Grandparent's Mass

Wednesday, September 15 is our annual Grandparent's Mass at 9:30. This year we are trying something a bit different by celebrating Mass outside at the Ossian Pavilion. Grandparents are asked to bring a lawn chair and they may bring one for their grandchild too. We will be serving a continental breakfast after Mass. If a grandparent cannot attend, a special guest may come in their place. Students will be bused from Spillville for this special event and the rest of the students will be walking to the park. Our rain location is St. Francis DeSales Church.

Homecoming Pep Rally

Students at the Ossian site will be walking to South Winn at 12:40 on Thursday, September 16. The cheerleaders will be hosting a prep rally to get the kids fired up for the Homecoming football game next Friday night against Starmont. The Homecoming court will be introduced. Congratulations to several former CFS & De Sales students: Emily Michels, Janessa Zweibahmer, Ruthie Frana, Logan Hageman, Nick Holien, Sam Conway, and Trey Kriener.
