April 2023 Newsletter

On Behalf of PTO

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter Break! Now that Spring has sprung let's get ready for some more fun as we move into our final months of the 2022-2023 school year! We are so thankful for the many Pacelli Volunteers who have stepped up to lead the fun this year!

First, we want to extend a huge THANK YOU to Jen Schildmeyer and Jaime Lorey for the SPECTACULAIRE Mother-Daughter Brunch! We are so grateful for all the time, energy, and creativity you put forth to continue this time-honored tradition for the Ladies of Pacelli!

Furthermore, we want to express our most sincere gratitude for the leadership of Frannie Dibattista in chairing our Pacelli Mother-Son outing once again this year! She truly hit a home-run with her planning of the event on Kids' Reds Fan Day!

Additionally, we want to give a huge shout-out to Beth Hoskins for her leadership with the Jr. High Events! The Glow-Tastic, Spring-Chic parties she lead undoubtably cultivated fabulous memories for our Jr. High students. We are so very thankful for her willingness to step-up!

Spring is loaded with so many fun, social events for our school community. Please mark your calendars…and let’s all have a good time! Please see details about upcoming events below. Thank you!

We Need Your Help to Bring Back the Beloved 4-Hole Funnel Ball Game on the Playground!

As a reminder, we are initiating a partnership with Boosterthon this Spring to determine if the online platform will work for our Pacelli community as a viable replacement for the Magazine Sale, our primary fundraiser, in the Fall.
