10:30 Mass at Annunciation Catholic Church - Students will be given the opportunity to participate in the liturgy, as well as receive a non uniform pass for Monday, February 5th for those who attend Mass in their school uniform.
January 29th - In Our Community - This is a non-uniform day. Students will spend the day doing various service projects for people in our community. Please see your teacher's update for more information on what your child's class will be doing.
1:30 Catholic Schools Week kick-off celebration and FOAM PIT - Students will gather in the gym to hear some inspirational words of wisdom from Fr. Jeffrey and a little something special by our faculty and staff. Immediately following, students will go outside to enjoy a refreshing run through the foam. If you would like to volunteer for this please contact Katie Fenstermacher. Students will need a change of clothes this day. We do not anticipate that the students will get very wet, but their clothes may get a little damp from the foam and we don't want them to get cold in the car line.
January 30th - In Our Nation - Students and invited guests will gather in the gym at 8:45 a.m. for an assembly which will include a guest speaker and a short musical performance by some of our students. Following the assembly, at 9:15 students and guests will line up for our second annual In Our Nation Day Parade at 9:30. Parents and military guests are welcome to walk with us or enjoy the parade from our front lawn. After the parade, military guests and the students who invited them, will be escorted to the reception area for coffee and donuts. Parents interested in volunteering on this day please contact Katie Fenstermacher or your child's teacher. We need lots of help getting this event information out to the public!
January 31st - In Our Parents, Volunteers and Donors - Students will show their appreciation to parents, donors, and volunteers who support our school with time, talent, and/or financial gifts. We are so thankful for all the generous support we receive.
February 1st - Grandparents' Day - Grandparents are invited and encouraged to join us for Mass at 8:30 followed by classroom receptions and family photos from 9:15 -11:00. Remember to visit the Scholastic Book Fair in the Library on this day! Please notify the school office if your child(ren)'s grandparent contact information has changed by Wednesday, January 10th. Invitations will be mailed soon!
February 2nd - In Our Students - This is a non uniform day! Students will begin the day with a school-wide field trip to GT Lanes for a bowling and bounce bonanza! We will need parent help on this day! Contact your child's teacher if you would like to accompany your child's class. Unfortunately, due to a lack in lane availability, parents will not be able to participate in the bowling. Students will return to school by lunch time. No Ants Picnic will not continue due to the lack of accommodations in the gym for all to enjoy and be safe.
February 3rd - Open House 10:00 – 12:00 - Open House for Prospective Students
All faculty and staff will be present to give tours and answer questions. If you know any families who are interested in our school, please tell them about our Open House.
