Excerpt from Friday Focus: June 8, 2013

November 15, 2012

“May 31, 2013 “For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same; there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

• Attention 6th & 7th Grade Parents:  French blue shirts are part of our school uniform and a long standing tradition at Durham Nativity School. A few weeks ago a Lands End shirt order form was placed in your Friday envelope.  The order for the French blue shirts will be placed on July 16th.  This will be the one and only order placed.  You may send in your orders and payments any time now. Only shirts that are paid for will be ordered.  All shirts must be French Blue; purchasing from Land’s End guarantees the appropriate color and ensures a nice quality shirt.  
Please call if you need any additional information.  Thank you. ~ Mrs. DuPree
