HSCA November 2017 - News from Mrs. McPherson’s Class
Bring Headphones for the Computers: Please allow your 5th Grade students to bring a set of headphones to use at school while they are on our classroom computers.

Prayer for Our New School
Almighty God, because we love our students because our hearts yearn for our new school, we cannot remain silent. We will not stop praying until their righteousness shines like the dawn, and oursalvation blazes like a burning torch. May we be called the Holy People and the People Redeemed by the Lord. May Holy Savior Catholic Academy be known as the Desirable Place. We cannot do this on our own Father, so I ask for Your help in the name of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Amen.
