From the Principal

Just a few friendly reminders concerning the afternoon pick-up:

1. Adults should not get out of cars during afternoon pick-up. If a child needs to be buckled up, please pull through into the rectory parking lot and buckle them in at that point.

2. If your child is not outside, then we require you to park your car and use the crosswalk to find them. We can no longer locate them for you since we have to focus on the safety of the children outside and ready for pick-up.

3. If your lane fills up, DO NOT BLOCK other lanes. You must pull into the overflow lot.

4. Please be kind and patient with teachers, parents, grandparents, and others. Pick-up can go smoothly if we all have patience.

5. Families, if you have grandparents or other family members picking up your child, then please share these reminders.

Many blessings,

Mrs. Molly Hibler.

We are looking forward to our Santa Shop scheduled for December 3rd-December 6th!

How Santa Shop Works: Students will be able to visit the Santa Shop at school during assigned times to shop and purchase gifts for the holidays. Gifts range in price from 50 cents to approximately $6. For students that wish to participate, envelopes will be sent home the week of 11/26 with each child. You can use the Shopping List Envelope provided to help your child plan their shopping list.·

SANTA SHOP VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! The more the Merrier! We are in need of volunteers to help our shop be successful! Volunteers will help the children shop, cash out, or restock the shop. You can sign up for as many time slots as you are able to help with. Please visit the Sign Up Genius Link to participate.

A note from Mrs. Januzzi

COLD WEATHER IS COMING. Please make sure your child is coming to school with a coat, hat and gloves (when snow starts and boots) We go outside as long as the temperature feels like it is 20 degrees and above.
