The Borromeo Bulletin #43

Thoughts from Dr. Voelkl...
Our students in Grades 3 - 8 did an amazing job working their way through testing next week. We are looking forward to a more "routine" week ahead! Alas, there will be A LOT of excitement in the air as final picnic preparations are made. Please read through the newsletter carefully for information related to final ticket purchases, volunteer opportunities etc.
Borromeo continues to be a wonderful community of faith and family. We are grateful for all of the families that spent time supporting our school at this weekend's Oktoberfest and who will again offer their time, talent and treasure at next weekend's picnic. Picnic weekend is a favorite among many!
Continued prayers for all of our families and beautiful weather for the week and weekend ahead,
