper), Miss Whitney (Extended Care), Miss St. John (Extended Care)
