Dear parents and families,
Catholic Schools Week has been going extremely well and the students, faculty, and staff are having a blast celebrating the gift of a Catholic education. We begun the week by celebrating Mass with our new Bishop, His Excellency Bishop Burbidge. After Mass, Bishop Burbidge met with the students to speak with them reminding them every day to Rejoice, Renew, and Respect. We are truly blessed and honored to be Bishop Burbidge's first official grade school visit.
This week we also have already given out awards from our local chapter of the Knights of Columbus for an essay contest, free throw competition, and soccer goal competition.
Our Religion Bee and Spelling Bee brought some fantastic drama to our school cafeteria with our students showing their overall knowledge and ability to recall very difficult information in the stress of the bee in front of all their classmates. Our Spelling Bee contestants set a new school record for number of words correctly spelled! It was much more of a marathon competition than a sprint!
We were also blessed to have a representative for the National Catholic Education Association come to meet with our 2nd and 3rd graders to read a story and give away some goodies to support our school during Catholic Schools Week.
Thank you to all of our competitors, and congratulations to our winners!

Tomorrow is the class color dress down day. Please look below to see the class assignments and colors. The students are encouraged to dress down to show support for their team, and of course to continue to bring in cans to earn the dress down day and extra PE class with Mr. Muha.
The planning for this years Auction is getting underway. A flyer went home last week, but if you are looking to help on the planning committee or assist in any way please contact Mrs. Kennedy. The Auction is an incredibly important fundraiser for our school and it takes a great deal of planning, many volunteers, and very appreciated donations for it to be as beneficial as possible.
On Tuesday, February 7 please join us for the STEM Night with Marymount University in our school cafeteria from 6:00-7:30. There will be many exhibits for students to interact with, including a portable planetarium!
I look forward to seeing many of you this Saturday following the 5:00 Mass for our spaghetti dinner in the school cafeteria. The cost is $10 per adult. Please RSVP with the front office so we can ensure to have enough sauce made.
There will be a planning meeting for International Night this Monday, February 6 at 7:00 in the school cafeteria. Please contact Mrs. Acevedo if you have any questions.
