Letter from the Principal
Welcome to Immaculate Conception School!
"When he looked up he saw some wealthy people putting their treasury and he noticed a poor widow putting in two small coins. He said, “I will tell you truly, this poor widow put in more than all of the rest; for those others have all made offerings from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood."
- Luke 21: 1-4
I was reminded of this scripture as I recently watched one of our preschoolers carry a toy to the donation bin. She was explaining that it was a toy she really wanted, but that she was not going to keep it, but instead was giving it to someone who needed it. At this young age, this little one completely understands (if even just for that moment) that our mission is to serve others.
As we are journeying through the season of Advent (and up to Epiphany), our students are reading daily devotionals that help them to prepare for the special gift of Jesus. Each day gives the students a new task: making a list of the gifts of God’s creation, checking out Christmas decorations and making sure that they show the way to God’s great gift, praying a bit extra that day. Our students are reminded of the incredible gift that Jesus was, and still is; and of their call to be like Jesus in all that they do.
May you and your family have a blessed Advent!
Immaculate Mary, pray for us!
Mrs. Joy Tokarsky, Principal
