Our Virtue Focus for the month of January - Self-Control
During this month of January we celebrate the virtue of self-control. Self-control helps us to resist the temptation to do something that we will regret. It also helps us to resist the temptation to do something that will harm ourselves or others. Each time you exercise self-control you grow stronger in the Lord and invite peace to settle over life as you avoid any guilt you may feel from having made a poor decision.
Show me your ways, O Lord, and teach me your paths. -- St. Francis de Sales
 
A person with self-control.....
is patient
knows how to wait his or her turn
can calm him or herself down and think before reacting to situations
knows how to avoid physical aggression (hitting, kicking, pushing, etc.)
can think things through
applies effective communication, decision making, problem-solving & resource management skills
 
   Let us pray for the virtue of self-control so that we will resist the temptation to cause harm to ourselves or to others around us. AMEN

PREPARING FOR THE WEATHER
In the event of inclement weather, tune in to CKNW AM 980 on the radio for information regarding any school closure. Information can also be found on their web site, www.cknw.com or on our website www.stmichaelschool.ca. In the case of inclement weather in the morning, closures are usually reported every ten to fifteen minutes.  The class phoning parents will phone all the families to ensure that everyone is informed of the closure. Please do not tie up the school and parish telephone lines by trying to call these offices. The radio station WILL NOT announce if the school is open; therefore, if you DO NOT hear the name of the school then the school is open. Likewise, if you do not receive a call from your class phoning parent then the school is open. All calls will be made by 8:00 am. As traveling conditions vary depending on where you live, please use your own judgment regarding sending your child to school. The staff, however, will always work to keep the school open when safety is not in question.  Also, please remind your child/ren to wear clothing appropriate for the weather, (i.e. boots, warm jacket, mitts, toques). If weather conditions are reasonable, students will go outside to get some fresh air during recess and lunch breaks.
 
Thought of the week…
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
~Is. 43:18-19
