Good News Book Fair
This week we will have our Good News Book Fair! Students will be attending the Book Fair during their STREAM class. Due to the storm, we were not able to receive our delivery until yesterday, so today will be set-up day, and we will extend the Book Fair through next Monday. Parents may come shop with their children during their STREAM time, as long as the parent has received volunteer clearance from the Diocese.

Middle School parents, your children are in class until 3:05 and then they return to homeroom. Please plan to pick them up no earlier than 3:10. Our holding area is filling up by 2:55 with middle school parents who have arrived too early. If you come for your children prior to 3:10, we will need to have you circle around the line again. Thank you for your cooperation!
Parents of students in grades 3-5, your children are not dismissed until 2:55. Please plan to pick them up no earlier than that. If you arrive prior to 2:55 for a 3rd-5th grade student, you will be asked to circle around the lot again.
Finally, if your child is at Angels After Hours, and you are coming to regular pick-up, please designate that in the PikMyKid app.
Thank you for your help in getting our students dismissed promptly and safely.

Anyone who tests positive must stay at home for 5 full days before returning to school on Day 6, provided that there has been no fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines and that other symptoms are improving. (Please note that the first day of symptoms is considered Day 0.)
Siblings of positive cases may continue coming to school as long as they are not exhibiting ANY symptoms. Please use good judgment when sending siblings to school based on the amount of exposure they have had with the positive sibling.
Youth Ministry: Please be sure to register your youth using the link below so you can be added onto our weekly email list. Middle school events will occur in the coming months as we accumulate more adult volunteers but please still register your youth so you can be updated about possible events occurring in the ministry, at the parish or in the diocese!
Young Adult Ministry: We are combined with the young adults from St. Paul Catholic Church, so events alternate between both parishes. Register to be put on our young adult email list to hear about upcoming events!
Adult Volunteers: If you are interested in volunteering with our youth ministry, please use the link below to inquire about becoming a part of our adult volunteer team! There are many ways you can be involved- check out the youth website to find out more!
