A Message from the Principal
A Season of Giving
 
Thank you to all those who donated to "Giving Tuesday 2018". Your continued generosity to our school is appreciated. 

Thank you to all those who donated to our Turkey Trot for Tech. Congratulations to all the lucky winners of our raffles. The total amount collected was $6,700. We have purchased 3 - 65" LCD TV's, 3 mounts, and 3 Google comcasts.  
 
Between Giving Tuesday and Turkey Trot for Tech we raised almost $9,000 with participation from 125 out of our 330 families. Imagine how much more we could raise with even more participation! Your participation matters, even the smallest amount. We'd love to have 100% participation in our angel fund. Showing your support and belief in the mission of your child's school is so important. If you'd like to make a donation to our annual fund at any time, you can click here and give online. 
Advent
 
advent wreath
The season of Advent is here...the dawning of a new Church year!  For us at All Saints Catholic School, this season has special significance.  We are blessed in our Catholic school setting to celebrate the true meaning of Advent and Christmas.  " Rejoice, Christ is coming" is our scriptural focus for this Advent season. Every week the students, either with their homerooms or religion classes, will gather in the chapel for a prayer service and lighting of the advent wreath. 

During the weeks of Advent, we encourage you to take time in your homes for reflection, prayer and family talks during the hustle & bustle of preparing for Christmas. The best gift we can give our children is ourselves. Years from now, their fondest memories will be the times just spent being together with you.
