See many of you tonight for FFN7!
 Sure to be a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious night!

I look forward to seeing many of our school families tonight for Family Fun Night! This annual event is our first opportunity to come together as a school community for some fun, games, prizes, photo opportunities and ice cream! Thank you (in advance) to all of our SEC reps, and volunteers giving of their  time  this evening to ensure the successful execution of this very popular, school wide event!

Thank you to all of the parents, grandparents and family members who have completed the CORI paperwork and online training sessions. It is very exciting to have so many individuals wanting to be involved in our school! Your dedication and offering of your time is critical for the continued success and vitality of our school. If you have any questions regarding the CORI process, please contact the school office.

I also look forward to seeing our students' household pets on Thursday for the blessing of the animals! Please note the specifications and details found in this newsletter that will make for a smooth and prayerful pet blessing!

This weekend we turn begin the slow turn of our calendars, as well as our faith focus, to the month of October, which is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. As a school family, we will be focusing our eyes, readying our hearts, and increasing our love of Our Blessed Mother as we pray a daily decade of the rosary throughout the month. Please consider making a commitment to support our efforts by praying the rosary at home.
 
Have a great weekend and counting on seeing many of you tonight!
