Thanks for a great CSW!
1. We raised $960 for St. Vincent de Paul via the Penny War. The 6th grade will get a dress down day later this month for raising $209.62 (and 6K owes 6W BIG TIME!)
2. We collected over 250 pairs of socks for the Blessings in a Backpack program
3. We donated 8 boxes of food to the Salvation Army at the Souper Bowl at King's Lanes.
4. Our Soup Supper collected over $1,800 in free will donations!
AND, it's not just me who thinks it was a great week! Check out this email from Courtney Burbach:
I am not sure who deserves the kudos for the planning of Catholic Schools week, but since we have been at the school, this was the best Catholic Schools week we have experienced. I have to tell you that as a parent to see how excited my boys were every single day (even the weekend prior to) about what they all got to do for Catholic Schools week was awesome! They are so proud to celebrate that week and that they go to a Catholic school and I love seeing that come out of them. It reminded me of so many great memories I had as a kid growing up in Catholic schools and all the activities we used to do as well.
You all don’t get told thank you enough I am sure. I just wanted you to know that as a parent and family, we absolutely loved the change this year to make this more fun and memorable for the kids! So to all involved in the planning, you deserve a BIG THANK YOU!

Watch this little guy! You will agree with him!
The other sheet of paper is some information about tuition costs, expenses, and tuition assistance information. Another thing that would be a good idea to be familiar with!
I did get a quote from Love Signs about getting some math facts on our stairs for next fall (If you don't know what I'm talking about look below). We need to decide which math facts to use and in what order they should be and if we should include the answers. I'd also like to do something with religion on the middle set of stairs (10 commandments? 8 beatitudes?)
We are also sending a "goodie-basket" to the HR department at Tejas Tubular, the new plant that is coming to Norfolk. If you have any Norfolk Catholic items (notepads, pens, etc) that are just sitting in your room gathering dust, please let me know.
Our next staff meeting is not until Feb. 19 due to P/T conferences.
Next Week: who's doing the PB pledge? 5J or 5F? Let me know
Wednesday, Feb. 12 1:30 Dismiss for P/T Conferences
Friday, Feb. 14 Jeans Day
Great link for ideas to make conferences more meaningful--for you, for you parents, and for your students! Lots of links--pick one or two and read them!
