Back to School Night

Mark your calendars for Back to School Night this Thursday, August 24th at 6:30 pm beginning in the gym. This is for parents only. We ask that at least one parent attend. This is a great way to meet your student’s teacher(s). We will have two different classroom sessions to allow those of you with multiple children to meet all of your teachers.

Also, Mari McCord, religious education director at St. Vincent Parish, will be in Holy Family Hall from 5:30pm to 9:00pm on Back to School Night to help families register for First Communion, Confirmation, and RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults).
