The first grade began their Rainbow Journey of Lent together in their classroom when they discussed that red was the “Heart of Love” and how they can show love to others. They ended their Rainbow Journey of Love together with their class online when they discussed that purple is “Forgiveness” and how they feel when they are forgiven and when they offer forgiveness. The first grade also discussed how God’s love and forgiveness for us is far greater than we can ever give, receive or imagine. God loved us so much that He gave us His only Son so we can have our sins forgiven. Just like the rainbow is a symbol of hope, Lent and Holy Week, though a time of sadness, give us hope for our eternal happiness with God.
The little chics in Mrs. Guthrie's Science Class are growing up fast. They are already two weeks old and feathers are starting to show!

Mrs. Seaberg's Fifth Grade finished of their Spirit Week with DISNEY DAY!
Due to the uncertainty of the current COVID-19 virus situation, Mary of Nazareth Catholic school made the decision to work with our parents for the long term. We choose not to treat this as an extension of Flexible Instruction Days. We have become a complete cyberschool. Teachers are running their own independent classrooms with all subjects. There is real time instruction, homework, and assessments. Just as would happen if we were in a traditional setting. Mary of Nazareth school is already able to teach online for the duration of the virus outbreak. Our instruction methods and learning will continue without interruption or change even if the shelter in place order is extended by the State of Pennsylvania. -Sue Walters EdTech Teacher/STEM Coordinator Mary of Nazareth Catholic School
