We would like to share a special message from Sister Carolyn Marie Monahan, O.P. (past Principal at Mission Elementary) to our teachers and staff.
Dear Friends - as we pray together for peace in our communities, our country and our world, know that I am so very grateful to each of you for the many ways you are teaching peace as a living reality in your schools. You encounter so many challenges throughout the days and seek ways to model peace and teach peace as a how we can best live together. May the children you teach today be the peacemakers of the future!
As I was going through files, I found the attached sheet of quotes - Children thinking about peace. Perhaps it can spark some thoughts among your own children. My favorite comes from Robert Fulghum . . . remember the fellow who reminded us that all we really need to know we learned in kindergarten!! I cannot read it without a smile and hope that peace could be this contagious!
Special gratitude and prayer for each of you today - Sister Carolyn Marie
