Principal Corner Dear St. Bruno Families, “We Plant Seeds. Come Grow with Us!” This is the message on our sign on Ottawa Avenue. We are encouraging members of our greater community to come to St. Bruno Parish School for their education. You will notice encouraging messages on our sign to let our neighbors know who we are and what we offer. You’ll also see posts on Facebook. Advertising mailings are going out to families with school age children in the general area and as far as North Prairie and Mukwonago. Please share our ads with friends and family! We are St. Bruno, and proud of it! Grades 3-8 participated in the Sacrament of Reconciliation today, Wednesday, March 20. We thank the three priests in addition to Father Dan who came to serve us. Again today, we had an effective Quiet Wednesday entrance to school in the morning. We will continue to honor Lent, keeping in mind the three pillars of Lent: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving. Rice Bowl boxes can be brought to school during holy Week. Our St. Bruno Talent Show is TOMORROW, Thursday, March 21 at 6:30 pm. Do attend and see the entertainment our students have prepared for you! FREE of charge! It is the time of year to review our behavior expectations, similar to the beginning of the year when we gathered students in various areas of our campus and explained expected behavior in places such as hallways, bathrooms, classrooms, lunch room and playground. These expectations will be reviewed with students in their classrooms within the coming week. Perhaps it’s a good thing to ‘quiz’ them on during an evening at home, or dinner time! Thanks: for enrolling your students!! Faith opportunities: Check the parish bulletin and website for some great opportunities, especially in Lent Men of Christ Conference is March 30 CONTINUED ON PAGE 2
