This week I spoke to students about bringing personal items from home (toys, games,,,). Some items have gone missing; this has created unsettling feelings amongst students. Please help your child understand the importance of following school rules and being respectful of the property of others. Returning misplaced items is a fundamental and necessary moral lesson for our children. It is important that a level of trust exists in our school/church family. Thank you for your support.
On Oct. 11th the church will be having their annual yard sale. If you have any items that you would like to donate, please contact the church at 310-478-0136. Please drop by or donate gently used items. If you have any questions, please call 310-478-0136.
This week families went to Shakey’s Pizza for Pizza Night. Everyone had a wonderful time with family and friends. This event helped raise money for the school and continues to be a great community builder. Thank you families for supporting this event!
This Sunday we will be celebrating the Feast of St. Francis at the 9:00AM mass together and joining in a blessing of the animals. Please plan on attending with your student(s) and pet(s) (if appropriate). Students will need to wear their school uniforms at mass. All students who attend in uniform may have free dress on Mon., Oct. 5th.
Starting Friday, Oct. 9th, all students in grades 4- 8 who are not in academic decathlon or choir, will be participating in our poetry/ songwriting class with Brandon Bjornson. Brandon worked with our students last year after school. Here is a reintroduction:
My name is Brandon Lee Björnson and I am 17, in the 12th grade at Wildwood.
I am a musician, songwriter and singer, filmmaker, photographer and poet!
As some of you may know, I taught a poetry and songwriting class at St. Sebastian school last year. I enjoyed seeing and getting to know you all so much that I want to do it again!
I hope to see you all on Oct. 9th!
