This week at our SPC meeting Fr. German shared with us an important fundraiser to support the electrical infrastructure at the church. The current system is steadily declining and needs immediate attention to restore it to an optimal level. Please join with all our families to support this very important project. All ticket stubs and money may be turned into the front office of the school. Although this will not be put toward school fundraising, students that return a book will get to participate in a free dress day. Student council will determine the best date and theme of dress. Tickets with a letter from Fr. German came home with each student Friday. Please make sure that you help your student locate the information and tickets.
Our goal is to have 100% participation from our families, let’s show that we can make a difference!
Our cafeteria is officially re-opened. Friday after mass, Fr. German performed a special blessing in thanksgiving of all the efforts that were put toward the remodel. If you haven’t had a chance to look at the face lift, make sure that you come by and take a peek!
Our annual Chocolate Sale will begin on Thursday, Nov. 19th. Chocolates will be going home on Thursday the 19th so make sure that #1 your child has two boxes of chocolate at pickup, #2 they are not left in the car as they can melt, and #3 try not to eat them all, it’s hard to eat just one bite.
There will be more information going home next week about the details of the chocolate sale.
This past Monday we had our first Newspaper Club meeting. Students are deciding on a name for the paper and beginning to think of great news happenings to write about. Please talk to your student about joining. We have a very qualified team leading the club, and this is a wonderful opportunity for fun writing practice. The next meeting is Monday, Nov. 16th at 4pm in room #6.
The SPC leadership team met on Tues. the 10th for a spirited meeting with a packed agenda. We discussed the following: how to help the church with the electrical repair, chocolate sale, pancake breakfast on Dec. 6th, scholastic book fair, script and gift cards and a spring accreditation- which I will be sharing with everyone in more detail next week. Thank you everyone who was able to attend, we were able to accomplish a lot!
