Parish Picnic – Volunteer PIP Hours

HSA is looking for additional volunteers to assist with the children’s games during the parish picnic this Sunday. There are a variety of one-hour time slots open between 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. Please sign up using the signup website: Parish Picnic Sign-Up

Air Quality

Due in large part to the many fires that are burning, the air quality may be unhealthy for someone with breathing issues. Please let your child’s teacher know if you would like her/him to stay in from recess because of the air. The school policy is that the children go outside if the air quality is rated at green (good), yellow (moderate), or orange (unhealthy for sensitive groups), but we stay inside for recess if it is red (unhealthy) or worse.

Strategy Game Club (4th – 8th Grade)

Strategy Game Club will be this Friday, September 8th in the Music/Art room. We will be playing fun retro games like Stratego, Chess, Checkers, Backgammon, Cribbage, Uno, Skip-Bo, and others. No experience is needed; Mrs. Toner will happily explain the rules and play along. Unplug from your screens for an hour and see how much fun board games & cards can be! Pick up your child in the Spring Lane parking lot at 1:30. It’s a win-win, you get an extra hour to yourselves and your child learns a new game! Putting the Fun back into Fridays!

Thank You!

Nicholas Whitney, who is in 7th grade, would like to thank everyone who helped to support Operation Christmas Child. He raised $786.72 for this great cause. Thank you again for your support in memory of his cousin Tomas!
