Family Newsletter ~ February 27, 2020
You should have received communication on Tuesday regarding our Lenten projects. We sent home a daily family prayer activity calendar and some details regarding our Hospice care package service project. We also sent a Rice Bowl if your family is interested in collecting for Catholic Relief Services. The varied projects allow us to support both local and international service organizations.
We have our annual Lenten retreat scheduled for Friday, April 3. That day will include Mass, the Sacrament of Reconciliation (grades 2-5), and shadow Stations of the Cross. Families are encouraged to join us at 2:00 for Stations.
Just a reminder that Fridays are library days and we encourage the students to return books and take home new ones! Please keep in mind that even though students have a targeted reading level, they are not restricted to only reading those books. We have a wonderful variety of materials in the library and encourage students to read beyond their Reading Counts targets.
Thanks to all our school families who took part in conferences on Tuesday and those who will join us this evening. We appreciate your commitment to your children’s success and value your input during these meetings.
Catholic United Financial Schools Raffle
We have just a few more days before our raffle sale is complete! Ticket sales must end on Sunday, March 1 and all tickets (both sold and unsold) returned to the school Monday morning. Please help make this a smooth process by returning your tickets promptly. We need to prep everything on Monday to be sent to St. Paul for the drawing on March 12.
If anyone is interested in selling after one of the Masses this weekend, please let me know and then check in with the priest before Mass so he can make an announcement after Communion.
