ANNUAL BENEFIT DINNER

Next Saturday is the night!

Thanks to those of you who returned your money for the two tickets/fundraising fee for the March 5th Annual Benefit Dinner. As you are aware, each family is required to purchase or sell two tickets to the dinner, or pay a $100.00 fundraising fee.  Tickets that will not be used should be returned to school.  This will help us have a more accurate meal count for the caterer.

Thanks, also, to those who have volunteered to donate a basket or silent auction item. We are in need of many more, so please consider sharing your “time or treasure” with us to make this Benefit Dinner the very best.  Joy is in the giving!

Baskets are on display now.  For those who plan to donate a basket or another item, please send it no later than Thursday, March 3.

***Remember, we are also selling raffle tickets for a chance to win $10,000! Only 300 will be sold at $100/ticket

AUCTION ITEM

Sister Thea will again sell “Non-Uniform Coupon Books.”  By purchasing a coupon book, the student or teacher can be out of uniform one day a month on a designated day.  Cost of the coupon book is $20.00 per student/teacher or $30.00 per family. The students will bring the monthly coupon to school on the day designated as “Out of Uniform Day”. Coupon books can be purchased the night of the Annual Benefit Dinner or up to the beginning of the next school year.  Coupon books that are paid for at the Benefit Dinner will be distributed at the beginning of the next school year.  The administration will set a cut-off date for when purchasing the books will end.  Administration will determine which day of the month will be the “Out of Uniform Day”.  It will be the same day each month.  So be sure to stop by the table at the Annual Benefit Dinner Auction and sign up for your student/s.

MASS

Mass this week will be led by Grade 8. Know that you are always welcomed to come and celebrate with us.

PEACEMAKER

February’s Peacemaker Activity will be this Friday, February 26.  We will celebrate with a Talent Show in the chapel starting at 1:30pm. Students have already auditioned and should be “practicing, practicing, practicing!” what they will present. If your child was a Peacemaker throughout February, they may be out of uniform and enjoy time in the chapel.  Those who were not peacemakers will be in uniform and attend a Second Step class to help build on the skills needed to stay a peacemaker.

***Please join us in the chapel for our very first Talent Show!

EARLY DISMISSAL

School will be dismissed at 12:30p.m. on Monday, March 7, because of our regular staff meeting.  There will be breakfast, lunch, and bus service, but no Extended Day.
