ST. GERTRUDE SCHOOL NEWSLETTER
FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
It was really nice to see the sun today even though it was very misleading... brrrr! I am ready for warmer temperatures. Since I was out sick last Friday I will be picking K-8 citizen of the week tomorrow. I was impressed with how polite the first and second grade were in the cafeteria today.
Please remember to send in your registration form and fee as soon as possible in order for us to make staffing decisions for next school year.
Please feel free to join us at our all-school Ash Wednesday Mass on February 26 at 8:45 a.m.
Have a great weekend,
