Students have two important opportunities for the final few weeks of school. We are working towards a PRINCIPAL's PARTY for good behavior and a final reading party. This is scheduled for Monday, May 23.
Students are encouraged to bring money for the Monday and Wednesday mass collections, even if just a coin or two. THANK YOU for teaching your child about the importance of stewardship and helping others.
