What's Happening week of April 8, 2019

3 Blue Light Specials next week! - canned vegetables, canned fruit, and crackers

Dear Parents,

As we learned in Mass a few weeks ago, Lent is built on the pillars of prayer, fasting, and

alms-giving. Our students may practice voluntary fasting by giving up something for the

season, but many members of our parish and wider community have trouble accessing the

basic food supplies that we all take for granted.

Our food drive has benefited immensely these at-risk families! Additionally, our students

have been able to measure the lasting effects of their service to others. They may be

competing for points in our school, but each item means food on the table for someone else.

The Matthew 25 Food Pantry is extremely thankful to all who have been donating to the

Lenten food drive. The students are learning from your examples the importance of giving

back and the true meaning of Lenten service.

Next week there will be 3 Blue Light Specials. They will be canned vegetables, canned fruit,

and crackers. This will be our last week for our food drive. Let’s make it the best yet!

March Madness Tournament of Books CHAMPION!

It's been an exciting month of reading books for our March Madness Tournament. We narrowed it down to "Hooway for Wodney Wat" & "Not Quite Narwhal". Mrs. D. and Mrs. Campbell read the finalists to all of our students this morning before the big reveal!

and the WINNER was:

"Not Quite Narwhal"

Spring Picture Day

We will have our Lifetouch Spring Photos on Wednesday, April 10th

This is an Out Of Dress Day- as our Spring pictures are always out of dress. We will send flyers home a few days before. You can choose your pose and background. ALL students will have their picture taken unless you send in the Form with a note you do NOT want your child’s photo taken or even a separate note excusing your child from photos.

There is no money needed on picture day. In a couple of weeks, you will get a packet of pictures. You then pay for the pictures that you want and return the ones you do not want. We suggest you return them ASAP if you do not plan to purchase them so they do not get misplaced.

Preschool- All preschool students are invited to come have their photo taken. We will get preschool students who do not come on Wednesdays- in for their photos whenever you arrive between 9:00-10:30.
