I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. A number of our families were experiencing Thanksgiving for the first time, we continue to be blessed by the rich cultural diversity present at St. Sebastian School.
Students who returned church raffle tickets may have free dress on Monday, Nov. 30th. Thank you for your support with this fundraiser; if you have not sold your tickets, please bring any unused books to the front office.
Monday the Scholastic Book Fair will be open for teacher previewing. A schedule will be going home for the week when we return on Monday.
Message from Jamie Allee
I want to let you know about an upcoming fundraiser and opportunity for us to support the Church while completing some service hours. As you know, we have been asked to contribute an additional 10 services hours as part of our children's preparation for First Communion. This is a great opportunity for us.
On Sunday, December 6th, our school is hosting a Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser in the cafeteria. All proceeds will be donated to the Church to help with much needed electrical repairs. We will be serving pancakes before and after each Mass. Since our children are preparing for First Communion with the Church, I have asked that we have the first opportunity to sign up to volunteer. We need your help. You will be receiving an email shortly with a link to Volunteer Spot. Please take a moment to sign up for 1 or more shifts. See you there!
Thank you to the families that have been helping out at morning drop off. We still need volunteers from 5th and 6th grade for the month of December. This is a quick 30-minute volunteer opportunity from 7:30- 7:50am and a great way to get to know the children and families.
