Year End Message
The 2017-18 school year is coming to a close, and it was another inspiring year at Father Lacombe Catholic School! In addition to the great teaching happening every day in our classrooms, we also experienced some fantastic accomplishments in our extracurricular activities as well.
As summer vacation approaches, students and families are looking forward to making many wonderful memories. Summer activities provide valuable experiences in which students learn about themselves and the world around them. Your child’s learning can be enriched through daily reading and journal writing during this time.
Take some time to pray together too. In his homily, in Geneva (June 21, 2018) Pope Francis said the words “Our Father,” as taught by Jesus to his disciples in the day’s Gospel, reveal life’s meaning and a Christian’s identity: “we are God’s beloved sons and daughters. The ‘Our Father’ is the prayer of us...and of the Church.”
The pope criticized the complication of today’s daily life, noting how many people rush “from dawn to dusk, between countless phone calls and texts,” filled with stress and preoccupied with change, with no time to see the faces of others. A more simple lifestyle “would involve giving up all those things that fill our lives but empty our hearts,” he said. So let’s take time this summer to BE with each other...and keep it simple!
I am very proud of all that we have accomplished this year, and I look forward to continuing the conversations and activities that will lead to success for all students.
