We will have mass next week on MONDAY and Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. Please join us if you can. Mass collections in February go to Ronald McDonald House Charities. Students are encouraged to bring money for mass collections, even if just a coin or two. THANK YOU for teaching your child about the importance of stewardship and helping others.
Valentine's Day on Tuesday, February 14, teachers will be sending class lists in grades K - 5. Preschool students do not address to specific children, just sign their name on the back (Parents' help is ok with this many) and send enough for each child in the class. Students participating need to make a valentine for each child in his/her class only - not for students in other classes. Valentines may be brought on Monday, February 13 or Tuesday, February 14.
We will be using the south doors Wednesday - Friday next week.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION!!
