Early Childhood Screening

If you have a son or daughter who is between the ages of 3 and starting Kindergarten, now is the time to make your appointment for Early Childhood Screening! This is an important screening for both your child’s physical development (they screen both hearing and vision) and their emotional and academic growth. Appointments typically take 1 hour and your child will enjoy working with 1-2 specialists (depending on the district). Below you will find the links to sign up depending on what school district your mailing address falls into. ***Remember, this is highly recommended for our preschool enrollment as well as our Kindergarten class.

Writing Contest

Writing Contest entries are due next Friday, February 28!

The Center for Mission has sponsored an annual writing contest for more than a decade as a way to encourage students to reflect on their baptismal call to mission, and how their everyday interactions with others bear witness to the Gospel of Christ. Each year we receive hundreds of entries, and are looking forward to reading this year's reflections on "How can you follow Christ's example and treat everyone equally?" Children in grades 1-3 may submit drawings illustrating their response.

Entries can be written in English or Spanish, and submitted to rickerj@archspm.org, or mailed to the Center for Mission, 777 Forest St., St. Paul, MN 55106. Cash prizes are awarded to winners in each of the four age divisions. For complete submission guidelines, please see the flyer.
