A Note From The Principal

In last week's newsletter from my children's Catholic grammar school, the principal included the following note.

What Would Jesus Do?

We are called as Christians to teach non-violence and peace. We need to communicate this to our children in every aspect of their lives...that violence in any form is unacceptable (it can look like bullying, sarcastic remarks, racial slurs, copying of work, cheating, favoritism, gender inequality, etc. in our homes and schools) and we need to be clear in all our messages. We encourage our children to try to be more like Jesus. We need to ask them, "What would Jesus do?" We need to ask that question, give them time to think about a response and ask them to answer the question by indicating how Jesus would have acted. Then we need to encourage them to "go and do what Jesus would do." As we begin a New Year, let us continue to promote peace within and among ourselves and our children!

- Sr. Kathleen Marie, CR

I like your blog. Thanks for visiting mine at

I will be reading yours as well. I see you post a lot of letters from the principal of your Catholic school. I homeschool right now but am thinking of possibly putting my kids in Catholic school at some point. Maybe you can blog sometime about your personal experiences with Catholic schools. I'd be interested.

That is so true! I wish that everyone would teach their children that because they do not understand how they are affecting EVERYONE by the way they raise their children! They don't understand how much it HURTS when people are being bullied and how it creates a breeding ground for more bullying.
