First, learn how to honor the holy season of Lent and celebrate Palm Sunday as our Hispanic friends do, (in Spanish) with the creation of beautiful palm crosses. Then, during this National Literacy Month, enrich your child’s comprehension, engagement and intelligence with the always important gift of reading.

Several events of great interest are also coming your way in the weeks to come: “Transform Your Website Into a Powerful Marketing Tool” with Emily Cretella on March 22; “Instructional Strategies for Students with Learning, Attention and Gifted Needs for Catholic School Educators, Catechetical Leaders and Catechists” on March 23; “Catholic Scouting Religious Emblem Training for Adults” and “Boy Scout Chaplain Aide Training,” both on April 7. For more information on these and other important opportunities, visit the Program and Event Registration page of the OEEC website.
