Fabulous Fourth Flyer

St. Joseph School "Walk in Faith with Mercy and Grace"

Updates from Mrs. Knapp

-First Flight Field Trip is TOMORROW Tuesday, February 23rd at the Honda Center! Inside the Honda Center it will be a bit chilly. Students may bring any type of jacket to wear with their uniform. I also suggest wearing pants or tights to keep your legs warm. Students may bring a small bag (for example: a cinch bag) to carry their items for the day. Students need to bring a SACK LUNCH and drink. Please do not bring lunch pails. We will be leaving between 8:30 and 9am and returning by 1:30 pm.

-Thank you for everyone for attended our Stations of the Cross. Hopefully we will have a link to view our presentation this week. I was very proud of every student. Their hard work turned into a beautiful presentation. I received many compliments on how wonderfully they read and presented! YAY!
