Cougar Connection

Dear Parents,

What a wonderful Catholic Schools celebration we enjoyed last week! There are so many elements of our school that make it a wonderful place-our students, parents, faculty, staff, priests, and the entire parish community!

We will have a noon dismissal this Friday. School will be closed on Monday and Tuesday of next week for our Mardi Gras holidays. As we celebrate Mardi Gras, we also prepare our hearts for Lent. Please join us on Wednesday, February 14 as we celebrate our Ash Wednesday Mass at 8:15.
Math-a-Thon

We are so proud of the spirit of giving among our students and families. During our recent Math-a-Thon our students raised $4,060.00 for the patients at St. Jude Hospital.

Mardi Gras Parade/Out of Uniform/Mardi Gras holidays

Many parents enjoyed the PK3 Mardi Gras parade last Friday. Please join us for more Mardi Gras fun this Friday, February 9. The Krewe of 4th graders will parade around the field at 11:00. Students may come out of uniform. Grades 6-8 should not wear shorts.   We will dismi ss at noon.
