FAW Annual Giving Campaign
This quarter, some of our middle school students are operating a school store. They are learning how to take inventory, markup items for profit, and manage the ins and outs of a business. The school store will be open every Wednesday during their elective class time. Items cost anywhere from 25 cents to $8. Please encourage your children to visit the school store! Kindly send in an envelope with money, marked with your child’s name and “School Store” so the middle schoolers know who to expect this week.

January Virtue Winners - Gratitude
March Virtue: Mercy
Each month, our whole school focuses on the same virtue as we hope to grow closer to Jesus by imitating His life and virtues. Students and families also learn more about the saints who exemplify these good habits. This month we are learning about the virtue of mercy. Please join FAW during the month of March by modeling how you care for those who suffer.
