Today the Kindergarten and First Grades joined the school community for First Friday Mass. They did a wonderful job attending their first Mass of the year and they had their 8th grade buddies by their side to help guide them through every step. We are so lucky to have time to celebrate the Mass together and we are so proud of all our students who attend Mass so reverently each week.
Our 7th and 8th graders did an outstanding job this week with their history projects and presentations. There was a wide range of important moments in history, including the 9-11 attacks, D-Day, Gettysburg, the Titanic, and so many more. The hard work was evident in each student's knowledge of their subject, their proficiency in public speaking, and in the detailed presentation boards and costumes. We thank Mr. Long for a teaching, planning, and hosting a fabulous History Fair.
Today we end the first quarter of school and move into the fall season and the second quarter. We have wonderful events coming up, including our annual Book Fair, Pizza Bingo, and more. Please make sure to look through all the updates and information below, and be sure to check our school calendar often. It can be found by scrolling down the homepage and on the private parent page.
May God go with you,
