Tour the halls which are covered with student artwork. It is also the CYO winter sports Mass at 11:00 am students should wear their jersey and sit as a team.
Today report cards were sent home. Please return the signed envelope by Wednesday. Also, coming home today is the 2019-2020 registration packet. Please note, if you are not returning next year, please indicate on the envelope and return to school. You may return your completed packets starting on Sunday and pay your registration fees at the office. Mrs. Kozma will be available to process credit card payments.
Finally, Night at Races information was also included in the registration package. Save the Date; we are having a Mardi Gras theme this year on March 2, 2019. This event is known for its great food and a memorable evening.

Box Top collection throughout February
It's time to gather all your box tops. In February, we are asking families to send in saved box tops for the school! Earnings from Box Tops help our school in various ways, from new supplies, new gym equipment, repairs or projects.
Please note some of Box Top's submission guidelines:
* Bundle if you can in groups of 50 using and Ziploc type bag or envelope.
* Expired coupons are not accepted
* Coupons without full sight of date or letter product code located upper left-hand side cannot be accepted.
* Please do not count Bonus Coupons as part of your 50.
If you do not have 50, no a problem, send in any coupons collected so far so that they do not expire before our next drive. It is crucial that each submission has a homeroom number on it so that we can keep track of classroom totals. Congratulations to 4A who collected the last drive in October!
