Retirement Reception – May 22, 2017

We are having a retirement reception for Carol Barman and Rosemary Bennett on Monday, May 22 from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM in the Holy Family Hall. Please RSVP to the school office today, May 16th. We will be having appetizers and drinks. A big thank you for all the years of service they have given at Saint Vincent de Paul Parish School.

BBQ – May 20, 2017

The Knights of Columbus will be hosting a barbecue for the students, families, and faculty/staff after the 5:00 PM mass on this Saturday, May 20th. There is no cost. This is also a great opportunity to meet and congratulate Mr. Jeff Allen and his wife Mindi. Jeff has just been accepted into the Diaconate Formation Program.

Garden Clean-Up

Garden Clean-Up: This Sunday, May 21 beginning at 9:00am, we will prepare the student garden for planting. (The school garden is by the shed next to the baseball field closest to King’s Row Drive. It is not the prayer garden next to Nano Nagle.) Please bring gloves, shovels, and spades, if you have them. This is great way to earn Helping Hands and PIP hours, as well as a great thing to do in support of our focus on service. The produce we grow goes to the St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen in the fall.

Used Uniforms

Don’t forget you may start bringing in your gently used uniforms (no holes, no broken buttons or zippers) in a bag labeled with your name to the school office. Those donating will receive FREE DRESS for the last week of school! We will collect used uniforms until Friday, May 19th.

Used uniforms will be sold on Saturday, May 20th from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and May 22nd and 23rd before and after school in the school gym. This is a great way to save money!
