Catholic Schools Week
It has been a WONDERFUL Catholic Schools Week. We started off with a great group helping to prepare for the breakfast on Saturday. On Sunday we had lots of help with the breakfast, excellent Mass helpers, and an absolutely outstanding talent show.
Monday we enjoyed pajama day and watching a movie to give the teachers a little break. Thank you to our School Committee for providing a delicious staff lunch!
Tuesday was especially fun for the K-1 students who traveled to St. Cloud to visit the Skatin’ Place. They had a blast learning to skate and enjoying the bounce houses.
On Wednesday we welcomed families for a special breakfast and then enjoyed a full day of fun. Students spent half the day visiting local businesses and half the day doing station activities at the church. Deacon John and Fr. Jeff spent some time with us giving tours of the church as well. Such a full day of fun!
Today our 2nd-5th grade students spent the day at Powder Ridge. This is always a highlight during CSW.
Tomorrow promises to be another great day with 8:30 Mass (students dress in their finest) and BINGO to end the day. We would love to have families join us for Mass, a great chance to praise God for this amazing school and the daily opportunity to draw closer to Him.
This week is only possible because of committed staff, parents, and volunteers. So many people helped in so many ways. To each and every one of you who joined in the festivities, we are grateful!
You'll find lots of pictures of our week by visiting the school Facebook page.
Report Cards were sent home on Tuesday along with Reading Counts updates and NWEA mid-year reports. Please contact your child’s teacher with specific questions and remember to sign and return the signature card and envelope.
Winter conferences are scheduled for 2/25 and 2/27. Please sign up for a conference slot using this LINK.
Discovery Day is coming up in a few weeks and we are hoping all current families will help us spread the word and invite prospective families.
Adults are welcome and encouraged to attend a showing of the movie “Unplanned” on Thursday 2/6 at 6:30PM at the Church of St. Philip. The film tells the true story of the impact of abortion on a young woman’s life. May we continue to pray for an end to abortion and all things that harm God’s sacred gift of life.
