St. George Christmas Presentation, Boutique, and Bingo - SAVE the DATE!

Ms. Salas, our aftercare teacher and wonderful parent of a 3rd grade student, is organizing a craft fair on December 14. If you are crafty or sell a product and want to have a booth, please call the school and leave a message (or let Ms. Salas know).

The Christmas Boutique on December 14 is right before our BINGO event and on the same weekend as our Children's Mass. We are purposely trying to group our events together to make it easier for families to participate. Please plan on attending and let your families know. The students will participate in Christmas Caroling and possibly a performance at the Boutique.
