This month we begin to look at incorporating Habit #2 "Begin with the End in Mind" . The importance of having a plan and setting goals is a critical life skill for our children today. As leaders in faith, we take this habit and go deeper by working to ensure we are doing things that have meaning and make a positive difference in our world.
It is easy to see Habit #2 in action here with our spiritual formation at St. Gabriel School. Fr.Joe and Deacon Bob both put a plan in place to share with our students some of the ways our angels and saints make positive impacts in our lives. During our weekly Children's Liturgy of the Word, Fr. Joe shared with our youngest Grizzlies how our Guardian Angels watch over us each and every day. Each child took home a special angel to hang over their bed at night so they can pray the Guardian angel prayer. Deacon Bob joined us for what is becoming a beloved tradition of the "Blessing of Stuffed Animals." Here he shared the story of St. Francis and his love for God's creatures and his desire for bringing peace to those around us. They too took home a special photo and prayer of St. Francis.
Not only are we building spiritual plans in our lives, but our academic goals are in full force too. One area that is already yielding high gains from beginning with the end in mind is with our Academically Talented program. Here are some highlights from units of study for grades 4-8. Mrs. Horne has been hard at work with these enrichment design challenges in our Innovation Center.
Finally, our CYO teams continue to support both Habit #1 Being Proactive, and Habit #2 Beginning with the end in Mind as they practice teamwork, perseverance, humility, as well as the pure love of the game as they prepare for their play offs this weekend.
The Grizzly Guarantee of forming leaders in faith who are spiritually, emotionally, and academically ready to make our world a better place is in action each and every day! Thanks to all who help support us in any way. We are so blessed!
Have a blessed week filled with peace, love, and joy!
