Principal's Message - Jan. 20th

Happy Wednesday!

Thank you so much to everyone who has sent in their Intent to Return forms. We are excited to see so many coming back to the office so quickly! We are already busy making plans for next year and the information that you provide is critical for planning purposes. If you haven't returned your form, please do so by this Friday!! For more information about the current and upcoming school year, please attend tonight's State of the School meeting at 6:30 pm. Also, information about registration fees and the timeline of events is located below. Check it out!!

Yesterday, I had an opportunity to attend the Mass for Life (celebrated by Archbishop Sartain) and the March for Life in Olympia. Mrs. Silva, Fr. Wichert, and I brought the 7th and 8th graders from Visitation and Holy Rosary down to the Mass and the rally on the bus. It was a wonderful event and so inspiring seeing people really celebrating their faith and making their voices heard.

Have a wonderful week!

Katie Dempsey
