All Saints Catholic School serves the north Dallas, Plano, and Collin county areas. We are a faith based elementary and middle school centered around Christ. ASCS exists to pass on the Catholic faith to our children in a challenging academic environment with Gospel values as a foundation and Christ as the model. Parents, the primary educators of their children, together with our community, share the common goal of preparing children for life-long learning and Christian service. All Saints Catholic School is committed to nurturing each child's spiritual, intellectual, social, moral, emotional and physical development.
Each week, our principal, Sister Denise Thompson, blogs about different happenings at All Saints Catholic School. Check out what's on her mind this week:
December 11, 2013
‘Twas the week before the week before Christmas break….and the school has that pre-Christmas feel to it. It’s hard to describe. As I went around the school today the teachers were busy teaching and the kids were really attentive but there are hints of the days to come peeking out – gingerbread figures hanging out in front of kinder, the Christmas tree in the atrium, preparation for the Christmas program, lovely poinsettias here and there, the Nativity sets, I could go on but you get the picture. It’s a nice feeling knowing that Christmas is right around the corner. It’s especially nice to know that our children understand the true meaning of the Season.
Tomorrow we will be celebrating the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Although I knew of this feast before I moved to Texas, this day has come to mean so much more to me as I have come to knowand love the richness of the Hispanic community. This day reminds me that no matter who we are– rich, poor, no matter what culture or ethnic group we belong to, the protective mantle of Mary covers us with her love. In Mary’s appearance to Juan Diego, a poor and humble man, she brought dignity and honor to the community in Mexico. Mary’s love is for all people. That’s part of the beauty of the day. I hope you will take some time to read the story of Juan Diego and Our Lady. It is an amazing story of trust and simplicity.
On a personal note, Friday will be my last day until we come back from Christmas break on January 7. I will be having bariatric surgery on Monday. I am sad that I will miss the fun of the week and especially the beautiful Christmas program on Tuesday night. I would ask that you would keep me in your prayers. Mrs. Redmond will take good care of the school in my absence.
Christmas blessings to each of you.
