You're Kind of a Big Deal

What a fun week we are having! I love this week of celebrating our Catholic School. Congratulations to all our Academic Olympics participants: Grace, Anabella, Yohan, Nathan and Luke. We are so proud of you.


Please help your actor study lines. It is really important that they practice these out loud and know the cues. We are getting close to costuming; this is always an exciting time.


For Mardi Gras Tuesday, please send in a cake or cupcakes for our fifth grade cake walk. Please send them on disposable trays that don't need to be returned to you. This is always a very popular "booth" at the Mardi Gras festival.


As we move in to Lent, we will begin planning for our Shadow Stations of the Cross on Good Friday. Mark your calendar so you don't miss this very moving, prayerful event.
