Extended Day

Please note that Extended Day will be closed Wednesday, November 21st.

Spirit Dress

Spirit Dress Day will be Tuesday, November 27th. The “theme” for spirit day is Pajama Day! Wear pajamas to school (regular shoes must be worn) – no slippers, shorts, tank tops, holes, etc. If you do not wish to wear your pajamas you may wear St. Vincent spirit wear.

Move Back the Church Volunteers Needed

We need your help to move back in to the Church. A work day has been set aside for Friday, November 30, 2018, beginning at 12:30PM and will continue until the work is complete. Donate some time if you are able. There will be both heavy and light work. Come for just an hour, bring some cooled bottled water for the workers, stay longer if possible, or just come by and see if you are needed.

Spirit Wear Orders

If you missed the previous spirit wear order, here is another chance to order. Please note that we have added to the spirit wear a hooded sweatshirt. You may order this hooded sweatshirt with our HEART design, that has all our students’ first names included. All orders need to be in by Wednesday, November 28th. Click here to place an order. As well, see below to view the new hoodie sweatshirt with the HEART design. Please contact the school office with any questions.


As the weather turns colder, please remember to limit idling. The ordinance is that idling should be limited to 2 minutes. Idling beyond 2 minutes is permitted when temperatures are below 32 degrees. Thank you for your help.
