Happy Service Week

Thank you to the many helpers who came out last Saturday to rake leaves for the Carmelite Sisters. They were extremely grateful. Tomorrow is the last day to send in pledged service hours in honor of a deceased loved one.

The students will be making rosaries later this week that will be blessed and given to
hospital patients.

Please remember to bring in food for the school-wide food drive and gently used or new winter clothing for the winter clothing drive too. Thank you!

Mass on Thursday, November 9th

Please make sure students are in full dress uniform, which includes the vest.

No School, Friday, November 10th
Please note that there is no school this Friday, November 10th for Professional Educators Day. Extended Day will be open. If you are planning on having your child attend Extended Day, you will need to send them with a cold lunch.

Last call to sign-up for Trivia Night!

Friday, November 10th
Benvegnu Center
6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Get your table together and test your trivia knowledge. Tickets are $15 per person. You and your group bring appetizers and drinks to share at your table.
Doors open at 6:30 pm and question rounds begin at 7:00 pm. Prizes will be awarded to top teams. Adults only.
Please bring in your registration and check to the office by end of school this Thursday. Registration form available here or in the school office.

Basketball Practices (2nd-8th Grades)

Basketball practices will start next week; please note that students may not stay after school to wait for their basketball practices unless the practice starts at 3:30 pm. If the practice starts at 4:30 pm or later, the student must be picked up by a parent or go to Extended Day until the practice starts. Students who attend Homework Lab (which ends at 3:50 pm) must also be picked up by a parent or go to Extended Day even if they have a practice that starts at 4:30 pm. Parents may not leave children in the gym unless their coach is present. These rules are in place to make sure children are always supervised to maximize their safety. Thank you for your help!

8th Grade Play

Our 8th grade class will perform “Trouble in Friendlyville”–a western comedy musical of epic proportions! Performances are Thursday, November 16th at 1:30 pm (for the students) and 6:30 pm in the gym. Hope to see y’all there!
