A Message for Parents from HSA about Faculty Christmas Presents
As we have entered Advent and are preparing for Christmas, we know many of you send in gifts for our staff. Over the years, many of you have asked members of the HSA how to find out about teacher preferences to help guide your holiday shopping. Should any of you want specific ideas for your child's teachers, the HSA has compiled a spreadsheet (see below to download) of teacher preferences that may assist you in your holiday shopping. Please know that your gifts are in no way expected, but always very much appreciated by the teachers and staff.
We wish you all a blessed Christmas season!

Christmas Break for students
Students return to school
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.
attention middle school students!
Join our high school youth night with your ugly sweater and a $5 gag gift as we have our Christmas party on Sunday Dec. 18th after the 5pm mass!! RSVP by Thursday, Dec. 15th using the link below or by going to the youth website. We will be doing a gag gift exchange, but you are not required to participate. If you would like to join, please bring a $5 gift already wrapped. If we do not have enough volunteers, we many need a parent to stay as a chaperone- or we will not be able to allow more youth to join due to safe environment reasons. If you are Virtus trained, and would like to volunteer with the ministry, please contact the youth office.
If you would like to donate or aid in providing food for the event, please contact the youth office.
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!
