All School Mass

We are holding an ALL SCHOOL MASS on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 9:30 am. After Mass, our 1st, 2nd, and 8th grades will be leading a living rosary. ​​A living rosary is when people are used to represent each bead of the rosary. Each person leads one prayer of the rosary. Everyone is welcome to attend. The month of October each year is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary since the liturgical feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated on October 7.

Family Faith Groups

During our time together on Wednesday, teachers have been assigned a small group of children from different grade levels to create a “Family Faith Group.” This month we are learning about the fruit of the Spirit: Goodness. We will be sharing our “goodness” by creating cards for the residents of the Ossian Senior Hospice along with shut-ins from our faith community. This also gives us an opportunity to pray for each recipient of our cards.


If your child did not purchase headphones at the beginning of the year, would you please pick up a pair that has a 3.5mm audio cable. Thank you!

School Dress Code

Just a friendly reminder that shorts and sandals may be worn April 1 through October 15th.

Care & Concern

Thank you to those that supported our coin collection for families in need during our Homecoming festivities. We collected $140.55 and it will be used to purchase needed items.

Fire Prevention Week Oct. 3-9

This year’s FPW campaign, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” works to educate everyone about the different sounds the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. Knowing what to do when an alarm sounds will keep you and your family safe. When an alarm makes noises – a beeping sound or a chirping sound – you must take action.
