Friday Newsletter 2-24-17
ENROLLMENT FORMS for the 2017-18 school year are enclosed in today’s folder. Please fill out and return as soon as possible. If you are unsure, please just state that on the form and return. We make staffing decisions and book orders based on response so it is extremely important to return these to school promptly. Thank you!
ASH WEDNESDAY MASS: On Wednesday, March 1st, all students and staff will attend Mass for Ash Wednesday. If you bring your child to school after 7:45 am, please bring them directly to church, as the school doors will be locked.
CRS RICE BOWL: Today in this folder you will find a Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl. The Rice Bowl can be easily utilized as a Lenten tool to devote our prayers, fasting, and almsgiving to transform the lives of those most in need. There is a Lenten calendar inside, videos available, and also an app to get Lenten inspiration right on your phone. You will find information about all these things inside the Bowl. PRAYER. FAST. GIVE.
GRADUATION HELP: Traditionally, the 7th grade families sponsor and host the 8th grade graduation reception. We are looking for parents to take charge of organizing this. We have a checklist in the office as a reference for your use. Please contact Rosie with your offer to help out. So far, Missy Evers has volunteered to help out. Thank you!
SCIENCE FAIR NEWS: The boards for your child’s science fair project (required for grades 5-8) are being provided to your child at school at no cost. The date for our local fair has been set for Tuesday, March 14th. The Diocesan Science Fair is scheduled for Friday, March 31st at Taos, for the three entries that will go on to compete there. Remember – your child’s entry must be in one of three categories – life science, physical science, or earth science. As you know, students will be working on their entries in class, but some work at home will be required. If your child wishes to use any colored ink on their exhibits, work will have to be printed at home, due to the fact that the school does not have colored printers.
CONGRATULATIONS JV BOYS!! We are proud to announce that the JV boys’ basketball team took 2nd place in the JV division of the Catholic Bowl, playing their final game against Taos on Sunday. The final score was 28-32, but it was definitely back and forth the whole game. The boys played hard and we are very proud of them! Go Cougars!
BASKETBALL UNIFORMS: Please return CLEAN uniform to the office, in a bag marked with your child’s name.
Please return your folder on MONDAY.
