I hope that you are all enjoying the weekend. I would like to thank everyone who made last Thursday's DARE Graduation a fun and rewarding event for the fifth grade students; thank you especially to Mrs. de Jesus for coordinating the refreshments, gifts, and guest speaker for the evening.
We are responsible for preparing the First Friday Mass for February (February 3rd at 9:00 AM), which is the Feast of St. Blaise. This week, I will be asking for volunteers to serve as lectors, altar servers, and gift bearers. The readings can be found here. If there are more students that volunteer than there are readings, the 5th graders will also have the opportunity to read at the Stations of the Cross in March.
Looking to this coming weekend, the students are asked to attend the 11:30 AM Mass, in uniform, to kick off Catholic School Week. A reception will follow the Mass in the Church Auditorium. We are also having an Open House in the school building from 12:30 PM-2:00 PM; please invite anybody that you know who may be interested in attending our school for the 2017-2018 school year.
Also, we will be having a preliminary class religion bee this week to determine the two fifth graders who will represent the class at the school Religion Bee on Monday, January 30th at 1:00 PM. All of the students are asked to bring a can of soup to school that Monday which will be donated to a local food pantry.
Talent Show tickets are on sale here; DVDs of the performance can be ordered here.
Ticket orders are now open for the Father/Daughter Dance on Saturday, February 11th. The order form for tickets and pictures, as well as more information, can be found here.
Remember to keep clipping Box Tops; the contest will begin in February.
Please be sure to visit the 5th Grade page of the school website for copies of the newsletter, photos, forms, homework, and the assessment calendar, and have a great week!
