This Friday, March 1 is Family Picnic Day at 11:30. We have Stations of the Cross at 12:05. Guests are welcome to join us. Third graders will be leading. If you'd like to take your child after Stations of the Cross (We dismiss at 1:00), please have him/her take bookbag to church. Let your child's teacher know if your child will be leaving from church. All others will return to the gym for dismissal.


Reminder of Calendar Change - we have a full day on Wednesday, March 6 (NO PM BUS SERVICE) and NO SCHOOL on Thursday, March 7 for Conferences.


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!!

WOW!!! What an AMAZING outcome!!


THANK YOU to all workers, donors, bidders, solicitors, and all who helped make this year's auction such a big success!!


Please see flier at right for details.


The auction is a terrific example of everyone sharing their God-given gifts and talents for the benefit of our students.


THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
