Throw Back Thursday - Getting ALL Our Children Ready for CATHOLIC School 
Love this photo of Katie, Emily and Georgia Myers as they were eagerly heading out to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Washington a couple years ago. 
Our Lady of Lourdes was among the first schools to receive a CCSE grant and its program has continued to grow.
Georgia said she loves going to a school where it doesn’t matter that that her sister, Emily, has Down syndrome – “they just care that she tries her best and that she is nice.”
Mom, Kathy, says that Our Lady of Lourdes “has truly been a place that didn’t just accept Emily, but they include her as a fully participating member of the community in whatever way she can manage to accomplish that, and they do the same for all their students. They see that each child has something to contribute.”
Congratulations and good luck to all our CCSE students and siblings as you head out this week and next to our Catholic schools and continue your education and faith-filled journey!
Send us your photos by email for us to use and don’t forget to tag us on Facebook and Twitter!

Join our many dozens of families, donors, school administrators, teachers, buddies and friends for great food and socializing on Sunday, September 25 from 3:00 – 6:00 pm as we celebrate the new school year with a party!
Enjoy mouth-watering barbecue (along with beer and wine), moon bounces, swings, games and conversation. All for FREE!
The highlight of the afternoon will be the announcements of which Catholic schools from the Archdioceses of Baltimore and Washington are receiving this year’s CCSE Grant Awards.

I’m writing this on a relatively mild day in August praying for an equally delightful day on September 25! See you there!
