As Second Grade marches into March, we begin with the celebration of Lent by going to church on Ash Wednesday. For the next 40 days, we prepare our hearts and minds for Easter, when we celebrate Jesus rising to new life. During this time the students will focus on a Sacred Tradition of Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving, (doing good for others). We practice these Lenten disciplines for our spiritual growth. Our Lenten Projects include donating to A Bed for Every Child, and 40 Acts of Kindness where we are encouraged to practice doing small things with great love. We will also learn about Saint Patrick who taught people about the Holy Trinity by using a shamrock as a symbol God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. May you have the Luck of the Irish this Season and beyond.
