Dear Parents,

Have you experienced the Best Lent Ever? There are many resources to guide us along the path of Jesus to Easter. The Third Grade led the Lent liturgy for our school this week and they did a wonderful job We remind the students to fast from- possibly a negative action, thought, or word, and to feast onpossibly a kind act, praying more, or reading the Bible. Every day we can make the life of someone else better.

In school, the students are encouraged to do their best work at all times. The monthly assemblies are an opportunity to celebrate those Students of the Month and Terrific Kids who have earned notice for their efforts. I appreciate your review and discussions with your child about their report card performance this week. Your efforts in preparing your student to arrive on time, well rested, and with assignments and food packed is key to their academic success along with their teacher’s facilitation in the classroom. Frequent tardiness and absences directly hinders a child’s school performance, and we applaud our many AS²A students who are ready to go in the morning!

Moving ahead:

The Bunny is hopping down the trail on April 8– do you have your Breakfast tickets yet?

Our Spring Scholarship Tea on April 23 has less than ten tickets left-we are thrilled! 100% of all monies go directly to tuition help for those in need.

When we return from vacation it will be time for Our 4th Annual STEAM NIGHT on April 27. What a fantastic showcase for our project based, blended learning. All will be amazed!!

 

Down our halls:

  •  Pre- K- Students are preparing for their Roman festival and at the end of Lent their Passion Play. They are strengthening their social and academic skills as spring blooms.
  •  Primary students are continuing their studies while enjoying the season. Many are involved with the Sound of Music drama in May, as well as presenting their robotics learning at the Brown University Robot Block party this month.
  •  Elementary students are determined to construct their squirrel proof bird house outdoors, and to continue improving their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills.
  •  Middle school students are advancing their understanding in their subjects while they move towards completing their google 20X projects to be presented on STEAM NIGHT. I have had the privilege of observing the faculty at work this month and continue to be convinced that All Saints STEAM Academy is blessed with the most collaborative professionals around! And your good families are the fortunate recipients!

I wish each of you a Blessed Easter, full of hope and joy!

Peace,

Mrs. Brouse
