CSW STUDENT DAY will be rescheduled. We are waiting to see if we can get someone to oversee the bowling alley so that all students may bowl. We are also still planning on getting the 5th & 6th graders out in the community to deliver treats. More information will be forthcoming as it becomes available.

CONGRATULATIONS to the 2nd GRADERS for winning the CSW door decorating contest! For their efforts, they will get a dress down day on February 21st, and also an extra recess. Special recognition also to the preschoolers, whose door won “runner up”!
HOME & SCHOOL MEETING CHANGED TO THIS WEEK! The Home & School meeting previously scheduled for Feb. 6th has been rescheduled to this Tuesday, Feb. 13th, due to the Ordination/Installation ceremony of the new bishop. We will have a potluck at 6:30 pm and begin the meeting at 7:00 pm. All attendees will earn a bonus dress down pass for their child/ren.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS for school children will be on Tuesday afternoons this Lent, at 2:15, beginning on Feb. 20th. Also, on Feb. 20, Father Greg will hear Confessions – grades 2-8. On Tuesday, Feb. 13, Father Greg will lead a Mardi Gras Prayer Service outside, at 7:50 am, after the morning prayer and pledge. Palms will be burned at this service to prepare the ashes for the next day, Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent.

ASH WEDNESDAY MASS: All school staff will be at church on Ash Wednesday. If you are bringing your child in late (after 7:50 am) please bring them directly to church, as all school doors will be locked.

GUN RAFFLE: Congratulations to the February winners, Lucas Kirkweg and Tony Hagerman! Lucas won the Taurus 605 .357 revolver. Tony won the Browning BI Lever Action .22. There are still tickets available, and will be available until all are sold. Of course, the sooner the ticket is purchased, the more chances you have to win. There are still 10 chances to win (2 per month). Next drawing will be March 15th, at the School Board meeting. Tickets are available through Mr. V at the school office, Greg Koetting, or Jay Harms. Thank you for your support.

SNOW DAY/FLU DAY MAKE-UP: Due to recent school closings, SCHOOL WILL BE IN SESSION ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 19TH, FRIDAY, MARCH 9TH, AND TUESDAY, APRIL 3RD. If we miss another day, it will be made up as a half day on Holy Thursday, March 29th.

REMINDER As previously announced, class Valentine’s/Fat Tuesday parties, are rescheduled to Tuesday, Feb. 13th at 2:00 pm. This will allow for the solemn observance of Ash Wednesday.

RICE BOWL: Today you are receiving the Rice Bowl. Please use it as a tool in your household to enhance your family Lenten experience. There is a Lenten calendar inside that may be used to help your family pray. You may return the Rice Bowls to the vestibule after Easter, with any money that you may have saved.

NEXT BOX TOP SUBMISSION will be at the end of February. Please keep saving Box Tops and send them in before that time.

SIX FLAGS READ TO SUCCEED: Grades K-6, please return your reading log to the classroom teacher by February 23rd.

8TH GRADE RETREAT: Permission forms and a flyer are in today’s folder. Please fill out form & return on Monday, along with the $8 fee, with checks made payable to OLOSS.  Remember, students must bring a sack lunch and drink. They may wear jeans (nice), but we are asking that they wear their school spirit shirts. Students will leave promptly at 7:45 and may return after the school day is over (3:30ish?). Please make arrangements for pick-up, if necessary.

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.

8TH GRADE GRADUATION – Saturday, May 12 – 5:00 pm Mass, with reception following.
