THANK YOU for encouraging your child to do his/her homework - reading at home each school night and practicing math facts appropriate for his/her age. Those who meet their second semester class reading goal will enjoy a picnic at Eisenhower Park with Fr. Peter and Principal Whitehair. Reading to and with your child will help develop important literacy skills. New goals are in place for the second semester. REMINDER - students who attend after school are reading each night and can count those minutes.


AUCTION NEWS!!

WE ARE ONE WEEK AWAY! HELPERS NEEDED before, during and after the auction. Please find a way to share the gifts and talents of your family members in some way to support this important fundraiser. Donations and help count toward stewardship hours.

Auction Committees- https://signup.com/go/wDWixhT



CLASS PROJECTS - Each student is asked to help with their class auction project by sending a small donation to help cover the cost. A donation of $5 - 10 per child is suggested. Any amount above the expense of the class project goes to the auction profit. If this is a financial hardship for your family, even $1 is

appreciated and allows each child to be part

of the classroom project.


Raffle Tickets can be turned in each Friday for a chance at weekly prizes. Can we set a NEW SCHOOL RECORD for sales this year?? More tickets are always available in the tub on the front porch of the school.


Ticket sales started January 17. Tickets this year are $50 each.
