CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK: Many thanks to all who helped so much with all the great activities this past week. It was gratifying to celebrate with all the school families and parishioners on Sunday with the Mass, magic show, and luncheon. And then throughout the week, with all the activities – the army presentation and the patriotic things we did on Monday, the WONDERFUL food and gifts sent in for the staff on Tuesday – (so appreciated!), the Lifeflight coming in, the playing of cards with the seniors and the making & delivering snacks to our community on Wednesday, the Vocation Day Thursday, having fun with Father Greg, Greg Monnig, & Sr. Julie. It was a wonderful and memorable week! It took many people to cover all aspects of this week – too many to name without risking leaving someone out, but just know it is APPRECIATED! Let us rededicate ourselves to our mission – providing a faith filled Catholic education to our students!
STUDENT DAY of CSW will be made up at a later date, due to the closing on Friday.
