Thousands of pro-lifers descended upon the National Mall in Washington, D.C. for the 47th annual March for Life. This year a group of students from Bishop Neumann High School took the cross country trek to join other students from around the country.What began as a small demonstration to honor the unborn after the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision has now developed into a full-scale rally.
“This is really good…” I thought at mass one morning as the children enthusiastically (“enthusiastically” comes from the Greek, meaning “with God in it!”) proclaimed the responses and belted out the hymns - some children even coming in too early in their excitement for a particularly beloved song.

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss, “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!”
Book buddies has been the highlight for many of the students at St. Wenceslaus. For the past four years, sixth graders have teamed up with kindergartners to learn from each other. Along with reading to each other, students play games, create art projects, and sit together at Mass once a month. This is an enjoyable way for sixth graders to develop leadership skills and practice being good role models for the younger students.

“I like playing games and making things together, like our monsters.” – Will
