SNOW DAY MAKE-UP: Due to the inclement weather & missing school on Tuesday, SCHOOL WILL NOW BE IN SESSION ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 19TH, a designated snow make-up day.
GUN RAFFLE: The first drawing will be at the dance tomorrow night, January 20th. Tickets will be available before the drawing at the dance. There will still be tickets available after the first drawing, and until all are sold.
ENVELOPES NEEDED: If any out there have access at work or elsewhere, to business size envelopes that are no longer needed, we are in need of some. In the past, we have had many donated to use for sending home bills, etc, Sometimes when the state changes offices or an address changes, old envelopes with obsolete return addresses are disposed of. We could put them to good use.
MASS PARTS FOR CSW MASS: In the folder today, you will find student ministry assignments for our celebration of Mass to kick off Catholic Schools Week, at 10:00 am on Sunday, Jan. 28th. Students were scheduled by return receipt of the principal’s letter in last week’s folder. If your family is planning on being at this Mass, it is not too late to participate – just send a note in the folder, and we will give your child a part in Mass.

DUE TO THE HIGH RISK OF FLU this year, and in our effort to contain transmission, any student exhibiting signs of the flu, which include, but is not limited to: fever, chills, nonproductive cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle and body aches, headache and fatigue, and in some cases, vomiting & diarrhea, will be sent to the office and parents called for pick up. IF YOUR CHILD EXHIBITS ANY OF THESE SIGNS AT HOME – NO MATTER HOW MILD – PLEASE KEEP THEM HOME AS A PRECAUTION. If your child has the flu, doctors generally recommend that they do not return to school for one week. We are hearing of schools having to shut down completely because of widespread flu, and we are hoping that we will not have to do so. Thank you for helping us keep the flu away!
PLEASE RETURN YOUR FOLDER ON MONDAY!
