"How are we all alike?" was the essential question in Mrs. Blatner's class when thinking about peace in our world. They created a Unity Wreath to show that we "All promise to stand together to create peace in our world."  The children added doves to represent peace around the world.

Fr. Hurlbert, Faculty and students celebrated mass a week late due to the freezing cold last Wednesday. The introduction to mass and the readings and petitions were read with clarity and fluency by students from Grade 3.
