Shopping Showcase Extravaganza News
* Packets were sent home last week.  Check your child's backpack!!!

* Every family is REQUIRED to either 'opt-out' for $100 or place an order for at least $200.  This is PER FAMILY (not per child!).

Emergency Reminders
All parents are asked to have their cell phones nearby and turned on during the school day. This is just in case of an emergency or unplanned early dismissal. Please be certain that you have a contingency plan for pick up for your child on such days and that your child knows what it is.

School Security
Security is important.  If you are visiting our school at any time , please be certain that you check in with the security guard or come into the school office to sign in and get a visitor's pass before going to the classroom.

Second Grade Parents
Attention second grade parents!  Please remember to contact your parish to register your child for the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion.  Sacramental preparation is done at your home parish according to Diocesan policy.
