Our SoSP Marketing Team has been busy over the last few months bringing our new website to life. Be sure to bookmark it and watch for regular updates. The address hasn't changed -- just the format.
5th Grade Trip to Wolf Ridge 4/15-4/17
Our 5th graders are gearing up for our annual trip to Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center. This is a great opportunity for our students to get to know each other better, enjoy team building, learn valuable science skills, and develop a stronger appreciation for God's creation. We are grateful for the preparation Nick and Joan Olson are providing for this trip.
In just a couple of weeks we will enter the holiest week of the year. At the SoSP we will celebrate a special meal, our Christian Passover, on Thursday, 4/18. We are in need of a few parents who will help us with this prayer ritual, serve lunch, and help clean up. If you are able to volunteer, please contact the office. We would need you from approximately 10:15 - 1:00. This is a great lead-in for the beautiful and important liturgies during the Triduum.
Please note that the SoSP will not have school on Friday, 4/19 but we will have school on Monday, 4/22.
First Communion Retreat
Our second graders will have their retreat after school today at St. John's in preparation for reception of the Sacrament of Eucharist. As a school community, we lift up all these students in prayer. First Communion Sunday is May 5.
We are collecting valuable information from all stakeholders -- parents, parishioners, committee members, etc. in our annual survey. The survey is a little different this year because it is part of our self-study for accreditation. Please click on the link and take five minutes to complete our survey. We appreciate your feedback!
