Catholic Schools Week 2021

Prayer Service

Father Wolf and Father Vic will be away all next week. Instead of school mass, we will have prayer services for both groups of students. Students may wear their Catholic Schools Week dress day outfit or dress in their normal school uniform.

Coin Drive for Bolivia!

A donor has agreed to match any donations collected on Monday up to $200!

Check pockets, couch cushions and under car seats! Our coin drive that ends Friday the 6th is going to support the Friends of Bolivia orphanage. Usually our 5th graders help raise money for this cause through the school store, which did not get to open this year. Their goal that they met the last couple of years is $1,000.

If you are interested in making a matching donation for one day’s collection or the duration of the coin drive, please contact Students may drop off change in the jug by the office or in the jug by Mrs. Wilson & Mrs. Price’s room until Feb. 6th.
