FROM THE PASTOR
It’s hard to believe that summer is over and Labor Day is here. We will have Mass on Monday at , our usual holiday time. Please come and join us!
I hope that everyone is planning on coming to our parish picnic. This will take place next Sunday, September 11th, after the Mass on the school lawn. Please come and help us have some fun! I promise to pray for good weather, as that would obviously be a big help. Thanks to the Knights of Columbus who sponsor and work our picnic – they do so much for our parish, and we are grateful for all they do.
Our school year continues to go well. I appreciate everyone’s prayers for the success of the year. I told the children that I’m very glad to see them back, and Gabby is especially happy as she gets to say “Hi” to all of them. Let us thank the Lord for His goodness, and pray for His continued blessing upon all of us at St. Mary’s School.
Please know that I continue to pray for all of you. May God bless you!
Sincerely in Christ,
St. Mary’s parish picnic will be this Sunday, September 11th on the school lawn after the All are invited to attend. The Knights of Columbus will provide hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, buns and beverages. Please bring a side dish to share. A tent will be provided for sunshine or rain relief.

St. Mary’s School Notes:
· QSP the magazine sale begins this week. If you need to renew a subscription or would like to begin receiving a magazine please see a St. Mary’s school student.
Focus this week: Hands-on learning provides learning by doing--helping a student to acquire knowledge and skills outside of books and lectures. Learning can occur through work, play, and other life experiences.
Accomplished teachers include plenty of hands-on learning experiences, especially in science and math, to ensure student understanding of new and unfamiliar concepts. Hands-on learning can also be used to drive assessment so that teachers can measure both factual knowledge and comprehension.
Finance Corner: Anyone wishing to sponsor a child for the 2005-06 school year please contact Nancy Auer at 445-9668.
Please remember to honor your bingo commitment.
