This week, part of our Operation Rice Bowl studies, we encounter Cesia in Nicaragua, where, despite a lack of economic opportunity, young people pursue their dreams by building businesses to better their lives. How can you work to improve the lives of others this Lent? How can you support those, worldwide, who are forced to flee their homes to find safety or better opportunities? Visit crsricebowl.org for more. 

A reminder that we will be celebrating our school Mass on Friday, Mar. 2, instead of our normal Wednesday. Hopefully, we will be back in church, but if not, I will let you know. Any Rice Bowl monies collected can be brought to school tomorrow and we will bring them up as part of our offering at Mass.
Report Cards
Report Cards are available on RenWeb now.
PreK and K students will be bringing home their report cards - please check backpacks!

If you are 60 days past due on tuition, you will need to get caught up on your payments before we will open up RenWeb or send home your child's report card.

Awards ceremony is on Friday following Mass, see you there.
School Council

Are you or another parent you know interested in serving on the Mary Queen School Council? If so, the next Parent Representative election is not far away. Elections are scheduled to take place in March. Two representatives will be elected to serve a three-year term, beginning June 1 st .

We are gearing up for our 5th annual Night of Angels event at the Round Barn! Please make sure you marked your calendars for Friday, April 20th. We promise a good time with food, drink and live musical entertainment provided by the Bedford Band. Look for packets to come home with your youngest child this week with a bright pink sheet on the top.
