YEEEHAW!! We will need a few adults to help with Wild West Pictures of students that we hope to do in November. Please let me know if you can share your talents for this project. “Wild West, 2022” is February 12. Please consider how you can help with this important fundraiser. THANK YOU for sharing your unique gifts and talents!!
On Wednesday we were close to the limit on COVID related cases to continue without masks. Please be prepared to move to masking if the diocese deems it necessary for the protection of our students and staff. Though we have no active cases among students and staff at this time, we have several in quarantine due to immediate family member cases. Please be diligent in monitoring your child for symptoms and keep him/her home if ill.
Thank you to all who are planning to help with driving to STARBASE or the Pumpkin Patch. We are excited to be able to go on field trips again!
Home Reading Challenge - students reaching their goal enjoyed a popcorn party yesterday. A new party is being planned for the end of the second quarter. Student goals are set by each classroom teacher. Please encourage your child to read (or listen to someone read for younger students).
Students are encouraged to bring money for the Monday and Wednesday mass collections, even if just a coin or two. Mass collections in August go to the Adopt-a-Student Program. THANK YOU for teaching your child about the importance of stewardship and helping others.
