One More day to bring in Kid's coats, jackets, hats and scarfs!!! We are donating to St. Angela Merici School in Bronx, NY. Thank you to the Zumbek family for taking charge…
Christmas Production- Dec 18th 6:00 pm
St Angela Merici Parish School is proud to present the " A Christmas Carol" as a production for the parents. This play is to allow our students to have the experience of theater arts and to share their talents with their peers and families. The script has been read by a couple of staff members, including the administration. The songs will include fun songs "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" to "The First Noel". This will be
presented on Tuesday, December 18th at 6:00 pm in the church. All students are involved with the production, but as always, is optional for the children.
Christmas Prayer Service Dec. 20th 9:30 am
We also would like the parents to join us on Thursday, December 20th at 9:30 am to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. All of our students will be participating in the story of the birth of our Jesus Christ with prayers, spiritual songs and celebration. This is NOT optional for our students to attend due to it is part of the school day. We highly encourage our parents to show for this celebration due to the majority of our parents do come
to school that day to celebrate Christmas parties.
We have a production and a prayer service this school year and are very excited about both days.

Prayer at Harvest and Thanksgiving
O God, source and giver of all things, You manifest your infinite majesty, power and goodness In the earth about us: We give you honor and glory. For the sun and the rain, For the manifold fruits of our fields: For the increase of our herds and flocks, We thank you. For the enrichment of our souls with divine grace, We are grateful.
Supreme Lord of the harvest,
Graciously accept us and the fruits of our toil,
In union with Jesus, your Son,
As atonement for our sins,
For the growth of your Church,
For peace and love in our homes,
And for salvation for all.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Parent Education-Cyber Bullying
Parent tips for elementary school kids
»»Keep online socializing to a minimum. Let your
kids use sites like Webkinz or Club Penguin where chat is pre-scripted or pre-screened.
»»Explain the basics of correct cyber behavior.
Tell your kids that things like lying, telling secrets, and being mean still hurt in cyberspace.
»»Tell your kids not to share passwords with their friends. A common form of cyberbullying is when kids log in to another child’s email or social networking account and send fake messages or post embarrassing comments. Kids can protect themselves from this
by learning early on that passwords are private and should only be shared with their parents.
