Weekly Update --August 11, 2017
Dear Parents,

It was a great first few days here!!  It was busy, busy, busy -- this time of year always is.  It seems that the students adjusted well to their new routines.  I have to say I'm not sure about them, but I know I am tired and am looking forward to a restful weekend.

Each week I send out this update to try to keep you informed about what is happening here at school.  I realize that the teachers and  Home & School Association also send you messages and if you have more than one child it can seem overwhelming.  I hope you will take the time to read over what you receive as it will be helpful in keeping you up to date.  We plan to work harder at posting the messages to the website each Monday or Tuesday so you can always check back for reminders.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Mrs. Bogataj

Each week we attend Mass as a school community on Thursday morning at 8:00. Parents are always welcome to join us!  If you would like to sit with your child just let the teacher know and find a place behind the classes - this helps the other children stay focused.  (Next week we will be going on Tuesday for Assumption).
