Good Morning! I can not believe that it is already the 3rd week of November. At the bottom there are some pictures of our class working on our caterpillars. I am so grateful for all that you do and that you continue to do each day. Thank you for sending in snacks and for coming to our Fall Festival that we put on. I Will not be at school on Friday this week because I will be attending a training in Salina that day. If you have any questions please email me ahead of time. Please do not have your student use any of the coupons that they received from the Capital Campaign on that day. Thank you so much. I hope that you have a safe and wonderful week this week.

This week we will be talking about giving Thanks to God. Our Saint of the week is Saint Isidore the Farmer (1080-1130). Isidore spent much of his life workingon a farm in Spain. He and his wife Maria, also a Saint, showed their love for God by being kind to their neighbors. ALthough poor, Isidore and Maria shared their food with those poorer than themselves. He is the patron saint of farmers and migrant workers and his feast day is May 15th.
Prayer of the week: God our Father, we thank you for all your gifts. Help us follow the example of Saint Isidore by praying each day, by working hard, and by sharing our food with the poor. Amen.
