News and Notes
I hope you had a wonderful three- day weekend!
As I mentioned last week, Catholic Schools week is January 29th to February 3rd. National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2023 is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service." We will kick it off with an open house/ Dinner and Bingo on January 28th. Information about Catholic schools' week and the Kickoff Celebration was sent last week. I am including it below.
The open house is for you to see what your child is learning and to visit their classroom and the school! We will also have an open gym with some fun activities. New parents for 23-24 will be invited to meet and mingle with you and your children! You must RSVP for the dinner by this Friday!! I have also included a google form to let us know that your child is interested in participating in the 5 o'clock Mass.
Don't forget that this Friday we have an 11:45 dismissal due to a faculty meeting.
Thank you and have a wonderful week!
