CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK WRAP UP
What a wonderful week we had. Mother Nature almost let us have 5 full days! Students practiced sportsmanship through board games and our friendly volleyball competition. Our annual Bees were a success with repeat winners. Congratulations Colin and Audric. The Talent Show was just amazing. I’m very impressed by all of our students that took a risk and showed off their unique talents this year. I can’t wait for next year. We finished the school week with our annual Faculty/Student Volleyball Game. There were lots of laughs, cheers and fun by everyone. Look for those pictures later this weekend!!
Thank YOU to everyone that helped with our Pasta Supper. It’s always great to celebrate when our Home Town Boys are headed to the Super Bowl. There was lots of Red, White and Blue and the cutest snowmen centerpieces. We served over 435 people! The food was delicious and everyone keeps coming back for more- and bringing their friends. It certainly takes a village to put this successful event together.
We will continue our Coin Wars through next week- our jars are feeling a little light and we want to be able to purchase some gift cards to help our fellow teachers at Crocker School who lost everything in their flood. Please send in all of those pennies and any loose change you have lying around the house. The winner is yet to be determined!!!
REGISTRATION for 2018-2019
We are half way through the 2017-2018 school year and it’s already time to start thinking about next year! We are excited for another event filled year with lots of learning and spreading our wings. It’s hard to believe that I will begin my 5th year in September!
Please take a moment to read the letter from Father Fred as we prepare for registration. Registration Forms and Tuition Information will be emailed home and available on the website. We have a simpler registration form for Returning Students and a separate application for returning students. Please make sure to update any address and phone number changes.
We currently have wait lists for several classes and would like parents to re-register as soon as possible but if you know for some reason your child will NOT be returning next year, please let Mrs. French know as that may open up a spot for someone else.
