HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY
Everyone enjoyed exchanging Valentines and having sweet treats as a change of pace. It really brought some joy to this bitterly cold week.
We do not have school on Monday, February 15th due to the holiday.
PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES
Conferences are being held next week on Tuesday the 16th and Thursday the 18th. This time around the conference will be led by your child (except for kindergarteners). If at all possible, please plan to come just a few minutes early to fill out a survey on Distance Learning. The staff and I reviewed the program in January. We want to know your thoughts on how it went from the home/family perspective.
Celebrating this week are Isaac Kramer (2-17) and Chase Revermann (2-18). God bless each of you on your birthday.
The public school recently announced that they will not be having school on the following Wednesdays: Feb. 24, March 10th & 24, April 14 & 28, and May 12. We will not be following that schedule. We will be in school!! We have reached out to the bus company about busing but have not heard back. We will keep you posted about that issue. We have confirmed that we will be having hot lunch.
Please come out on the Sunday the 21st from 11-2 to support the Soup & Sandwich Drive-Thru lunch. Pick up your lunch by driving thru the Church of St. Philip parking lot. All funds will be used for scholarships for next year. Thank you to the Knights of Columbus for helping to organize the drive-thru portion of this event. And a big THANK YOU to the school committee and Laura Beach or organizing the event.
Next week we begin Lent and our walk with Jesus to crucifixion. Fr. Jeff will be here on Wednesday to begin our journey with distribution of ashes. This year they will be sprinkled as directed by the Diocese. We will join together as a school to have Stations of the Cross via Zoom each week.
The Catholic United Financial raffle has 2 weeks left and we have quite a way to go. $3500 has been turned in out of a possible $10,000. The raffle is more difficult this year because of social distancing and we need everyone's help to make it to our goal. We held our third student drawing last Thursday. The winners were first grader Emma Springer, 2nd grader Andrew Bartes, and 3rd grader Kelsey Schmitz. CONGRATULATIONS!
