Important Notes -
COVID UPDATE- We've had no cases or quarantines since returning to school after spring break.
All students are now attending in-person classes.
We are enjoying the small but HUGE changes this week such as all joining in prayer at closing, playing with more friends, and having mask breaks at recesses.
We will for sure continue wearing masks in the building for at least two more weeks. Staff member's second doses of the vaccine were postponed to this week. We will also need to consider the vulnerability of students' family members. This decision will be made by the School Council on Tuesday, April 13. Please give me or one of the council members your input in advance if you have suggestions or concerns. We will also consider input from the health department and our diocese when making a decision for the remainder of the year. Thank you for your understanding as we try to keep everyone safe while starting to move toward more normalcy.
We would love help with stuffing eggs for our annual Easter Egg Hunt on the Tuesday after Easter. Donations of candy or other items to stuff in eggs would be appreciated as well!! Contact Mrs. Whitehair if you can help.
If you have not turned in your enrollment for next year, please do so as soon as possible. We are making plans for next year based on pre-enrollment numbers.
If you are behind on tuition, we would appreciate your family trying to catch up this spring if possible. Without the complete auction, we are relying on our other sources of income to pay the bills. THANK YOU!!
Mark your calendars!! The auction has been moved to July 24. THANK YOU to those who have given cash donations or items. We will continue solicitations and hope to have them done by spring break.
Special All School Auction Project - "I SPY" Table. Each child is bringing home a baggie with instructions for returning an item for this project. Please read the note and help your child return an item to his/her teacher. THANKS!
Students are encouraged to bring money for the Monday and Wednesday mass collections, even if just a coin or two. Mass collections in March go to the Rice Bowl Charities.
We collected $190 for the auction! God bless all for your generosity!
