Holy Child Chapel Update

We are moving along with the design of the Holy Child Chapel and we are getting close to the point of construction. There are several items we still need (which is below) and once we have all the items in place, we will set up a day for construction/painting, etc...

The items we need are:

2 gallons Valspar paint 5010-8 Gypsy Teal Glossy (from Lowe's)

2 Kneeling Angel Statues (for next to the Tabernacle) cost is approximately $800

Benches/carpentry-We are still waiting on the cost of building the benches, but we are looking for sponsors.

Curtains (Price and design still being determined)

Rug (Price and design still being determined).

Holy Water bowl (specific design we are looking for-we have the holder, just not the bowl)

Corpus for a Crucifix (specific design we are looking for-We have the cross, just need a corpus).

Next week the room will be prepped for painting.

If you would like to help with any of these items, please let Mr. Steffens know at

Spirit Dress Friday's

There has been some confusion today about Spirit Dress Friday. Yes, it is every Friday unless we put out a specific notice that it has changed for a Friday. It is not just half-day Fridays, Spirit Dress is for every Friday.

We need those box tops!!

Choir News!

Hi Santo Nino Angel Families,

Hooray! Choir will start next week! August 28, afterschool until 4:30. Snack will be provided. I release around 4:25 so that students can get their backpacks and we head outside for pickup. Students not picked up by 4:40 will be walked to Aftercare. If your child will report directly to Aftercare after choir, please let me know at

Snack provided for the entire year is $15 per child. If you choose to send your child with their own snack, please no nuts. Please bring your $15 to me at your earliest convenience.

Attached you will find our Parish Visit/Event Calendar and Expectations Agreement.

Thank you! I’m so excited!

God bless you,

Tardy & Drop Off/Pick-up

We have not been counting tardies the first 2 weeks. On Monday August 27th, we will start counting students tardy. If your student is going to be tardy, you must come in and sign them in.

At student drop off/Pick-up, please do not be talking nor texting on your phone. This is a hazard to our students.

Lastly, please do not park in the red-zone. This really slows down the traffic. We try really hard to get cars moved in and out as quickly as possible and with your assistance, we can!
