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.


Please follow these instructions:

  • Pull up to the farthest open spot in the drop off zone.

  • Drop children off and pull out to your left to exit.

  • If bringing children into the building, park in the church parking lot directly east of the main entrance and cross in the cross walk.

  • No parking in the new drop off zone.

  • At dismissal - please pull into the drop off zone and wait - or park in the church parking lot.

  • We will release preschool and any older siblings of preschoolers first - at 2:55.

  • At 3:00 we will dismiss students to parents waiting in the drop off zone first to allow traffic to continue flowing.

  • When pulling up, please take the farthest spot south, and leave room to pull out to your left.
