Despite not being able to celebrate our full-scheduled week of Catholic Schools Week, we did have the opportunity this week to participate in the activities that were originally scheduled.   Wednesday, students were able to dress up as their favorite book character.   Thursday, we recognized our Saints of Color.   Friday, Fun in the Classrooms.   Thank you to all staff members who were flexible and helped make this week what it was intended for:   To recognize the great and wonderful things that are happening in our Catholic Schools across the nation!  In conjunction with our Catholic Schools Week activities, we also have been participating in daily activities that promote the successes our African American heritage during Black History Month.  We are doing t-shirt sales, morning trivia, bulletin boards throughout our school and discussion and curriculum within our classrooms!

  4. Just a reminder that students are not to bring big bags of chips/snacks and juices to school UNLESS the snacks and drinks are part of their sack lunch.
  5. BE CAREFUL!  Our custodial staff is out every morning salting our sidewalks to make sure they are safe.   Still, with the snow melting during the day and freezing at night, it makes for some difficult conditions, especially in the morning.   Take your time!
