Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:

 

A Message from Joe Fana, Principal of The Classical School

Conflict.  We all dislike it, yet it is inevitable.  It has been said that ‘sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me’.  Let us be honest for a moment – words hurt and have much power!   Much of what we experience with conflict is through our words.  How can we move towards life, rather than death through our tongue?  By asking for forgiveness for those we have wronged, seeking God’s forgiveness as well, followed by change.  Proverbs tells us “kind words are like honey – sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”  Meditate on ways you can show kindness to others through words and deeds – for “death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”
