Happy First Friday in September!
Today I had the opportunity to attend to Mass with the students in grades 3 to 8, and it was the perfect way to start our day and end our first week back at school. We are so lucky to have Fr. Rob and Fr. James to provide our school with an 8:30am Mass each Friday. As we move forward each week we will continue to include all our students and return to a weekly Mass with all our K-8 classes again. It certainly helps us to feel closer to our Lord, each other, and to a school life we treasure. We are off to a great start of our year. Fr. Rob, Mr. Long and I sincerely thank you for partnering with us in your child's faith formation and education.
Enjoy the long Labor Day weekend!
May God go with you all,
New Information & Reminders:
Next week if your child(ren) have all the regular fall uniform pieces from School Uniforms by Tommy Hilfiger please begin sending them in that uniform on Tuesday, September 7. If you are still missing pieces, no worries, continue to use the PE uniform until your items arrive. We will plan to have everyone in uniform by Monday, September 13, but we understand you may not have all that you need so please continue with PE as needed. Hopefully everything will be available to arrive in the next week or so.
Permission to walk forms:
If you have a student(s) who will be walking home from school, please fill out this Google form by next Tuesday, Sept. 7 by 8:00am so that we have all the walking permissions for our students. If you sent Mrs. Reilly this information already, please fill out the form as well so that we have all the information safely and securely in one place.
