Thank you to Deann Feldt for taking Wild West pictures of the students for the auction!
Congratulations to the fourth and fifth graders who earned over $1,200 for their angel tree project! What a beautiful way for children to learn about sharing their time, talent, and treasure with others in need!
Battle of the Books meets this Wednesday, 3:00 - 4:00.
The K- 5 Christmas program is this Thursday at 7:00 in the high school auditorium. Students may wear nice Christmas clothes. Students should report to the high school at 6:45.
COVID vaccinations for children ages 5 - 11 are now available in our community. This is an optional vaccine - please talk to your health care provider if you have any questions. We will send out any information we receive regarding vaccination clinics in our area. Please continue to be diligent in monitoring your child for symptoms and keep him/her home if ill.
Home Reading Challenge A new party is being planned for the end of the second quarter - it involves a PAJAMA DAY. Student goals are set by each classroom teacher. Please encourage your child to read (or listen to someone read for younger students).Mrs. Whitehair added an EXTRA challenge. If ALL students reach their goal during any quarter, she will KISS A PIG!!
Students are encouraged to bring money for the Monday and Wednesday mass collections, even if just a coin or two. We collected over $215 for Catholic Charities during October. GREAT JOB!! THANK YOU for teaching your child about the importance of stewardship and helping others.
