2. Catholic Schools Week kicks off today with our student-led pep rally at North Park this afternoon. TONIGHT, the 8th grade students take on the ICSJ faculty in our annual students versus teachers basketball game. Doors open at 5:45, and the fun starts at 6. For more details on dress down days and related events, please see the packet sent home with your child last week. It's going to be a lot of fun!
3. Join the ICSJ community at Family Mass THIS Sunday, January 31st, at 11 a.m. (St. Joseph church). Fr. Larry is asking that students wear their uniforms to be a visible sign to our larger worshiping community. All of the teachers are looking forward to seeing a GREAT turnout of families.
4. The 8th graders participated in their Confirmation retreat last Sunday, and this upcoming Friday is the BIG DAY! We are so thrilled to witness these young men and women receiving the sacrament of Confirmation. Thank you to all parents, sponsors, family, and friends who have made this day possible. Way to go 8th grade!
5. As always, remember to review and sign your child's red folder. The following assessments will be sent home from me this week:
8th Religion: none
6th Religion: none
6th Language Arts: pronoun quiz, prefix quiz
