REMINDER TO PARENTS OF STUDENTS BRINGING LUNCHES FROM HOME: Please see that your child’s lunch has everything they need for their meal – drinks, plates, utensils, condiments, napkins. The lunch program cannot afford to supply these things if the student is not buying the daily lunch.
DEADLINE FOR FRIDAY NOTES: Thursdays, 9:00 am. All non-school related flyers need to be copied ahead of time on paper. The school cannot afford to supply paper for outside events). Upon approval by the principal, the information will then be placed in the Friday folder as a courtesy. It is not appropriate for the school to send out extraneous information that can be handled other ways. Also, if you have items for the Friday notes, please write these items up, send them in, or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org (call to let me know you have emailed please). I don’t mind doing a little editing and rewording, but the bulk of the item should be outlined with details.
BALL SCORES: We have a couple weeks of scores to report due to the shortened week last week. Last Thursday, Jan. 12th, the girls lost against St. Martin, with a final score of 22-41; the boys won last week, with a final score of 37-30 against St. Francis, Xavier, Taos. Last night we had a great crowd for the girls playing at home. They lost their first game against IC, JC, 11-25, and won their second game against Honey Creek, ending out the game at 25-17. The boys played at St. Martin against St. Thomas last night, and beat them out by a wide margin – 42-22. Both Cougar teams are having good seasons, winning many, losing a few. We are very proud of you all! Go teams!
