Dear Parents,

In the last seven school days....
  • Our kindergarten feasters dined on Thanksgiving goodness.
  • Our second grade Presidents graced the auditorium stage.
  • Our fourth grade saints regaled us with their stories.
  • Our fifth grade performers recounted lessons and sang us carols.
  • Our sixth grade altruists filled over 300 sock-stockings with your toiletry donations for the homeless.
  • And our entire school community banded together to collect cans to feed the less fortunate. 
Next week brings band and choir concerts and Grumpy Shepherds at the end of the week.

In the midst of all this joyous celebration, our students continue to learn and grow and thrive. It is a special, joyful, chaotic time of year and we're thankful for it all.

Please do what you can to support the food drive tomorrow. We are on our way to 2,000,000 cans!!! Congratulations to the Blue Team for bringing in more cans and congratulations to the Eighth Grade for winning the grade level contest...today, we collected over 5,000 cans! (Oh yeah, congratulations to Holy Redeemer for winning back the Can Trophy for collecting more cans than BSS. We allowed them to tie up the series 2-2. Next year can't come soon enough!)

Faithfully,
Chris Kelly
