MOVIE DAY for St. George Students and Families! Sunday, October 20

All St. George students and families are invited to participate in our first Children's Movie Event on Sunday, October 20 around noon (after Children's mass)! We will have food and drinks for a small fee. Grade level representatives will have each student in their grade level vote for their movie choice. More info to come. (Please note, this event is at the same time as St. Mary's HS Open House event. Families of 7/8th graders, I strongly encourage you to go to St. Mary's instead of attending this event.)

Do you see us?

Ms. Hortencia and I have been spending a good amount of time visiting local businesses, getting the word out about our amazing little school, and putting our information out there for donations. Hopefully you will see the posters we put up at each location. We focused mostly on neighborhood businesses on El Dorado, Charter Way, and a few downtown.

We also visited each of the churches on the South/East side: St. Gertrudes, St. Edwards, St. Linus, and St. Mary's. How blessed we are to serve such wonderful communities.

Art Classes for St. George Students at St. Mary's High School

The art teacher at St. Mary's is running an art program just for our students in grades 2-8. Please see the form in your child's backpack or pick one up from the office. The class meets once a week on Thursdays from 3:30-5pm at St. Mary's High School (Room 12 in B-hall). The cost is $50 per child for each month. Classes begin in October.
