We will have our Schoolwide Student Retreat on Wednesday, April 5th.

PK and 5th grade - purple shirts

Kindergarten and 6th grade - green shirts

1st grade and 7th grade - blue shirts

2nd grade and 8th grade - red shirts

3rd and 4th grade - yellow shirts


For dress down days, jeans are acceptable but cannot have any rips or tears. No hats or flipflops are to be worn to school. No tank top style tops are allowed. Only shorts that are Bermuda or Capri in length are permitted. Shoulders, midriffs, and backs must be covered (no cut-out style clothes) at all times. Leggings are not allowed unless the shirt reaches the mid-thigh area. Clothing should not have any messages or words that would be considered inappropriate for a Catholic school.

Adoration

As a reminder, during the season of Lent, we will be having Adoration in the PCA Chapel every Tuesday after our Children's Mass from 10:30-2:00. Parents are welcome to attend Adoration during this time as well. There is a Sign-Up Genius so that we can ensure that the Blessed Sacrament is never left alone in the chapel. Please sign up for some special time in Adoration!

Continued prayers!

Thank you for all your prayers, PCA families! Please continue to storm heaven with prayers for Mrs. Earp and Ms. Cashin!


In case you haven't heard, Ms. Cashin got her lungs last week! Please continue to pray for her as it is a long recovery process.


"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." - Mark 11:24
