This four day week passed very quickly, and went from warm to wet in what seemed an instant! It is definitely time to turn over closets and make certain that our students have the necessary “gear” for fall and winter in New England! Weekly walks to Mass will take place for as long as the weather permits, so it is definitely time to bundle up a bit! In classrooms, students are permitted to wear the school uniform sweater to stay warm, unless it is a gym day, when they may wear SFX sweatshirts. Our middle school students will have a new addition to their Special Occasion Dress uniform come November 1
, as the sweater will be a part of their attire.
This coming week, our 8th graders will be shifting into gear, as they prepare for one of their major fundraising events of the school year. The Family Halloween Dance is a frighteningly fun, annual school tradition and crowd pleaser! Trick or treating in the first floor hallway, dancing and playing games in the gym, and of course the infamous haunted stage are the highlights of the evening. Please plan on joining us for our annual Halloween dance that bound to be a spooktacular evening. To get in the spirit of the evening, students will enjoy a Halloween Colors Dress Down Day on Friday the 26
Immediately following the 8
grade event, and equally as popular, is the arrival of our All Saints Day Celebration! Our faculty and students will celebrate this beautiful school tradition and Holy Day of Obligation by dressing as saints, attending Mass, and participating in an awesome All Saints Day Trunk or Treat. Please begin brainstorming with your children their “saint of choice” for our dress up day! Thank you in advance to our SEC reps continuing to encourage and motivate others to volunteer and to make our school events so special for our school family.
We have much to look forward to, and much to be grateful for!
I am hoping to see many of you tomorrow night at our first time event, Fall Harvest Night. It is set to be a wonderful evening! Dress warm!
Have a wonderful weekend and God bless!
