We hope everyone had a fabulous Holiday break! Once again, thank you for your generous contributions towards the Cardinal Pacelli Staff Christmas Fund. Our contributions totaled nearly $16,000!!! Cards and gifts were distributed to over 50 staff members with a letter which recognized all donors.
Furthermore, thanks to all of our Christmas Boutique shoppers! The PTO will make a donation of $2,000 to Saint Vincent DePaul with the income generated through sales this year! Thank you to Emily Hauser and the MANY parent volunteers for making this Christmas-Shopping Extravaganza possible for our kids!

Catholic Schools Week
We are looking forward a fun-filled week of events in celebration of Catholic Schools Week, January 29th through February 4th! This year we have partnered with LaSoupe to bring the service-aspect of our theme into practice. Ms Merret Collister, a representative from LaSoupe, shared various ways in which LaSoupe is working to bridge the gap between food, waste, and local hunger within our city. Be on the lookout for additional information about our Collection-Competition for LaSoupe as well as communications regarding Catholic Schools Week Volunteer Needs to come.
