Hello, 8N Homeroom & Families!
1/24/17 It’s a Busy Time of Year!!
Catholic Schools Week begins next Sunday 1/29/17 with Open House. If your student is an Ambassador that day, please help them get to school on time, in full uniform!
Check the full calendar of the week’s events (sent home in the Family Envelope last week) – students are very focused on the special dress up theme for each day! And don’t forget – Wednesday is the annual GrandFriend’s Day Mass and Pancake Breakfast! Be sure and invite your “friend” (it can be any relative or close family friend) if you haven’t already done so. Mass begins earlier that day, an students must be in full uniform. Also remember that there is NO HOT LUNCH, all students must bring a lunch and drink from home (everyone is too full of pancakes anyway).
Finally, make sure your student is getting enough rest and drinking plenty of water – many have been sick this past week, so stay healthy!
1/6/17 Welcome Back! Happy New Year!
