forward to it!
BASKETBALL PLAYERS: Please return uniforms, marked with your child’s name.
HOODIE ALERT! Have you noticed that your child has come home without his or her hoodie? That could be due to the fact that it is in our lost & found – which now has a total of 16 school hoodies accumulated on the rack in the cafeteria, not to mention other nice jackets as well. To claim, visit the rack. Parents – might be a good idea to take a minute to put your child’s name on the tags of all coats & jackets.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS: Students will be attending Stations each Friday at 2:15. If you or grandparents are attending stations, and you would like to take your child after the service, please send a note to school. This will enable the student to bring his/her backpack with them to church.
