You may have wondered what a day is like at your parish school OLS. The tale of a lost nickel may help your image come to life. About a week ago, a nickel was found on the cafeteria floor. A very responsible First Grade student quickly gave it to one of our Fifth Grade patrols. The Fifth Grade patrol asked a middle school student to bring it to the Main Office. Once in the Office, our very able student announcers included the "lost nickel" call in their morning greetings and prayer. Sadly, no one arrived to claim the lonely nickel. If you are the owner of that missing nickel you can find it in the Main Office along with the original student note "This was found on the cafeteria floor today."
Who Lost a Nickel?
Something wonderful is happening each day in the world of Our Lady of Sorrows parish school. The children are making the world a better place. The first child looked at that nickel, not as something to be kicked aside. Nor was it something that they could claim as their own! They quickly recognized it belonged to someone, and they were determined to find the rightful owner. Each hand along the way cared enough to move it forward. As I look at that nickel, taped to the note, it represents the fruits of our parish work in the education of children. This renews my faith in the mission of a Catholic school education and brings to life the sincerity of all of our students.
My dear parishioners, I thank you for your continuing support. Find comfort in knowing that you are making the world a better place, one child at a time.
Now, what do we do with the nickel sitting on that countertop!?
