Grandparents’ Day (Special Person Day)

Grandparents’ Day (Special Person Day) was a lovely celebration of family relationships, faith, and fun learning games for all of us. Thank you for making the arrangements with grandparents and family members to spend the day with your child at St. Dominic School. It was definitely the highlight of our week and we created many wonderful memories together. Developing relationships with family members brings us joy. It is a concrete action of love that brings joy to Jesus, Others, and Yourself. Thanks again for helping us to make Grandparents’/Special Person Day a joyful event for our school.

Our sixth grade class is teaching our school about the second Fruit of the Holy Spirit – Joy. This week they introduced the attached Joy poem. Please read and discuss the Joy poem with your child at home.
