"Walk in Faith with Mercy and Grace"

Week of April 11- April 15, 2016

Hello Parents,

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! The Flat Stanley/Stella project is due this week 4/11-4/15. We will be presenting the projects as they come in. Your pictures can be put on a poster board, put into an album, power point, or even made into a movie. Please make sure your child is knowledgable of the locations their Flat Stanley/Stella visited so they can present it to the class.

Just a reminder: Registration for the 2016-2017 school year is due April 15th. Please go to the school website and click on admissions. Follow the steps to make sure your child is registered for the new school year :)

I also wanted to let you know that our First Eucharist Retreat to the Sacred Heart Retreat Center is on Wednesday April 27. We will be going as a class. Parents will be dropping off and picking up.

Thank you for all your support!


Miss Ekno and Mrs. Brown
