The first few weeks of the year have surely flown by! It is wonderful to see all of the students settled into their new classes and eager to learn new things. Our first few weeks have gone very smoothly, and we appreciate your help in donating supplies, following car line procedures, and returning necessary paperwork in a timely manner.
We hope you will join us as we celebrate Mother Mary’s birthday on September 8th in the courtyard with “Muffins for Mary”. The celebration will begin at 8:45. Students will say a decade of the Rosary and sing some songs to celebrate our Blessed Mother’s birthday.
Back to School Nights are also very important, and we hope all families can attend! A plethora of useful information is given out, and you have a chance to see your child’s classroom and have questions answered by the teacher. Grades 5-8 will host Back to School Night on September 1st and Grades K-4 is on September 8th. Both nights begin at 6:00, but look for more detailed schedules in “Tuesday Reminders”.
Our athletic department is in full swing! It is amazing to see all of the students leaving campus for Cross Country runs. Well over 100 students participate and make us proud! The basketball teams are already off to a winning start and are cheered on with enthusiasm from our JV and Varsity Cheerleaders! Our Fine Arts Department is also in full swing with Glee Club meeting every Thursday from 2:50-4:00.
With school pictures on September 14th and 16th, Progress Reports on the 16th, Class Pictures on the 22nd and 23rd, and Mother & Daughter Tea on the 25th, September always proves to be a busy month for the school! We hope to see you at some of our events this month and look forward to the relationships we will continue to build as part of this wonderful Christian Community.
