Lenten Blessings,snow

Thank you to our faculty, staff, parents, and students who participated in our annual Lenten family dinner.  The faculty and staff cooked their favorite red beans and rice recipes, made specialty salads and other goodies, and served our families.  It is always a special evening together.

2nd Annual Poetry Night

JazzNightIn celebration of National Poetry Month, we look forward to our second annual poetry night on Wednesday April 12th at 6:00 p.m. in the Ave Maria Hall.

The premise is a casual, coffeehouse style reading with students, teachers and parents (maybe you?) simply getting up and reading a published poem that they love, has inspired them etc.

Parents, if your student is a good reader and has a flair for the dramatic please insist they participate. If YOU love reading poetry or have written some original poetry and would like a venue to read it aloud, I’ll put you on the list to read. If you have a friend or neighbor who loves poetry– get ’em involved. I am also looking for acoustic guitar players to provide music for the evening. Musical renditions of poetry are also welcomed!

Coffee, cocoa, and cookies (check out my alliteration) will be served. I appreciate in advance your kind help in volunteering to do a polished recitation and/or reaching out to friends, RSVP today- Please send me names of anyone interested in participating. Hope to see you cool cats on the 12th! Beanies and berets optional.

Dig it man!
