TRIP Orders

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22

After years of helping school families make a dent in their tuition, our TRIP program will be winding down. We will still place orders every Monday that we have school until late March. The last day for orders will be March 22 so that credits may be applied to outstanding tuition payments.

8th Grade Graduation Photos

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 24

This is a dress up day for 8th graders, as photos will be taken both with and without caps and gowns. Boys should wear a shirt and tie--sport coats, suits, or sweaters are optional. Girls should avoid wearing their hair up, turtlenecks or high necked tops. Slacks and skirts may show in some poses. All students should avoid wearing shades of green as they will be photographed against a green screen. No upfront payment is necessary--a proof will be sent home with package and ordering instructions. There will be a $10 charge for retakes.

1:00 p.m. Dismissal

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 24

Extended Day will be available free of charge until 3:00 p.m., with regular rates applying after that.

All-School Picture Day!

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26

Receipts dated through March 1 are eligible. We will accept them until March 5 and then we must make a final tally. Thank you so much for all of your assistance with this. And a big HUGE special thanks to Mrs. Rivas for managing the project!

Don't Forget to Turn in Your Pot of Gold Stubs!

Families should have received two tickets in the mail back in January (if you did not, please reach out to Mrs. Gray). Remember, you already paid for these with your Fundraising Fee, so you can choose to resell them or put your own name on them and turn them in! Think you can help us out and sell a few more? Five packs are available at the Parish Office for checkout (no prepayment required), and for every five you sell you have a chance at another $500. Give us a call at 895-6700-- we can even drop them in the mail to you. Who's feeling lucky?
