Chipotle Fundraiser TONIGHT!

Don’t forget tonight, October 16th, is our fundraiser at Chipotle from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.! See below for all the details.

Thursday, October 18 Mass Collection

The Student Council will be having a Mass Collection on Thursday, October 18th. The money collected will be for Art with Heart, a benefit for Shriners Hospital. Shriners Hospital exists for one purpose: to provide quality care to children with orthopedic disabilities, spinal cord injuries and burns. All this is done at Shriners Hospital at absolutely no cost to families of these children. Over 4,000 children, each year, from the Western United States, come to the hospital to receive treatment. They help children better their lives and we are very excited to help accomplish this important goal.

Halloween Carnival/Costumes: October 27

Mark your calendars for our annual Halloween Carnival, October 27th starting at 5:30 PM. This is a fun event for children (and adults) to show off their costumes and play games for treats and prizes. Cost is $3 per child or $10 per family. The Knights of Columbus will also be hosting a dinner that includes a grilled hot dog, bag of assorted chips, and lemonade/water. All children in costumes are invited to eat for free, and the cost is $2 for everyone else, including parents. Family and friends are invited. (Please do not bring alcohol.)

Mrs. Lambert and I want our carnival to be lots of fun for the kids! (Anybody who knows me well knows that I absolutely love Halloween!) However, this is a family event and we do not want the younger children to be scared by our decorations or by costumes that other children wear. So, no weapons (real or fake) are allowed at the carnival. Children may wear masks and makeup, but they may not be too scary, be inappropriate for a Catholic event, or have blood (a small amount may be acceptable if cleared through us).

What is too scary or inappropriate? Clearly, that is an opinion question, and the final determination of whether or not a costume/makeup is appropriate rests with Mrs. Lambert and me. There is no possible way for us to delineate every acceptable costume or type of makeup. So, if you are not sure if your child’s costume follows these rules, please call us and/or send us a picture.

Thank you for your help in keeping the carnival fun for everyone!
