Dear Catholic East Elementary Families,
We are thrilled to share the incredible dedication our scholars demonstrated during their recent MAP testing sessions, embodying the value of "positive" with their unwavering "can do" attitude. Many of our students at SSPP have been diligently working on their Text Dependent Analysis assessments in English Language Arts. As we approach Catholic Schools Week next week, we warmly invite you to join us for Mass this Sunday at the cathedral, our special prayer service at SSPP on Thursday, and our open house Tuesday along with a community meeting on Monday. Your trust in entrusting your scholars to us is truly appreciated, and we look forward to celebrating the achievements of our students together. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
