As we prepare for Catholic Schools Week at school, we reflect upon the many blessings that come with the gift of Catholic education: a close relationship with God, a faith-filled environment for learning, teachers that model Gospel values, families that share similar beliefs and goals for their children. Thank God for this opportunity, and thank our benefactors for their gracious support!
Plan to attend Open House on Sunday, January 28th from 9am-12, following the 8:00 mass. Bring a prospective family and your child will receive free dress for a week!
Mrs. Gina Olsen, Principal

SERVICE HOURS OPPORTUNITY
Do you need Service Hours? We are in need of some parent volunteers to help us clean up the school before our Open House this Sunday. If you can help during school hours or after school please contact the office.
Invite a perspective family!
Rules and Reasons
RULES: SERVICE HOURS: Each family contributes 30 service hours to the school each year. Each family has been given a Service Hour Card. Each family is responsible for its own card. These hours are to be logged by the parent and signed off by a teacher or staff member in charge of the activity. 5 of the 30 hours MUST be completed at the Parish Bazaar. (PG.20)
REASONS: The school depends on the dedicated efforts of its families in contributing this assistance to help ease the cost to the school.
