Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thanks to all who volunteered to sell Taco Night tickets after the Masses this weekend. Thanks to those who took tickets to their home parish or their workplace to sell. We will be selling tickets after the Masses again this coming weekend. All ticket sale slots are full, but, if you would like to sell tickets at a different location please let us know.
I would also like to thank you for purchasing your own tickets for yourself and your family. If you have not taken advantage of a night of no cooking please do. Remember you can take the dinners to go right after school.
Have you had the chance to purchase our very cool looking Spirit items yet? We are proud of our school and want all to know. We have hats, koozies, cooler cups and stickers in the office. All have the school logo. Stop by the office and take a look.
Thank you to all for turning in the paperwork required this year. I apologize for any confusion on this. I do appreciate your understanding.
Students have begun ITBS testing and all is going smoothly. Please note that there is no homework this week but there is still practice for the sports program. Please ensure your child has a good night sleep and a good breakfast.
Our Casino Night is coming up in November. We will be selling tickets after all Masses beginning the weekend of October 1st. If you would like to earn service hours and support this worthy cause please call the school office. The list of churches and Mass times has been attached with this newsletter.
Cul de sac pick-up can get crowded on some days, crossing over Ave. I. The family who lives on the corner, across from the Pre-K house, has asked that we not block the driveway when in line for cul de sac. Please help honor their request.
Have a wonderful week and God bless you for all you do.
