We are The Way, The Truth, and The Life.

PINWHEELS FOR PEACE

Our students and staff joined over 3.5 million people across the globe in participating in the annual Pinwheels for Peace project as part of the International Day of Peace.  During our Morning Prayer today, class pinwheels graced the front lawn of our school with images and messages of peace and harmony. The thought is that the breeze will capture these messages and carry them throughout the world. May peace one day prevail on Earth!

MASS

Mass tomorrow will be led by the fifth graders.  All are welcomed to attend.

TESTING

Students in Grades 2-8 will take the Iowa Assessment Test starting this Monday, September 28, and going through Wednesday, October 7. Students will normally be tested in the morning when they are more alert.  In order to give your child every opportunity to do well, please make sure they get plenty of rest, eat a good breakfast and get to school on time.  Thank you for your cooperation.

BUSSES

Thank you to all the parents/guardians, friends, staff, and students who came to support us Wednesday in court. The judge listened carefully to both sides of the issue and is now taking all things under consideration. We will let you know when a decision is made. Keep a-praying!

PEACEMAKER ACTIVITY

The September Peacemaker activity will tie in with our “Pinwheels for Peace” theme as peacemakers in grades K-8 create designs about peace with colored chalk on the blacktop.  This activity will take place on Wednesday, September 30 from 2-3pm. Students who have not received an orange WIN slip in September will be able to be out of uniform, enjoy a snack, and participate in the fun. Did your child stay a Peacemaker? Please feel free to come and enjoy this event and create your own vision of peace.

NON-UNIFORM COUPON BOOKS

At last year’s Annual Benefit Dinner, coupon books were sold that allowed students to be out of uniform an extra day each month. The cost was $20/individual student or $30/family. Would you like your child to be out of uniform one extra day a month? There are some coupon books left over, so if you are interested, please call the office and let Ms. Francine know. Send in the money and the coupon book will be yours!

EXTENDED DAY-SESSION 2 

Session 1 of Extended Day ends this Friday, September 25. Session 2 begins on Monday, September 28 and ends on Friday, November 6.  The cost for the 6-week session is $50.00 for one child and $70.00 per family. Forms were sent home last week and are due no later than this Monday.
