Thankful For Our Favorite Teachers
Kelly McGee, a student in the Sixth Grade at MPRCS, named Honors Math teacher Mrs. Bachman as her favorite teacher! Kelly talked about how much she enjoyed a recent math class in which Mrs. Bachman took the students outside to the basketball court to do a demonstration about proportions using foul shots as an example. We are grateful for all that our teachers do for the students and the school community as a whole.
The hard work of our students, parents, and faculty and staff continue to drive our ability to offer the option of in-person instruction. We at Mother of Providence are thrilled about how well the safety measures have been executed this year. 
Keep up the good work!
Blessing of the Animals
Each year, on or around the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi (October 4th), Catholic communities celebrate the "Blessing of the Animals" to commemorate the love Saint Francis had for animals and all of God's creation. Despite the unfortunate limitations resulting from COVID-19, Father Bell came from Nativity to Mother of Providence on Friday, October 2nd to hold a socially distanced (and adorable) blessing of our Kindergarten and Pre-K students' stuffed animals. We thank Father Bell for the continued spiritual guidance he brings to the students at Mother of Providence.
