Inspired to spread good in the world after the tragic elementary school shooting in Newtown, All Saints Catholic School is committed to joining many other schools and communities in performing random acts of kindness in honor of those lives lost . As a school we will participate in a "26 Acts of Kindness Campaign"which will cover 26 school days beginning on January 2. Each day's theme will be a different act of kindness. Some days are simple: "Put a smile on someone's face"or "Hold the door for someone". Some days involve collections for local charities: coats, hats, scarves toiletries, soups and pet food to name a few. ( We will be collecting toiletries the first week of January.) An "Acts of Kindness" calendar has been posted on our school website. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims' families on the sixth anniversary of their death.
Winter Parking Lot Reminder
It may be necessary during a storm for the snow plow company to remove the cones in the back parking lot. However, there is still NO PARKING by the curb for anyone except for a few staff members (near the preschool door) as usual. Please be careful when driving through the school parking lot and be sure to park in a legal space at all times.
Turkey Trot Dress Down Days
For those students who donated $25 or more towards this year's Turkey Trot, January 2, 3 and 4 will be Dress Down Days.
The school dress code is online in the school handbook. If you have a son, please take some time over the vacation to visit the barber shop if necessary. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Mid Term Exams
Midterm exams for the middle school begin on January 10. Study Guides will be posted on January 3.
Beginning January 2, the playground, small grassy areas and fields will be off limits after school for the winter. Everyone should be going home at dismissal.
Save the Date to Skate
Save the date! All Saints Catholic School invites you and your family for a free day to ice skate on January 21 from 10:40am - 12:00 noon at the Darien Ice House. This is our gift to you this holiday season to say "thank you" for your cooperation and support throughout the school year.
May Joy be your gift at Christmas and may Faith, Hope and Love be your treasures in the New Year.
