MANY THANKS to all who helped this week with Halloween and All Saints Day activities. We would like to thank The Corner Market, Evers Machine, & Mary’s Home Bank for sponsoring the Halloween Walk. For the lights at the cemetery, our thanks go out to Cindy Lepper, Jeremy & Beth Morris, Carla Morris, Marla Kirkweg, & the Cemetery Committee. We put out approximately 600 tea lights, with a donated cost of approximately $220. We received many supportive comments regarding the beautiful lights at the cemetery and plan on making it a new yearly tradition for the school. Thanks to the 7th & 8th graders, who put on a great skit about saints on Wednesday for the school children, and also to the 3rd & 4th grade students, who did such a great job with the All Saints Mass. And we can’t forget to thank our room parents – who always make our classroom parties so much fun!
MUFFINS WITH MOM: Remember, moms, that you are invited to school and Mass THIS THURSDAY, November 9th, for refreshments and fellowship. If mom can’t make it, invite a grandma or a sub-mom. All activities should wind up no later than 10:00 am, and probably before that.
NO SCHOOL this Monday, 11/6/17, due to teacher professional development at Helias.
PICTURE RETAKE/SPORTS/GROUPS: Picture retake day is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 28. We will also take sports pictures and group pictures that morning.
2nd PLACE CATHOLIC BOWL!!! Huge congratulations to our JV girls volleyball team, who won 2nd place over the weekend in the annual Catholic Bowl at Helias. The girls won their first two games over the weekend to get to the final two. The girls also won their game last Thursday night. That makes it a season of great ball playing! We are very proud of our LADY COUGARS!
UNIFORMS: All volleyball players – please return your clean uniform, in a bag, clearly marked with your name on it. We will hold these for group pictures, scheduled for November 28th.
GIRLS’ BASKETBALL PRACTICE officially begins this week. Since it is no longer open gym, students will not be able to participate unless all required items are turned in. Reminders were sent home on Thursday.
SANTA STORE: We have scheduled the Santa Store for Tuesday, December 5th. Please send in any gift items or gift bags that you may want to donate. We always need more dad and boy gifts. We will also need volunteers to help with bagging, wrapping, and shopping. Thanks for your help in making this a very fun activity for our students!
