2017-18 school year
February 19, 2018
Dear Koraes Families,
We have concluded our final classroom party for the year. Thank you KPTA for securing so many parent volunteers to help make special occasions more memorable. Our next opportunity to parents to volunteer is for Dr. Seuss Day, March 2 and Career Day, March 16. Please see information coming from the KPTA regarding these opportunities.
During the annual season of Great Lent, the Church teaches us how to receive Him by using the two great means of repentance - prayer and fasting. “Man does not live by bread alone.” The needs of the body are nothing compared to the needs of the soul. Above all else, we need God, Who provides everything for both the body and the soul. Fasting teaches us to depend on God more fully. Please refer to the letter sent on February 19 from our office.
During Lent students will be reciting the Lenten Prayer of St. Ephraim
O LORD AND MASTER OF MY LIFE,
TAKE AWAY FROM ME THE WILL
TO BE LAZY AND TO BE SAD;
THE DESIRE TO GET AHEAD
OF OTHER PEOPLE AND
TO BOAST AND BRAG
GIVE ME INSTEAD A PURE
AND HUMBLE SPIRIT
THE WILL TO BE PATIENT
WITH OTHER PEOPLE
AND TO LOVE THEM
O LORD AND KING, LET ME
REALIZE MY OWN MISTAKES
AND KEEP ME FROM JUDGING
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE DO,
FOR YOU ARE BLESSED
NOW AND FOREVER. AMEN
My prayer for us is to have a Lenten Season that helps us to grow our relationship with Our Savior through prayer and fasting.
